Never thought I'd see the day!

I'd heard that the Chinese had been buying the occasional Bordeaux vineyard but never thought I'd see Chinese wine in a rural French supermarket:

Light, like a flat Lambrusco, slightly sweet with a mild hint of Benyllin.  One for Experience.
Sic transit and all that..
