The U.K is currently the leading importer of dry white Bordeaux wines—14% of all dry white Bordeaux is imported into that country. The U.S. and Japan aren’t far behind, importing 11% and 10% of all dry white Bordeaux respectively. But China doesn’t yet appear to be interested in Bordeaux’s amazing dry whites, the best of which (like Château Haut Brion Blanc) cost many hundreds of dollars a bottle. While China imports a whopping 65% of all red Bordeaux, it imports just 2% of white Bordeaux.
