Revue du Vin to be published in China

One of the world's top wine magazines, Revue du Vin de France, plans to launch a monthly Chinese-language edition in the spring by Marie Claire publishing group. Speaking to reporters in Paris, its publisher Jean-Paul Lubot said the wine market in China was undergoing "a real explosion" and that Revue du Vin wanted to be part of the action.

"One part of the magazine will be dedicated to wine and its consumption in China, and will be produced by a team of Chinese journalists", added editorial chief Denis Saverot. "The other part will deal with great wines from France and carry articles from Revue du Vin, translated and adapted into Chinese".

Founded in 1927, Revue du Vin is regarded as one of the world's premier wine magazines, alongside Decanter in Britain and Wine Spectator in the United States.
