For 2021 and the Year of the Metal Ox, Doors initiated a collaboration between photographer Zhang Xiao and Lafite’s Chinese wine, Long Dai.

Zhang Xiao, Longdai n°10

The artist Zhang Xiao, originally from Shandong and whose hometown is only a few kilometers from Long Dai, came to interpret the area by looking for subtle “fragments”. His images captured with Polaroid leaves soaked in water, then scanned and transferred to paper follow a route comparable to that of winemaking; the grain and the imperfection of the photos approaching the components found in great wines.
