Cuvée presentation

The number of Puttonyos indicates the sweetness of the wine. 5 indicates a minimum sugar level of 120 g/l. Disznoko is a great Tokaji that can be drunk while still young and fruity, with aromas of pineapple and passion fruit. Or alternatively – in the best years – after 20, 30 or 50 years' keeping. This makes it more complex, lending it aromas of truffle, caramel and spices. And in fact, this multi-level complexity is what impresses most about Tokay's wines. An immense wine, which all lovers of great dessert wines should be queueing up to try.

Information about domain Disznoko

Disznoko is the biggest Tokaj domain, with a vineyard spanning 100 hectares in north-west Hungary, on the Slovakian border. It's also one of the highest-reputed. Axa Millésimes purchased it in 1993 and totally restored it. A new winery was built in 1995, decked out with the latest tech innovations. Laszlo Meszaos, an agriculturalist who trained in Perpan then in Hungary, before arriving at Disznoko in 1995. He has been managing the domain since 2000. Six white grape varieties are grown in Tokaj: Fürmint, Zeta, Harslevelu, Muscat Jaune, Köverszölö and Kabar. La Revue du vin de France confirmed that Axa Millésimes' purchase of the domain ‘provoked a little revolution in shaking up the original style of the Tokaji Aszù. Does this mean they betrayed the unique identity of the Disznoko terroir? Far from it. With great purity, and marked by a magnificent acidity , the wines are very elegant and age admirably well'.
