Chateau Pajzos Tokaji Asz˙ 5 Puttonyos 2016, Hungary
- Hungarian Tokajis were historically among the most highly prized wines in the world. Long before Sauternes, they graced the tables of European elites and connoisseurs. In the summer of 1991, the late Jean-Michael Arcaute and Jean-Louis Laborde launched the Renaissance of Tokaji. They led a group of 12 wine lovers and acquired ChÔteau Pajzos, carrying out the same year the first "private enterpriseö harvest and vinification. Today, the 100ha Domaine (55ha of vineyards) is under the sole ownership of the Laborde family, who also owns ChÔteau Clinet in Pomerol. The estate is located in the heart of the Tokaji region, on slopes surrounding the famous wine village of Sßrospatak. It was long acknowledged for having one of the finest vineyards of the region. Its volcanic, rocky soils ensure that the native varieties ľ Furmint, Muscat, Hßrslevelu and Zéta ľ are both rich in natural acidity and concentration and the location between the Bodrog and Tisza rivers makes it ideal for attaining noble rot, indispensable for producing the sweet Asz˙ wines. Made from a blend of 75% Furmint, 25% Harslevelu, this wine has been aged for 3 years in 220l Szerednyei oak barrels from the Zemplén hills. It has a medium amber color. On the nose it has an intensive bouquet of dried apricots, honey and meadow flowers. The mouth-feel is full-bodied and sweet with acid showing notes of butterscotch, dried apple, candied orange peel, clove, marzipan, lemon, cardamom, bread.
