The classic Tokaji balancing deep marmalade characters with clean fresh acidity.L&S (Feb 2019)
Aside from bull’s blood, the most celebrated and historic Hungarian wine style is tokaji, the luscious, unctuous, glowing-amber sweet wines from the Tokaj region in the hills of the country’s northeast towards Slovakia. It’s the balance of flavours such as barley sugar, orange marmalade and caramelised stone and tropical fruit with an enormous dose of (naturally occurring) sugar and an electric jolt of bright acidity that makes good sweet tokaji such as Disznókő Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2011 so compellingDavid Williams, The Observer (Oct 2021)
Deep gold. Marmalade and stones and roasted mushrooms. Complex and deep and reverberating. This is stunning. Fresh greenness threading through all that golden wine, crushed mint and green tea leaves. Such a beauty! Drinking range: 2019 - 2035 Rating: 17.5 Tamlyn Currin - www.JancisRobinson.com (Feb 2019)
The name Disznókő - the rock of the wild boar - was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock sat atop a small hill overlooking the vineyards. Listed as a "first growth" as far back as 1732, this 150ha vineyard in the south west of the Tokaji region has long been regarded as one of the region's finest.
As with much of Tokaji, Disznókő's fortunes suffered under nationalisation during the Communist era. But, in 1992, it was purchased by AXA Millésimes (owners of Château Pichon Longueville and Quinta do Noval, amongst others) who have reinvigorated Disznókő and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
