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)

Pale honey colour. Heady, lots of dried grapes. Edgy, spicy, like velour cloth on a piano. Very Mitteleuropean. Edgy acidity. Very vibrant but not that sweet. Tingle tangle on the palate but massive weight and sweetness. Like dried plums. Drinking range: 2021 - 2035Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Sep 2016)

Disznókő

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.
