About Grand Tokaj

Grand Tokaj, formerly the Tokaji Kereskedóház Rt, owns 70 hectares of vineyard in Hungary’s world renowned Tokaj-Hegyyalja, Unesco World Heritage. The winery is currently undergoing significant renovation as part of its ongoing commitment to quality winemaking.

Grand Tokaj is best known for its sweet Aszú wines which are made using traditional winemaking techniques dating back to the 1630’s. A base wine is made in September from healthy grapes, then from mid-October, raisin-like, sugar-rich Aszú grapes are handpicked into ‘puttony’ baskets and lightly crushed. Either 3, 4, 5 or 6 ‘puttony’ (25 kg) of Aszú grapes are added to 136 litres of base wine which then undergoes maceration and a second fermentation.

The wine is then aged in small oak barrels for a minimum of 4 years and a further 9 months in bottle before release. Aszú wines are delicious drunk on their own or with nuts, foie gras, blue cheese and most desserts.

ASZÚ 5 PUTTONYOS 2013

Grand Tokaj Puttonyos at Pol Roger

Aromatic notes of peach, orange peel, figs, exotic flowers and a touch of dill at the end.  On the palate, it has a clear fruity flavour with orange, quince, pear and apricot,  along with a suggestion of white chocolate and vanilla essence. The acids keep the wine round and lengthy. The finish is a lingering lime-grapefruit in the mouth with a mature coffee aftertaste thanks to the barrel-ageing process.

The wine has aromas of vibrant dried apricots, spring chamomile blossoms, dried orange and tropical fruits along with a tender hint of pink pepper. Savouring it one may discover a mix of plum and apricot jam. A full-bodied wine with high acid and sugar content that presents itself with round balance and harmony. The flavour fills the mouth with a long lasting, fresh taste.

 Notes of pear, dried chamomile and candied orange peel are prevalent, mingled around the sweet botrytis. The wine also has a smoky bouquet due to the new wooden barrels. Flavours of pear compote and quince jelly are most prominent, with hints of camomile tea and ripe orange.

ESZENCIA 2013

This wine is defined by an amber-golden hue that is paired with an oily, dense texture. The deep, full flavour from the noble rot becomes apparent in it’s aroma immediately. 

ASZÚ 5 PUTTONYOS 1972

This wine opens with a salty mineral scent, followed by tinges of sorba apple, Cornellian cherry, and raisin. In the mouth, the rich sweet flavours of dried citrus fruit peel, honey, and apricot marry perfectly with a long acid finish that gives this wine a wonderful freshness.
