      Winemaker Notes

      Golden to deep amber depending on its age. When young, the nose bursts with intensity: fresh fruits (very often apricot) and citrus aromas. Over 10 years old, the wine gains even greater aromatic complexity filled with dried fruits, spicy and honey notes. A display of the vintage character in flavors. A beautiful balance between vivacious acidity and sweetness. The Disznóko Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos tastes fresh, long and is always superbly complex and focused. Amazing length, often with a spicy finish. Spirited!

      Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

      Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2008 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 70% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 10% Hárslevelu, the maceration mostly with finished wine. This has an exceptional bouquet: Satsuma and mandarin, quince and marmalade, wonderful mineralite and tension. The palate is very well balanced with mandarin, lime, orange rind and a touch of quince. This is edgy, a more unpredictable yet compelling Tokaji from Disznoko with a very long and sustained finish. This comes highly recommended—an outstanding 5 Puttonyos.

      Made from 70% Furmint, 20% Zeta, and the rest Harslevelu that’s all from the Discnoko Vineyard (this is one of the few estates in Tokaji to be on a single vineyard), the 2008 5 Puttonyos offers gorgeous notes of orange blossom, honey, caramelized pineapple, and exotic flowers. It’s full-bodied, elegant, and silky, with perfectly balanced sweetness and acidity. This cuvée spent 24 months in 25% new oak and is a beautiful dessert wine.

      Tokaj is thought to be the first vineyard region in the world to have adopted a classification system. The Disznóko estate was classified as a first growth property at the time of the initial classification in 1772 and remains so today.

      The Disznóko estate consists of a single tract of land that spread over 250 acres at the south-west entrance of the Tokaj region. Four of the approved noble grape varieties are planted in this single vineyard – Furmint, Harslevelu, Zeta and Sagamuskotaly.

      The estate is essentially a hill of volcanic clay soil with perlite pebbles: at the top of the hill is the boar-shaped rock from which the estate takes its name, and the vineyards are arranged down the southern slope, with the winery at the bottom of the slopes. The vineyard is protected by the cold northern winds by the Zemplén hills right behind it, and draws light and heat from its southerly exposure. Acclaimed as one of the three most favorable sites of Aszu in Tokaj. Morning autumn mists and warm breezes ensure optimal conditions for noble rot. The Botrytis develops, concentrating the natural sugars, flavors and acids in the grapes. The wines gain their fire from the mineral-rich volcanic land, rhyolite-tuff with clay soils.

      In 1992, the estate was acquired by AXA Millésimes and many improvements were made: the vineyards were rehabilitated and replanted, old buildings were refurbished, and new state-of-the-art wine making facilities were constructed. The new winery pays homage to the nearby old winery and inside it’s apparent how Disznóko has, above any other estate in the region, restored Tokaji’s reputation to the days it was considered “the wine of kings and king of wines” (Louis XIV).

      The name Disznóko meaning "the rock of the wild boar" was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock 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, Disznóko's fortunes suffered under nationalization 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 Disznóko and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
