2000


2000 was a very comfortable vintage, like a rally with a good friend on the tennis court, the ball bouncing back and forth in a regular and smooth rhythm under the hot sun. This is an outstanding vintage in Tokaj and at Disznókő. We have here creamy and honey aromas in abundance. These voluptuous wines are the perfect balance between richness and acidity.

 

My first vintage as director of Disznókő. I was lucky – it is also one of the best since the emblematic 93 and 99 vintages. Warm and dry from late April, the vines had already begun to bloom in mid May. A dry, hot summer brought very early ripening, and by late August the grapes were ripening nicely. The aszú grapes had a deep violet colour, their flesh were dark jam-like, the seeds brown and completely dry. They have become opulent wines giving true pleasure.
