Chateau Pajzos Tokaji "T" Dry Furmint


If you’ve yet to taste the delectable wines of Hungary, I highly suggest you do so. These wines were revered by the elite of Europe throughout history, but fell out of popularity at some point. Over the last decade or two, however, they’ve been experiencing a renaissance. In 1991 the Hungarian wine industry was privatized, which has allowed wine lovers to purchase up long-forgotten vineyards and revive them. Owners of the flaunted Chateau Clinet in Bordeaux are among those who have taken notice, and they purchased Chateau Pajzos in Hungary’s Tokaji region.

Tokaji has been on the short list of my favorite wines of the world for nearly a decade now. The style of wine coming out of this region is truly spectacular. Today’s bottle of Chateau Pajzos “T” Dry Tokaji is a blend of the traditional grapes of the region, 90% Furmint, 6% Hárslevelű, and 4% Yellow Muscat, aged in 100% stainless steel for 6 months. It’s very bright and refreshing, with a hint of tongue tickling spritz, and crisp acidity. The wine is packaged in a uniquely shaped bottle, which is traditional in the Tokaji region. The Chateau Pajzos Tokaji Furmint is very similar to the dry Chenin Blancs of the France's Loire Valley. It’s fairly aromatic with notes of pear, melon, and hints of nuttiness and white flowers. The palate is crisp and dry with flavors of of honeydew, cantaloupe, white grapefruit, hints of lemon and lime, pebbly mineral qualities, and bit of peanuts. A great wine with light seafood such as oysters, prawns, and delicate white fish.
