Château Pajzos

Hungarian winery with headquarters in the town of Sárospatak in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region. Since 1992 it has been owned by the French investment group C.F.G.V.T., which is managed by Jean-Louis Laborde and his son Ronan. Château Megyer is also part of the estate, both estates are managed under the same Hungarian administration and the cellar facilities in Bodrogolaszi are also shared. The vineyards cover 64 hectares in the eponymous Pajzo vineyard, which is planted with the varieties Furmint (50%), Hárslevelü (40%), Muscat Lunel (Yellow Muscat) and Oremusz (Zéta). The quality wines are vinified reductively, the aszús with air contact slightly oxidative. The winery is a member of the "Tokaj Renaissance" association and produces all the typical brands of Tokaj. The Aszú-Essencia vintage 1993 is considered to be particularly outstanding (see also under century wine). Only 5,000 half-liter bottles were produced. The fermentation in the barrel lasted over three years. The amber-coloured, viscous, oily wine has 530 g/l total extract, 435 g/l residual sugar, 12.5 g/l acidity and 4.72% vol alcohol content.
