2007 Attila Gere Villany "KOPAR" (Previously $53)

SKU #1065476

The 2007 Kopár is a blend of 52% Cabernet Franc, 46% Merlot and only 2% Cabernet Sauvignon. A change was made in the fermentation of the wines as well; new small barrique has been replaced in large part by big oak casks. The wine deserves to be ranked among the best from Bordeaux, Tuscany and Napa. This substantial, structured, age worthy wine is not with out its charms, even for the impatient. Right now it is heavy with currant, dried roses, cedar and cigar smoke. The tannins are plentiful and perfectly ripe with the generosity of a warm climate, but the definition of a cool one. Consume now until 2020+.

Country:

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
