A beauty from Eger: Kisfiam Cuvée 2011 from Bukolyi Family Estate.
Winemaker is the young Marcell Bukolyi, a purposful personality, who makes natural wines, on the best vineyards of Eger wine region. His father László Bukolyi was also a key member of the region’s wine life. They have a nice family estate, there are no huge quantities, just the suitable for the high quality.
I was lucky because Marcell said only a few bottle left of this vintage. After I tasted the wine, I read a recommendation – which was published in 2012 – and I found that it went through many changes over two years. Perfect tannin structure, nice eger style acids, scent – as the taste also – spicy and rich fruity. Maybe the reason why it was overwhelming for me, is that at summertime I wish fruity and a little bit sweet flavors. It gave me this wealth, with pruriency, temtation, and I am curious about the 2013 vintage, which is currently on the shelfs.
Varieties: Kékfrankos, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Oh and Kisfiam means “My little son”
Long break, but my excuse is lot of work and experience with wines, which kept away from my computer and from worldwideweb. I m coming from the most beautiful items, to share with you.
First beauty is a Rose from Mátra Historical Wine Region (Otherwise Mátra is our highest mountain which saves the southern slopes.)
The wine won a silver medal in VinAgora International Wine Festival in June. (The jury is composed of highly experienced individuals who have a long background in judging samples at international wine competitions.) The truth is this bottle didn’t get to me intentionally. I tasted it by coincidence, but the random will be the greatest success, won’t it?
Smell is so deep with raspberry orgy, they had to say me to “hurry” taste because it warm up, but I would have been with fragrance long-long time… I felt as inside my nose became rose colour… as I would sniff its colour. Beautiful! Taste is also deep, and my picture from the bottle is not the best because its colour is more darker! The depth of this rose grabbed me, want to drink it everyday.
