About the Producer
Chateau Pajzos is one of the great producers in Tokaj, Hungary. The estate was classified as a `First Growth` in 1772 and its sweet wines have been enjoyed by Monarchs and Emperors for centuries, Louis XV of France famously called Tokaji `Wine of Kings, King of Wines`. In 1991, the Pajzos estate was bought by Jean-Louis Laborde who also owns the esteemed Chateau Clinet in Pomerol, Bordeaux.
About the Region
The Tokaji wine region is in the north east of Hungary, towards the borders of Slovakia and Ukraine. The region is centred around the confluence of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers, with the vineyards planted on the south and southwest slopes above. The rising mists from the rivers in autumn encourage the onset of `noble rot` in the grapes, producing one of the great and most distinct sweet wines of the world.
