Grand Bleu 2011

 Kekfrankos from the heavens
$70.00 per Bottle
 
This 100% Kékfrankos wine originates from the top of our Grand Cru Nagy Eged vineyard. Its dense color is accompanied by concentrated aromas of nutmeg, allspice, black cherry and tobacco. These characteristics linger on the palate, exhibiting flavors of plum, black cherry and plain chocolate, fulfilled with balanced acids and silky tannins. Our Grand Bleu rewards us with a long and really refined finish that lingers on the palate. This wine will age beautifully in the bottle for many years to come and only 1877 bottles were made from this fourth vintage of Kekfrankos from Nagy Eged, so get yours before it is gone!

This great vintage has scored the following ratings:
91 point rating from the Wine Enthusiast
