Grand Bleu 2017

The refined cousin of our Blues Kékfrankos, our 100% Kékfrankos Grand Bleu wine hails from our limestone terroir, the Grand Cru Nagy-Eged Hill and the highest vineyard in Hungary. Expect unique minerality, complexity, and sophisticated urbanity. Grand notes of plum, cherry, chocolate, tobacco, and nutmeg keep getting grander with age. Less than 3,000 bottles of this 100% Kékfrankos wine were produced. Get one while you can to enjoy now and grab another to savor in a few years.

Tasting Notes

Concentrated aromas of nutmeg, allspice, black cherry, and tobacco. Flavors of plum, black cherry, and chocolate, which are tied together by balanced acidity and silky tannins.

Vineyard Notes

Nagy Eged is a Grand Cru terroir and the region's highest vineyard at 1500 feet. The soil here is primarily limestone and is steeply sloped, which varies drastically from all other vineyards in the area. Here a southern exposure and sparse soils create concentrated, mineral-rich wines worthy of lengthy cellar aging.


Serves well with bigger, more complex dishes, mainly meat (beef, pork, lamb) - or chicken with a hearty sauce.
