Mézes Mály

„Honeypot“ Great First Growth

Situated on loess soil on a south facing slope, Mézes Mály near Tarcal was formerly owned by the Imperial family. Today, 11 hectares of the vineyard are jointly owned by Hugh Johnson and the Royal Tokaji Wine Company, another 13 hectares are owned by the Gróf Degenfeld Winery. In the text of the 1700 classification this vineyard stands out as the very finest - described as Pro Mensa Caesaris Primus Haberi - „to be the first choice at the Royal table“. Mézes Mály's characteristics are based around its translation as „honey pot“. Its incredibly long and exquisitely balanced aromas and flavours combine the very essence of Aszú wines. The French pioneering wine writer André Jullien (1766-1832), slightly exaggerating, wrote in 1816 in his „Topographie de Tous Les Vignobles Connus“ about this vineyard: „The wine of the cru of the mountain Mezes-Malé does not enter commerce; it is destined in its totality for the caves of the Emperor and those of some magnates who posses some vineyards there.“
