Mézes Mály near Tarcal is one of the two Great First Growths in Tokaj. 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’. 11 hectares of Mezes Maly are jointly owned by Royal Tokaji and Hugh Johnson. The French pioneering wine writer André Jullien (1766-1832), 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."
