“Aged, mature, Chardonnay of this quality at this price was previously thought impossible to find. The kind of wine that makes the rest of the winemakers shudder in fear and run to their mothers blubbing. Smells of note; the best apple pie ever witnessed, walnuts, toasted oats, honeysuckle flowers, lemon zest. Avoid a mistake and buy this.”

rivers that dissect the region, the Bodrog. Being close to the Bodrog the microclimate is a couple of degrees cooler than in the valley. The soil is a rich volcanic rhyolite containing crystalline fragments that foster wines with firm character.Chateau Megyer has 83 hectares.
