After years spent experimenting with barrels, Gergő Böjt’s new Bikavér was mainly built on a Kádár barrel-aged Kékfrankos base, spiced up by Trust barrel-aged Cabernet, Blauburger and Zweigelt. An exciting, spicy Bika (i.e. Bull) with a cool character, forest fruit and subtle oakiness due to the 13 months of barrel ageing. Also rounded out for half a year in the bottle. 

A wine for gastronomy.

Kékfrankos, Cabernet, Blauburger and Zweigelt. Arguably it tastes rather like a Cabernet blend than a Bikavér, but the quality is just convincing. A bit oaky, too, though it looks surprisingly young and unsettled. Dark fruited, ripe on the nose, a fresh basil note adding a twist, then almost Pinot-like, delicate on the palate, with good acidity and hitting only 13% alcohol. There is depth to it’s flavor. It’s quite refined and drinks well. The modern face of Eger reds. Not ready yet and has a bright future, hold.”

Rating: very good wine, 88-89 points.
