This sparkling wine (pezsgő in Hungarian) is all furmint, the most noble variety in Hungary and the backbone of most Tokaji, whether dry or sweet. Tokaj native Sarolta Bárdos created her small, family winery in 1999. She is both part of the new generation leading the quality renaissance in Tokaj and one of a long tradition of female winemakers in Hungary, where the men historically worked in the vineyards and the women ran the cellars. Her vineyards are certified organic. Her Pezsgő is made in the traditional (i.e., Champagne) method, with the second fermentation in the bottle and disgorgement. As importer Eric Danch says, this wine "tastes like [dry] Tokaj first and sparkling wine second". There’s a honeyed quality to the fruit and a subtle mintiness. This is a terrific and distinctive aperitivo. It also works with pork dishes and quiches.
