Hungarian red wines

Le Bouchon Vinothek has the largest range of Hungarian red wines in Switzerland. The climatic conditions of Hungary (Central European continental climate with hot summers and cold winters with about 2,000 hours of sunshine annually) are ideal for the production of fruity, light red wines, these red wines are mainly made from Kékfrankos, Kadarka, Zweigelt and Portugieser varieties. The rich, elegant, not too tannic wines can also beautifully express the character of the place of production. The Hungarian red wine based on the beautiful acidity Blue Franconian, bottled under the name of Egri Bikavér (Eger Bull's Blood) in Eger and under the name of Szekszárdi Bikavér (Szekszard Bull's Blood) in Szekszárd, enjoys great popularity. The main production area of the thick-skinned blue grape varieties containing much more tannins is the Szekszárd and Villány area in Southern Hungary. Here, due to the sub-Mediterranean climate, these grape varieties ripen perfectly, and Cabernet Franc even found his second home in Villány. The Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah produced here are also of outstanding international quality. These Hungarian red wines from tannin-rich grape varieties are among the longest maturing wines in the world.
