Heumann wines are usual protagonists of top ratings both in Hungary and internationally – see our latest article with Markus Del Monego MW‘s top scores. And it is not only their famous La Trinità Cabernet Franc that claims the limelight in every vintage. Recently the varietal Merlot 2017 has received 94 points and won the panel tasting in an important wine magazine of Hungary. Debreceni Borozó has 2-4 print issues per year, and since it is distributed all over the country free of charge, it has a large readership and thus influential among the customers. The latest issue came out with a massive panel tasting section evaluating wines in different categories. The tasting of varietal wines made of Bordeaux grapes had the most samples – this is where Heumann Merlot 2017 reached the No1 position.
