Cuvée is a French wine term derived from cuve, meaning vat or tank and on wine labels it denotes wine of a specific blend or batch. The winemaker creates a special Cuvee blend to showcase different characteristics of their chateau or the terroir that is not usually found in their commercial wine or the wine they make for general consumption. The cuvée-labeled wines will usually be special blends or selected vats of much higher quality.
The Hajos commune is located in southern Hungary on an elevation of the former riverbed of the Danube. 1200 wine cellars testify to a distinctive wine culture which is maintained by the local winegrowers till this day. The tradition was followed with the construction of the family-owned wine cellar “Pieroth Hungaria” in 1998. Since 1999, first-class wines have matured there in high quality steel tanks and barriques.
