Bodri is one of the bigger names (and bigger producers) of Szekszárd. They had an entry level kékfrankos which often over-delivered regarding value, and I followed it through many vintages. It seems to be gone now and I guess this “Tradíció” titled one is the successor. As it turns out, it’s not just the label which has changed: it’s not the pure and bright rendition anymore.
The Brouilly 2019 last time was not my favourite wine from Richard Rottiers, but the current Moulin-á-Vent (2021) is again outstanding, the kind of wine which makes me a fan and follower of this top Beaujolais producer.
I rarely buy low SO2 wines anymore as there’s a lot I don’t like about this wine trend, but La Dilettante amazed me ten years ago so I wanted to give it a try. Well, I’m not the same wine lover as back then…
A bit of nostalgia, this wine was available in Hungary many years ago, imported by Bortársaság. Then supply discontinued, sadly, but I spot it in the Vinatis webshop when ordering some Loire reds, so here we are.
Kadarka is difficult to grow which makes it expensive to produce, and there isn’t much of it planted. So to see this wine for just above 3 euros on shelves is a shame – a sign of hard times wine growers face these days.
