Royal Tokaji
Red Label, 5 Puttonyos, Tokaj – 2000

Santé Magazine
Recommended

“Amber-colored with a nose of crystallized orange peel. Palate is sweet and unctuous but not at all cloying, developing complexity after the initial citrus rush and finishes very long and somewhat peachy.”

“…a prime example of New Zealand's limitless potential for this grape. The '05 Village is beautifully structured, rich and mouth watering, and delivers complex aromas of baked apple, pear and hazelnut.”

“excellent quality, with lovely toasted-oat notes framing pear, melon and citrus flavors. It’s full-bodied and long, with some youthful oaky notes still showing on the finish.”

“Already developing toffee and coffee notes, this wine still shows plenty of citrus, honey, dried apricot and fig, with a hint of nuttiness on the nose. Syrupy and round, the citrusy acids maintain a beautiful harmony.”

“An amazing wine that is a benchmark for its class. Pure scents of dried apricot, citrus, jasmine and melon are coated with Asian spices, while the mouth is honeyed but nuanced, with flavors of dried spices, apricot marmalade and citrus fruits....”

“This offers bushels of citrus, from lemon to orange marmalade. It’s sweet yet fresh, bold yet refined, and ought to gain in complexity over the next decade.”

“Brilliant, zingy and ultimately subtle, with layers of stony, minerally character around a lively core of pineapple, lime and green apple flavors, lingering effortlessly on the bracingly tart finish. Has miles to go. Drink now through 2014.”

Essencia, Tokaj – 1999

Decanter
Best Dessert Wine

“One hundred kilos of botrytised grapes are needed to produce just 1 litre of Essencia, a wine that, at 600g/l of sugar, has taken six years to reach 2.9% alc, retaining an uplifting 18g/l of acidity...this has to be experienced to be believed.”

“How about something sweet for Valentine's Day? The Royal Tokaji Red Label from Hungary fits that bill. This classic dessert wine tastes of oranges, figs and citrus peel, with a hint of honey in the finish. It's delicious....”

“Perfectly integrated aromas of apricot preserves, lemon peel, cherry... are lightly honeyed. Very intense, exquisitely balanced flavors of lemon, buttered toast, beer and malt have lots of aged qualities but retain an unyielding freshness....”

“Highly stylized aroma of apple, banana, honey and malt. Flavors of apple, orange peel, butter and yeast are just unique. Freshens up the close.”

“Bright gold. Sweet, creamy, fresh, faintly yeasty notes … Clean and pure, with exotic, fresh peach-like fruit; rich but very tangy. Delicious to drink now.”

Best of Year Issue

“Compared to the winery’s ’99 Reserve, with which it was co-released, this bubbly is slightly sweeter, softer and smoother. It’s a fancy wine, drinkable now with crab cakes or smoked salmon or on its own, of course. Chardonnay-based, the wine possesses a light elegance and very great finesse. But it should age well over the next ten years.”

Best of Year Issue

“For starters, this is a very fine wine, architecturally clean, bone dry and strong in acids. It’s too young to fully enjoy now, though, all raw elbows and yeast. If you don’t mind that edgy sharpness, try it as an aperitif, but it will benefit from five years or longer in the cellar.”

Chicago Tribune
"3 corkscrews"

“Hail the Cabs of 2002”

“From Napa’s Diamond Mountain District, this wine was the “bargain pour” of the tasting. Very friendly for a big wine, it offered a heady floral and berry nose and a vivid ruby color. A touch of black pepper, a whiff of anise and plenty of tobacco and leathery notes were hallmarks.”
