Essencia, Tokaj – 2007

Vinous
100 Points

The 2007 Essencia is the fifth made in the modern era, and it continues to defy the definition of wine. It gloops onto the spoon, the best way to consume this astonishing elixir. The palate electrifies the senses with almost overwhelming sweetness of apricot, Japanese plum and marmalade, while the acidity miraculously keeps everything on an even keel – not easy to do with a payload of 560gm/L residual sugar! Profound and probably destined to last for eternity. You can even drive home afterwards thanks to the 1.65% alcohol. Tasted at a private dinner in Hong Kong.

“…You cannot help but laugh at the sheer audacity of its syrupy pour into your glass or preferably on to a spoon…the bouquet leaves you giddy…a ridiculous, extraordinary, absurd, profound and downright delicious elixir…It is truly, truly magical.”
