Tokaji Aszu 6 puttonyos 2005


Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 95 points. One of Wine Spectator's Top 100 Best Wines in the World in 2010 by score. “Pure and silky, this dessert wine has a spicy, grassy edge to its honey, apricot, orange candy and passion fruit notes. It's concentrated and remains stylish, thanks to the steely acidity. Terrific length. Best from 2012 through 2035.”

Anders Öhman: “I should emphasize however that even in this excellent quality background one wine stood out as exceptional: the 2005 Alana-Tokaj 6 puttonyos. Its nose was penetrating, generous and nuanced with a slight aromatic character and hints of bitter orange, honey, beeswax, mimosa and peach. On the palate it was simply the quintessence of nectar ... Viscous and velvety, silky with a wonderful concentration; the acidity and sweetness so well balanced and harmoniously integrated. Absolutely the best Tokaji I have ever had and one of the best sweet wines, ever. Phenomenal."

96 points i-winereview: “This golden amber 6 puttonyos Tokaji is a knockout. It has a delightful nose of essence of apricot with honey, hints of tropical fruit, botrytis. The palate is unctuous with purity of flavor, a superb balance of sugar and acid, and a long, pure finish.”
