Tokaji Aszueszencia 2006


Gold Medal and Trophy for Best Sweet Wine at the 2011 Hong Kong International Wine Competition.

Wine Spectator 94 points, and Wine Spectator's “Hot Wine“ for issue 46, 2011 “Sweet, yet exceptionally bright, with juicy acidity lifting the grapefruit, apricot and passion fruit notes, as layers of honey, date
and spice roll on through the superlong finish. Drink now through 2030.”

Gábor Botond Bányai, Borigo Magazine: 94-96 points (and the highest score at the official Tokaji Premier tasting). "Stunning nose with equally stunning intensity, way beyond the ordinary, with elegant perfume and flower notes, fleshy and fresh. Similar aromatics on the palate. The sweetness – matched well by acidity – is just unbelievable; I have never tasted a wine with this much personality. In the end, the acidity has to catch up a little bit, yet the finish has a creaminess that is out of this world. A completely new paradigm among aszú wines, it will surely stir up the world. Truly extravagant."
