Tokaji Muscat “Betsek” 2005


Bruce Sanderson, Wine Spectator, 92 points. “There is no mistaking this varietal, with its pungent spice, grape, floral and musk aromas and flavors. They work well in this sweet setting, where the intensity is matched by the lively acidity. Fine length. Drink now through 2022.”

Peter Moser, Falstaff, 94 points, the best late harvest Tokaji in the past 20 years! “Glowing yellow gold. On the nose subtle nuances of nutmeg, a little cumin, anise and marshmallow, a very welcoming bouquet. On the palate juicy, racy, pure yellow muscat fruit, beautiful balance, with convincing length, marked by terroir; spicy finish, very very big presence and great aging potential. So balanced that the residual sugar is perceived no more than a fine touch; a fascinating wine.”

Norbert Csite, Ed. Alc. blog “I was impressed by the aszueszencia from Pendits and I liked the 6 puttonyos aszu from Oremus. But what reallly blew my fuse was the ALANA-TOKAJ Muscat. Attila Nemeth has hands made of gold. This wine is out-of-this-world beautiful, with a cool fruity fragrance, touch of tartness, great momentum on the attack, with loads of flavor, fine minerality, and an unending finish. Simply spectacular.”
