TASTING NOTES

"The 2008 Tokaji Aszú Mézes Mály 6-Puttonyos has a very seductive, pure bouquet with lifted orange essence, mango and apricot scents that are beautifully defined, becoming headier in the glass. The palate has a viscous opening that is perfectly offset by the acidity. This is so pure and refined, although part of me yearned for more edginess, perhaps an oxidative tincture to lend another dimension. Still, this is an utterly seductive Tokaji, though the 2007 has the upper hand at the moment." Neal Martin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #210

"Bright orange-bronze. Apricot aroma complicated by mocha, toffee and a sherry-like yeasty nuttiness. The sweetest and most glyceral of this trio of 2008 aszú bottlings, with strong apricot nectar fruit joined by a nutty quality. No shortage of energy here. Quite long but this will need more time in bottle to express itself. The densest and chewiest of these wines, showing excellent integrated acidity to support a slow evolution in bottle."

"Round and charming. Easy to see the honey element. Very fresh. Hugh's favourite. Broad and round, even almost syrupy in texture. Lightly floral and with great smoothness and relatively low acid." JancisRobinson.com
