Aromas of marzipan, walnut, bitter almond, caramel, coffee, orange oil. Big body, oily structure, elegant, quality oxidative notes, caramel, nuts, vibrant acidity, overripe citrus, not distracting, blended with secondary flavours and aromas from ageing, which after a long rest in bottle, have come together in beautiful harmony. The alcohol is pleasantly warming on the finish. A dense weave, a beautiful lot with an infinitely long finish, with grillage, tobacco and a tiny bit of candy sugar on the finish. It can be served on its own as a dessert from a large cup, slightly over-cooled, after a short aeration, before the coffee is consumed. It is a classic pairing with foie gras in an aszú sauce with sweet vegetables. Drunk with Cuban cigars (Cohiba robusta, Partagas), it is the most valuable COGNAC-inducing drink... among the TOP 100 wines of Hungary!

Characteristics
Its dry wines boast high acidity, great complexity, excellent structure and characteristic aromatics. They may be steely yet elegant in cooler vintages. Dry wines produced from ripe, but not overripe, grapes, harvested at full maturity, without any botrytised berries, can command high prices and have decades of ageing potential. They can be made from any of the permitted Tokaj varieties, but Furmint or Hárslevelű are the most common, followed by Sárgamuskotály.Sweet wines can deliver a wonderful sensory experience, depending on the sugar and dry extract content.Late-harvested sweet wines can be made good quality in the right vintages, but they are usually made from grapes which are either not botrytised or just have a touch of botrytis. Botrytis also concentrates the sugar and acidity in the grapes, so Tokaj sweet wines are well-balanced and lively and retain their fruitiness for a long time. Tokaj’s sweet wines are not dessert wines but rather balanced, often terroir wines, which happen to contain residual sugar.
