Member Review by Dennis Lim:

Nectar on the nose and taste. Yet not too overwhelmingly sweet. Impressive!

500 ml bottle The Iconic and esteemed dessert wine, Tokaji Aszu over the centuries has satisfied the sweet tooths of Tsars, Emperors and Kings. Disznoko is an historic estate, declared first class in the 1772 classification. In 1992 it was purchased by a French winery group that owns several Classified Bordeaux Chateaux. It's now a state of the art wine making facility with some of the best vineyards in Eastern Europe. This wine is made from 60% Furmint, 30% Harslevelu and 10% Zeta. The aszú grapes (affected by noble rot and shriveled on the vine) are collected manually one by one over the course of several vineyard passes in a total of 5 wooden hods and poured into a vat of must wine, according to the method established in the 17th century. After a maceration of several hours, the collected liquid is racked into barrels where it ferments slowly before being aged 2 years in oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored this 96 points saying "Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2008 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 70% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 10% Hárslevelu, the maceration mostly with finished wine. This has an exceptional bouquet: Satsuma and mandarin, quince and marmalade, wonderful mineralite and tension. The palate is very well balanced with mandarin, lime, orange rind and a touch of quince. This is edgy, a more unpredictable yet compelling Tokaji from Disznoko with a very long and sustained finish. This comes highly recommended—an outstanding 5 Puttonyos. Tasted September 2016." Limited!

The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji — a little ingenue — is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now–2035+.

A brilliant deep-gold color in the glass, this alluring Tokaji draws you in with heady aromas of dried pear, honeyed apricot and candied orange peel, then delivers in a big way with full-bodied roundness and flavors of dried apricot, pear compote and vanilla custard. Complex and extremely elegant, it has great balance of sweetness and acidity.



<p>From North Hungary, this dessert wine is aged in oak barrels in the historic caves of the region. &nbsp;It's well-balanced with moderate acidity, followed by a peach aftertaste.</p>
