Royal Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2003

Member Review by enotheque:

One of the best balanced of the 5 puttonyos type that I've had. It has the salient characteristics of top styles of white dessert wines: Like a solid Sauternes, it has soft, sweet oak, rich, never cloying fruit sweetness and a lightning bolt of acidity (clementine) bringing everything together.

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded in Hungary in 1989, has become one of the most defining wineries in Tokaj. From the outset, Royal Tokaji decided to concentrate on producing single-vineyard wines, made from the first growth vineyards of Mezes Maly, Nyulaszo, Szt Tamas and Betsek. Acknowledged as one of the region’s top winemakers, Karoly Ats, combines traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range of wines.

Wine Tasting NotesServe slightly chilled (50-54F) in a small port glass or a glass of similar size (there are approximately eight 2-ounce servings per 500ml bottle). Tokaji Aszu wines are wonderful on their own as an aperitif or as a digestif, with cigars and petits fours. These wines also pair well with a wide variety of foods, including foie gras, fruit tarts, chocolate desserts and blue and soft cheeses.
