Royal Tokaji Wine Co. Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos Red Label 2000
sweet and refined dessert wine. For several centuries, Tokaj wines were the natural accompaniment to the delicacies served at the great Royal European courts who had selected it for its exceptional quality and glorious history. Louis XIV, who loved this nectar, called it "the Wine of Kings and the King of Wines", "Vinum Regum Rex Vinorum". Tokaj Aszu travelled around the world and inspired the most celebrated authors such as Voltaire, Goethe and Rabelais... The vinification has been made in the oxydated style during the years of communism. Actually, the trend is to use a more reductive style, which gives to the wines a very fine and elegant bouquet and which respects the old tradition of Tokaj Hegyalja. Size: 500ml Type: Wine Country: HUNGARY Region: North East Sub-Region: Tokaj-Hegyalja Vineyard/Appellation: Winery: Tokaji Pairing/Theme: Foie Gras Varietal: Furmint
A glorious example of Tokaji, and it wont break the bank. The finish lasts a good 15+ minutes and reminds me of Granny Smith apple pie. Seek this out!
Delicious honey and awesome taste. Great dessert wine.
