Food Pairings for Tokaji Betsek 6 Puttonyos the Royal Tokaji Wine Company
94 points. The nose is rich with amber incense, rose petal, caramel, and a note of something slightly smoky. There is also a brown butter note, some subtle nuttiness, and a hint of citrus, with pretty strong baked goods and marmalade components. The palate opens luxuriously sweet with honey dripped apricots, flinty stone, and delicate floral notes. There is orange marmalade and apple and cinnamon jam, with a nice intense kitchen spice quality and a dash of pepper. This is a high class wine. It’s dense like honey and fragrant like flowers, it’s perfumed and delicate while at the same time maintaining an almost syrupy viscosity. Extremely lush and smooth with nice density and weight. This wine is liquid luxury. It’s well made, complex, and deep, but its additional weight and intensity may limit what it can be paired up with. I’m extremely impressed by this wine, and for the price I would say that at just under $100, it is a solid buy, however, I think that the 5 Puttonyos offers the same level of quality in a form that is somewhat lighter, easier to pair, and much easier on the pocketbook. The 5 Puttonyos is the bargain, the Betsek is the luxury. Source: What's Worth Drinking: Royal Tokaji Tasting: ( http://whatsworthdrinking.com/2010/05/10/post-13-royal-tokaji-tasting/ )
From one of the largest 1st Growth vineyards around Mad, the 2000 Betsekenjoyed good levels of botrytis. The wine is correspondingly complex with cleanquince acidity providing a bedrock for the classic flavours of honey, driedfruits and Seville oranges. Luscious and yet wonderfully refreshing, an enigmaborn, quite literally, from the mists of time. (Simon Field MW - BBR Buyer)
