Tasting Notes

A luscious and inviting Tokaji with lifted aromas of oranges, marmalade, apricot and honeycomb. Terrifically complex and aromatic. The palate is just as impressive with a voluptuous, silky mouthfeel and profound flavours of pithy marmalade, rich tangerine and sweet honey. Bracing acidity lift all of this luscious sweetness to make a surprisingly refreshing and irresistible dessert wine.

REGION

Tokaj, Hungary

The noble sweet wines of Hungary from the Tokaji-Hegyalja region are renowned throughout the world and were being produced some 200 years before Sauternes. Of the 6 indigenous varieties officially approved for the production of Tokaji, 60% of all plantings are furmint vines. The grapes are left out on the vines to allow noble rot infection, then a variety of different styles of sweet wines are produced using these shrivelled grapes. Tokaji Aszú is made by the addition of the shrivelled Aszú berries into the base wine to determine the final sweetness. A royal decree in 1757 established a production district in Tokaj, and was therefore the first system of wine appellation in the world.

TASTING NOTES

A zesty, sweet wine that balances golden raisin and dried apricot notes with layers of spice, lemon drop and grapefruit concentrate. The finish sails, with a burst of racy citrus and stone fruit flavours.

TASTING NOTES

This Aleatico is a very unique “meditation wine” with an intense amber color. On the nose it is immediately evident its aromatic structure with dried and candied fruits: apricot, dates and figs. On a second level there come liquorices and coffee notes. On the palate a balsamic note of typical Mediterranean herbs and spices is very predominant, whit sage and...

TASTING NOTES

Brilliant, intense, rich and unctuous, this combines undoubted class with a little flamboyance too. Notes of peach, nectarine and sherbet with enough acidity to counter the sweetness, overlaying a deep, layered core and a mineral streak on the finish. This has you could possibly want from a top Sauternes. Chapeau to Lur-Saluces. Drink 2015-2030+. 18.5
