2007 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos (500ml)

95 points Wine Spectator: "*Ranked #20, Top 100 Wines of 2013* Ripe, intense and dynamic, with juicy layers of sweet pineapple, apricot and mango puree. Generous yet tightly focused, with an abundance of vanilla bean, mace and other exotic spices that emerge on the long finish." (6/2013) Wine & Spirits: "The D’Aulan family, owners of Alta Vista in Mendoza, bought this estate in 2000. Their 2007 5 puttonyos has the pleasant bitterness of broom honey, and a similar savory sweetness. It’s dark and warming, with lots of smoky, earthy, roasted fruit flavor. For a foie gras terrine."

2012 Királyudvar Furmint Sec (Dry)

Anthony Hwang was born in the Philippines and made his money as a businessman in New York, but it was his passion for wine that led him to buy the Királyudvar estate, a jewel in the Hungarian crown that used to supply wine to the Hapsburgs during the days of the Hungarian Empire. Under Hwang's supervision, and with the help of his partner Noël Pinguet of Vouvray's Domaine Huët, this estate has been revitalized, and the wines being made there today are worthy of Tokaji's legacy.

2008 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Red Label 5 Puttonyos 500ml

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "High-toned aromas of apricot, white raisin and spices. Supersweet but with bracing but harmonious acidity energizing the pure apricot flavor. At once sweet and salty on the back end, boasting superb retention of pure fruit. Showed a slightly edgy quality with 24 hours in the recorked bottle." (6/2014) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Shows some intensity, with aromas and flavors of orange peel, grapefruit, clove and dried apricot. This is vibrant and tangy, offering a long aftertaste that introduces smoke and mineral elements. (Web-2014)" 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of butterscotch, apricot preserves and vanill ...Read More »

2011 Fekete Béla Juhfark Somló Back In Stock!
2011 Fekete Béla Juhfark Somló

92 points Wine & Spirits: "One of the last vintages for Fekete Béla, who’s approaching 90 years old, this is as striking as Somló itself, a mound of volcanic soil rising out of the ocean that once covered it. The wine is monolithic, a liquid stone, the acidity carving deep and fast channels through that stony flavor. There’s really no fruit to speak of; instead, there’s earth, deep, profound and lasting. Decant before serving, and have something rich on hand, like smoked fish." (6/2014) K&L Notes: Somló: Wines of the Volcano Gods - Fekete Béla is 'The Grand Old Man' of Somló. To know his wines...

2005 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

94 points Wine Spectator: "The vivid acidity defines this mineral-laden, sweet Tokaji, which offers a mix of dried citrus, orange peel, antique furniture and smoky mineral flavors wrapped around a tight core. The finish evokes hard citrus candy and baked earth accents. Best from 2012 through 2040. 800 cases made. –BS" (10/2010) K&L Notes: Decanter Magazine gives this unctuos offering four stars, describing it as rich with "almonds, peaches, spices, complex and layered flavours with nicely balanced acidity." (2010 Decanter World Wine Awards)

2008 Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos (500ml)

93 points Wine Spectator: "A ripe, lush sweetie, with bright acidity backing notes of golden raisin, dried apricot and pineapple that linger through the spicy finish. Drink now through 2024. 2,500 cases made. –NW" (6/2013) 90 points Vinous: "Good bright, full gold. Aromas of nut meats, honey, pineapple, coconut and vanillin oak. Fresh and very sweet but not especially complex, with healthy acidity giving early drinkability to the nicely concentrated flavors of pineapple and honeycomb. Finishes with a piquant edge of citrus peel. (Stephen Tanzer)" (6/2014)

2013 Szöke Irsai Oliver

"Originally crossed in 1930, the parents of this native grape are Gewürztraminer and Muscat Ottonel. Not surprisingly, it's incredibly perfumed and floral. That said, its not fat and weighty on the palate like Gewürztraminer can often be and has there’s no detectable residual sugar either. The finish has a mineral, almost saline quality that balances out the Muscat heavy aromatics. And while the style is decidedly reductive, it opens up right away and jumps out of the glass even when chilled. While it can easily stand alone as an aperitif, it pairs beaut... Read More »

2014 Attila Gere Portugieser Villány

"Gere Portugieser is made from vines young and old planted in some of the best vineyards of the estate. After fermentation with wild yeast in stainless steel the wine spends 4 months on 5000 liter barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. An irresistible, fragrant, purple red delight bursting with aromas of wild raspberry and Amarro, Gere Portugieser is devoid of tannin, feather light and takes a chill nicely. Great with stuffed paprika it has the flavor flexibility to pair with something as unexpected as perfumed Indian fare." (Blue Danube Wine Co.)

2011 Spiegelberg "Wedding Night Wine" Somlo

92 points Wine & Spirits: "István Spiegelberg blends Hungary's three greatest white wine grapes—juhfark, hárslevelu, and furmint— for this opulent white. Fermented spontaneously in 500-liter Hungarian oak casks and held in cask for another year or so before bottling, this is rich as marzipan, with hárslevelu's delicate florals playing over top. The light herbal notes and vibrant acidity keep it lifted enough to enjoy on its own, or with fish in a cream sauce." K&L Notes: From the importer: "One of the most unique traditions in Somló is the belief that drinking its wines before copulation would... Read More »

2012 Pfneiszl Kékfrankos Sopron

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Birgit Pfneiszl grows this wine on the slate and sandstone hills just west of Lake Fertö (better known as Neusiedlersee across the border in Austria). Ujra Együtt (meaning “together again”) is a nod to the family’s reunification with the vineyards her grandparents left behind when they fled to Austria, where the family still makes wines under the name Pfneisl (no z). This is farmed organically and vinified in stainless steel without added yeasts. It’s a lean, graceful Kékfrankos, the tart cherry fruit taking on freshness as it sits in the glass, and a co ...Read More »

2009 J&J Eger Wine Company Eged-Hegy Kékfrankos

J and J Eger Wine Company is the product of an unexpected partnership between Canadian born Hungarian and Master Sommelier John Szabo and physician and Eger native and winemaker Dr. János Stumpf. Ultimately it was their shared fascination with the cool North Hungarian terroir of Eger and the exotic mineral rich reds, made from the local variety Kékfrankos (Blaufrankisch). Their tiny 500 case production, more a professionally attended to hobby than a production is based around prime parcels of vineyards located on the steepest most exposed hill overlookin...

2007 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Essencia 375ml (Black Laquer Case)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Essencia from the Royal Tokaji Wine Company, the fifth made in the modern era, is an otherworldly wine that has difficulty fitting into the definition of "wine." My Pavlovian reaction tasting it from bottle was identical to my reaction when I tasted it at the winery in September 2014. You cannot help but laugh at the sheer audacity of its syrupy pour into your glass or preferably on to a spoon. (As an aside, I strongly recommend this traditional method of consuming Essencia. I can only analogize to Asian cuisine tasting better with chopsticks. S ...Read More »

2007 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Szt. Tamás Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

93 points Wine & Spirits: "From a vineyard of red volcanic soils on a slope behind the winery, this is a shade darker than any other vineyard bottling in the 2007 lineup, with firm, pronounced minerality in its flavor. The balance of earthy savor and honeycomb richness makes it particularly succulent, each sip begetting an urge for another even as the flavors stick to the palate." (12/2012) Jancis Robinson: "Hugely intense and broad and carelessly talented sort of thing. So obviously top quality. Just brilliant. Layered and both structured and opulent. (18/20 points)" (12/2012)
