1993 Château Pajzos Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos (500ml)

SKU #1048102 90 points Wine Spectator

 This honeyed, late-harvest white offers a lush, pillowy texture and rich flavors of dried apricots, toffee and vanilla. It's very sweet, yet quite fresh and still lively. Delicious now, it should age easily until 2020.  (12/ 1997)

I love Tokaji Aszu. It is one of my favorite dessert wines and, in general, offers great value for the price by comparison to other top dessert-style wines like Sauternes. This bottling from Chateau Pajzos is full-bodied and concentrated, and though very high in residual sugar, is perceptibly less sweet due to remarkably high acidity - it finishes fresh. Glazed peach and honey overflow from the nose, conterbalanced by lovely earthy nuances. Serve chilled and sip slowly.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
