1995 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Aszú Essencia 500ml
94 points Wine Spectator: "Thick and dense yet never heavy, with aromas that flit from floral and vegetal to caramel and smoke and back again. There's noticeable sweetness matched by a brisk acidity that need time to integrate. Fine, lingering finish. Seems monolithic today, so be patient. Best from 2003 through 2015." 100 cases imported. –BS (Oct 31, 2001) Aszu Essencia is a blend of Nyulaszo and St Tamas vineyards. By definition, Aszu Essencia has a residual sugar level of more than 180 grams per litre and is thus above a 6 puttonyos designation. Its characteristics are incredible sumptuousness and richness balanced with apple and quince acidity. Aszu Essencia is bottled in a hand crafted replica of an 18th century bottle.
