2005 Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos
- > Tokaji
Community Tasting Notes 7
April 19, 2014 - Try as hard as we might we still did not manage to make it through 1.5 liters of this Tokaji.
Smokin' acidity right now but the sweetness carries it. A very clean style. I'd hold off drinking for a decade.

April 12, 2014 - Napa Valley Tour; 4/11/2014-4/15/2014 (French Laundry,Meadowood,Colgin,Araujo,Harlan....): Tasted single blind as part of a challenge/game with the sommelier at the FL.
Quite a lot of depth here that led us believe this was Sauternes from a light year. Good, elegant and balanced, good ripe fruits, light botrytis and overall a solid desert wine. We should have gotten this one right! 91

April 5, 2014 - The 2005 Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos is dark orange gold in colour with a nose of pronounced marmalade, dried orange peels, dried apricots and nectarine. On the palate, the wine enters with flavours of marmalade before progressing to dried fruit notes. Very pleasant and pleasurable and marks a perfect of every meal indeed. There's a good acidity that gives the wine a fresh finish instead of a lingering sweetness that might be too mouth coating. Nice medium (+) finish. High quality 5 puttonyos indeed.
January 13, 2014 - WSET Level 3; 1/13/2014-1/17/2014 (WSET School, London): Massive nose of marmalade, raisins, apricot, almond.
Sweet balanced with raging acidity. Pronounced flavors of dried stone fruit and honey.
December 4, 2013 - Vega Sicilia Wines by Xavier Ausas (Enoteca Barolo - Madrid): Lovely nose. Complex, ripe apricots
Acidity and sweet in perfect harmony.
Nice finish. Needs a little time yet but no too much.
Maravillosa nariz. Compleja, con albaricoques maduros.
Acidez y dulzor perfectamente integrados.
Bello final. Necesita algo de tiempo, no mucho.
