Our neighbour picked up a bottle while in Macau, and he decided to try with us. We all admitted to being "virgins" of Tokaji Dry white wines of any producer, let alone this particular drop. A fairly transparent greenish-yellow. We were pleasantly shocked with the aromas of cloves, green herbs and a touch of peppermint. Dry citrus flavours with a fairly short finish. We found after approximately one hour the freshness and vibrancy died off...oh the promise of the luvly lady faded as the night ebbed into, well, the later night :-( We think a very nice, definitely interesting, easy sipping sort of dry white...always up for the difference and at this QPR...wow!!! We intend to pickup a few...but we do not see much ageing potential in the wine so we are hoping for younger vintages.
Un vin au style légèrement oxydatif qui m'a semblé manquer de définition. Une succession de goûts hétéroclites donnent au final une impression brouillonne. Léger manque d'acidité qui n'aide pas en rendant la bouche molle et un peu lourde. A été plus apprécié par d'autres convives que moi. Sans être un désastre, je ne peux vraiment pas parler d'un coup de cœur de mon côté... J'avais par-contre bien aimé le 2009.
Yellow plum, ripe pear and apricots on the nose. Honey, wax, wool and almonds. Pepper, ground coriander and lime blossom. Dry, fruity and quite round. The acidity slyly rises towards the end of the palate. Oiliness, spices, bitter notes and minerally sensations. All round again in the aftertaste. Almonds and wool. Very clearly oxidated character. Most probably due to oxidative wine making. And I like that. The acidity could be more pronounced just as it has been with some of the previous vintages. But I do like this wine.
