The wine pours a deep brown color, almost like that of a prune juice with much sediment and long legs. On the nose, the wine exhibits a concentrated bouquet of honeysuckle, wheat grass, prunes, preserved plums, sweet crepes and creme brulee. On the palate, the wine has a structure dominated by fruit. Prunes dominate the core, supported by notes of smoke, honey, lemon custard and cinnamon. There is much residual sugar along with the acidity, which keeps the wine light and fresh. Finish is quite long and dominated by the flavor of prunes. My first tokaji and definitely an enjoyable experience. Decent wine indeed to finish a meal.
Darkening redish brown, almost walnut on the nose, complex flavors but the nuttiness stood out. Tiny amounts accompanied desert which was a good match, desert was a french pastry combo with blueberries and strawberries.

(Royal Tokay 5 Puttonyos) A deep and burnished golden-orange colour. Plenty of sweet, honeyed, botrytis and quince aromas, together with some prominent volatile acidity, a feature of the 1995 from this producer also. On the palate, orange marmalade sits with all the other flavours, wrapped in a hedonistic texture with sufficient acidity. There's a harsh note related to that VA.
