    December 11, 2020 - Concentrated golden yellow color with a slightly developed ochre hue. Quite intense, sweet and somewhat waxy nose with vibrant aromas of acacia honey, beeswax, some orange marmalade, light dried apricot tones, a little bit of canned pineapple and a hint of saffron - and, with some air, a lifted touch of nail polish VA. The wine is broad, sweet and quite full-bodied on the palate with concentrated flavors of apple jam, canned pineapple, some dried exotic fruits, light stony mineral tones, a little bit of steely minerality, sweet hints of orange marmalade and candied ginger and a touch of beeswax. The overall feel is definitely sweet, but perhaps not as sweet as you'd expect for a 5 Puttonyos. At first the acidity felt rather modest, but slowly the incisive acidity managed to cut through the residual sugar, further toning the residual sugar down. The finish is long, sweet and firm with bright acidity. Quite concentrated flavors of dried apricots and ripe pineapple, steely and slightly saline mineral tones, some sweet notes of honeycomb and orange marmalade, light nuances of sultana, a hint of mushroomy botrytis and a lifted touch of nail polish VA.

    A classically built, fine and harmonious Tokaji that feels still very youthful for its 12 years of age. There are some understated nuances of age, but the overall feel is that of a very young wine, showing remarkable intensity and purity of fruit without any tertiary qualities. I'd say the wine feels slightly drier than you typical Aszú 5 Puttonyos, but nothing outside what would be acceptable. The wine is very tasty and rewarding right now, but will continue to improve for years - decades, even - more. Excellent stuff. How can you not love this?

    November 21, 2020 - Opened 11 months ago using corawine. Feared that it had became totally flat after 11 months under the layer of gas. Not true: still full of flames- long and lasting sweetness combined with an almost perfect balancing acidity. Super solid and close to a wow wine:)

    November 12, 2020 - An outstanding example of a Tokaj wine. Medium to deep gold. In the nose, pronounced with dried apricot, orange, baked yellow apple, banana, mango, passion fruit, orange marmalade, honey, vanilla, smoke, espresso. On the palate, pronounced with orange, vanilla, and mango. Sweet, high acidity, medium alcohol, full body. Long finish
