Professional Wine Reviews for Kiralyudvar Tokaji 6 Puttonyos Aszu Lapis 2006

Rated 98 by Wine Advocate
The 2006 Tokaji Aszú Lapis 6 Puttonyos is a pure Furmint bottled with 10% alcohol and 239 grams of residual sugar (total acidity: 11.4 grams per liter, pH: 3.17). Deep, ripe, rich and concentrated on the nose, it displays aromas of bright green and orange tea, porcini, raisin and dried apricot and some minty notes intermixed with honey scents. This is a highly delicate, dense, juicy, beautifully concentrated, piquant and persistent Tokaji with enormous finesse and length. There is so much tension, vitality and concentration here, and it's combined with lush and charmingly generous fruit as well as lots of salt and great finesse that makes this noble sweet wine light-footed and soaring. This is an exceptional sweet wine that can compete with the very best on planet wine. And it's not yet finished. The 2016 is still on the rise and will improve further. It's the kind of sweet wine that you can't stop drinking without punishing yourself.

Winery Kiralyudvar

Country: Hungary

Hungary has several important wine producing regions, all of which benefit from the mineral rich soils which are fed by the mighty Danube and Tisza rivers, or are located on the banks of Lake Balaton, Europe's largest lake. The climate of Hungary is ideal for viticulture – long, blazingly hot summers followed by balmy autumns and late winters, and wineries have been making the country's unique produce for over a thousand years, with many wine regions having been in use since the Roman times. Today, Hungary is mostly known for its sweet white wines, most notably from the Tokaj region, where the grapes are given over to noble rot which intensifies the sugars and flavors, and results in astonishing wines of exceptional character and aroma.
