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 was once considered one of the world's leading wine countries, with their distinctive and flavorful wines being the favorites of Europe's royal families until the early 20th century and the fall of the dual monarchy of Austria-Hungary. The Soviet Union all but obliterated Hungary's wine traditions, replacing their unique produce with the sweet and characterless red wines the country is still often associated with, yet thankfully, the past twenty five years has seen an impressive return to form. All over the historic Tokaj region, craftsmen and master vintners are using the grape varietals which thrive on the hillsides in the hot summers and long autumns to once again produce the amazingly flavored Tokaji wines – a wine made by allowing the grapes to wither on the vine, thus concentrating the sugars and producing remarkable flavors and aromas of marzipan, dried fruits, pear and candied peel.
