Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Tokaji Aszu Betsek 6-Puttonyos is another fabulous 2008 to add to the Royal Tokaji Company's roster. The nose is as clean as a whistle: beautifully delineated with candied orange peel, honeysuckle and resinous scents, the latter becoming more accentuated with about 20 minutes aeration. The palate is underpinned by the razor-sharp acidity that lends this Tokaji so much freshness and vitality. It is a feisty little thing like the 2007, but the 2008 displays even better control and focus. The tangy marmalade-infused finish rivets you to the spot, and those spicy white pepper notes just add another level to an already superb Tokaji. Throw out the Sauternes! This brilliant Tokaji will last decades, not years.

Wine Spectator Very sweet, this is offset by bracing acidity, exuding apricot, pear, orange and mineral flavors. Amazingly intense given the light-weight, vivid frame. The orange and apricot finish echoes a stony note, displaying exceptional acidity and power. Drink now through 2024. 394 cases made.
