    The 2008 Betsek 6 Puttonyos Aszú 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.

Producer

Royal Tokaji Wine Company

The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded by Hugh Johnson in Hungary in 1990, has established itself as one of the top producers in the region. Their vineyards are a patchwork reminiscent of the Cote d'Or and include five single vineyard sites (Szent Tamás, Nyulászó, Betsek, Mézes Mály and Birsalmás ), first delimited and classified in 1733. They are ideally positioned between two rivers for the development of noble rot and the wines mature in the cool of the company's 13th century cellars.
