Royal Tokaji 2000 Essencia (Tokaji)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $544
This famed Hungarian dessert wine never disappoints. An elegant nose of honey, apricot, butterscotch and spice is followed by a luxuriant, mouth-coating wave of satiny honey and apricot flavors, balanced by citrusy acidity. Complex, perfectly poised, it’s a wine with both pedigree and charm—delicious when sipped alone or paired with a mild Roquefort or fruit.  — S.K.  (5/1/2009)

Royal Tokaji 2003 Essencia Furmint (Tokaji)

  1. $764
Surprisingly subtle, yet maddeningly complex, this is a rare treat to unravel slowly, sip by sip. Sweet and honeyed on the nose with scents of freesia, orange peel and stone fruit, but accented with just a hint of sun-dried hay. The palate is deeply concentrated with undulating waves of honey, beeswax and fruit, but balanced with striking tangerine acidity…  — A.I.  (5/1/2012)

Royal Tokaji 2000 Aszú 5 Puttonyos (Tokaji)

  • Editors' Choice
  1. $32
An amazing wine that is a benchmark for its class. Pure scents of dried apricot, citrus, jasmine and melon are coated with Asian spices, while the mouth is honeyed but nuanced, with flavors of dried spices, apricot marmalade and citrus fruits. What sets this wine apart is its mouthwatering acidity. A blend of grapes from multiple vineyards, this 26,000-case…  — W.E.  (6/1/2006)

A deep, lush nose of honey, marmalade and lemon leads into fresh, bright fruit and acid undertones melded with luscious honey, orange peel and quince. A lingering finish spun with spice adds to the complex, elegant nature. Pair with cheeses, foie gras.  — S.K.  (8/1/2009)

Royal Tokaji 1999 Betsek Aszú 6 Puttonyos (Tokaji)

  1. $67
Made with 50% Furmint, 45% Háslevelu and 5% Muscat, this vintage weathered two hailstorms during the summer. The surviving grapes benefited from greater concentration, leading to a more intense wine. Already developing toffee and coffee notes, this wine still shows plenty of citrus, honey, dried apricot and fig, with a hint of nuttiness on the nose. Syrupy and…  — W.E.  (6/1/2006)

Royal Tokaji 2007 Red Label Aszú 5 Puttonyos (Tokaji)

  1. $43
Ebulliently floral on the nose, this decadently creamy Tokaji bursts with characteristic honey, peach preserve and dried fig sweetness. A streak of citrusy acidity adds balance, while subtle hints of caramelized sugar and tea leaves add twists to the long, honey-kissed finish.  — A.I.  (5/1/2012)

Royal Tokaji 2007 Betsek Aszú 6 Puttonyos (Tokaji)

  1. $118
Opulent and elegant, this brilliant deep-gold Tokaji has aromas of vanilla caramel, crème brûlée and candied apricot. On the palate, crisp acidity clears the path for flavors of preserved apricot and candied apple. It’s full and round in the mouth, and delightful on its own or served with cheese.  — J.J.  (4/1/2014)
