Királyudvar

Those who think of Tokaji may first have images of the Habsburg court in mind and stories of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy. Hardly any other wine is as closely associated with the royal courts and their prestige as Tokaji. Accordingly, the noble sweet wines have always been "the wine of kings and the king of wines", as Louis XIV is said to have described it. One of the houses that supplied the Hungarian court with wines very early on is Királyudvar, which means "the court of kings". In the golden age of Tokaji from the 16th to the 18th century, Királyudvar's Tokaji Aszú were among the most famous in the world.

Wine information

70 % Furmint, 30 % Hárslevelű from different sites on volcanic soil, such as white ryolite tuff. For a 6 Puttonyos, six vats of noble rot berries of 22 kilos each are added to 136.5 litres of base wine. After ageing in oak barrels, a 6 Puttonyos matures for at least another six years before it is sold.

Color

Medium amber with orange reflections

Nose

A Tokaji Aszù from the picture book with the scent of slightly creamy caramel, of pineapple and apricots in fresh as well as in dried form. A ripe pear quince, cinnamon, allspice, light tobacco and a freshly opened glass of orange marmalade join in. A perfectly harvested clear botrytis shows here.

Palate

On the palate, the 6 Puttonyos has exactly the right acidity to keep the nearly 200 grams of sweetness in check. The Aszù is fantastically creamy and swirls the complex stone fruit and quince flavors with black tea, pineapple, banana, caramel, butterscotch and Old English orange marmalade. Great palate cinema for now and the next decades!
