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

78 % Furmint, 22 % Hárslevelű from the single vineyard Lapis on volcanic soil, grey and brown clay and white ryolite tuff at an altitude of up to 230 metres. Spontaneous fermentation in 500-litre Hungarian oak wooden fermenters. Aging for 28 months in 2,250-liter Hungarian oak barrels. For a 6 Puttonyos, six vats of noble rotten berries of 22 kilos each are added to 136.5 litres of base wine. After aging in oak barrels, a 6 Puttonyos matures for at least six more years before it goes on sale.

Color

Dark amber

Nose

The dense and very complex nose of this 6 Puttonys from the best site of the winery opens in an aromatic range that alternates between caramel, baked apple, fresh and dried apricots, honey, malt and peach melba and is rounded off by the finest oriental spices such as allspice, clove, cinnamon, by incense, earthy and peaty notes and beeswax. The Lapis smells of a botrytis in a just perfect, noble and pure form.

Palate

On the palate, the still young Sechs-Pütter is decidedly creamy and balanced, while being rich and finely textured. Nuts, honey, apricot and red apple combine with some blossom and nutmeg aromas, black tea and ripe lemon, even with some bergamot and a fine acidity, which is still almost a little shy in this early stage the wine is in, yet always remains present. A Tokaji Aszú needs time. Accordingly, this is an investment in an extremely profound and complex Tokaji Aszú, whose real hour is yet to come, but where the greatness is already visible, especially if you open it a few days before enjoying and give it some air.

Food recommendations by Christoph Raffelt

  • Goose liver parfait
  • Salty, strong and slightly creamy blue cheeses such as Roquefort and Stilton
  • In a quiet atmosphere with leisure, just like that, or perhaps with a piece of fruitcake.
