Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos 2008
Premium sweet/dessert wine
Very good balance and complexity to this sweet wine. Deep, roasted fruit notes are complemented by lively fresh apricot and quince. The wine is luscious yet sprightly with a beautiful blossomy scent and fresh finish. Peach and honey flux on the nose, conterbalanced by lovely earthy nuances.
Wine Spectator 2013: 93/100
Food pairing: "Foie gras recommended. Fruit desserts, cream desserts, even chocolate can be wonderful. It even works with some Chinese, though not with chilli - the spice has to be adjusted to meet the sweetness. Szechuan pepper is good. Havana cigars are splendid. So is the naked sip." - Hugh Johnson
