Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate
In a June, 2009 Hedonist's Gazette article on erobertparker.com, Bob Parker himself had this to say about this astounding wine: We finished with a perfect wine, the 1993 Ch√Ęteau Pajzos Esszencia from Hungary. It looked like motor oil, but the wine possessed such great acidity that everything was fresh, vibrant, and well-balanced. Marmalade, a liqueur of nuts, fruitcake, plum, and caramelized tropical fruit characteristics are all present in this deep amber-colored wine. Incredibly intoxicating from an aromatic point of view, this vibrant, well-focused, amazing wine proves the greatness of the finest wines of Tokaji.

One of the world's finest dessert wines. Sensational, ultrasweet Tokay, yet with a lovely citrus underpinning that keeps it from being heavy. Like melted honey, with lime and pineapple, this is one of those marvelous gems that makes you swoon in delight. Tempting now into the 21st century. A collector's item to drink in small portions, by itself, to celebrate life.
 

Additional Information

Region :
Hungary
Winemaking has been part of Hungarian culture for centuries, but one wine is responsible for putting Hungarian wines on the map: Tokaji, or Tokay. A sweet botrytised wine made from the Furmint grape, Tokaji was the impetus for a royal decree creating the first appellation control, established in 1730. The historic Tokaj-Hegyalja wine region was divided between Hungary and Czechoslovakia in 1920, and disputes over use of the name Tokaji have ensued ever since. View all our items from Hungary
