A few bottles that jumped out at me at Budapest airport last week. Any thoughts, suggestions, notes, and/or observations would be most graciously appreciated.
- Bock Villanyi Royal Cuvee 2004
- Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Aszu Eszencia 2000
- Royal Tokaji 5 Puttonyos 2003
I’ve read lots of ‘wows’ about this bottle from Dereszla. According to Wine Spectator, only 415 cases were produced, and in their June 2004 review (94 pts) wrote that it’ll last nicely through 2025. (I’m extremely patient, but that’s really pushing it.)
The Bock is a cab sav, cab franc, merlot and pinot noir blend from the southern Villanyi region. The Royal I knew very little about.
