Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 1993 Tokaji Aszu 6 Puttonyos is a blend of 60% Furmint, 10% Zéta and 30% Hárslevelu, the first vintage where the estate had some control over production, though much of the grapes were purchased unlike nowadays. I last tasted this debut in 2013, though this bottle was not quite at the same level. It has a deep cherry wood appearance in the glass. The nose is pleasant with cola, mint and earl grey and wild mushroom infusing the honeyed fruit, a little fatigued since I last tasted it but still pleasant. The palate is perhaps more interesting than pleasurable, though that is overshadowed by the significance of this maiden vintage in post-communist Hungary and what it portended. The fruit has dried out a little and there is now some bitterness towards the marmalade and quince-led finish, an almost latté character on the aftertaste. I suspect that there might be some bottle variation given the circumstances in which this wine was made. Tasted September 2016.
