„Like orange and apricot slowly caramelized in butter; honey rich, elegant and beautifully balanced.“
Eric Asimov, New York Times,
Dec. 2006

„This is almost entirely furmint. Musky, orchid florality and an aroma of honey. Creamy and honeyed, with exotic inner-mouth florality. The whole wine is supercharged with ripe '99 acidity. Flowers, herbs and animal notes in the intense yet almost indescribable finish.“
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar,
Oct. 2001

„Another of these top quality 6Ps that theoretically would have qualified for Aszú-Esszencia labelling, but again, I find it subjectively correct to label it either 6 Puttonyos (which it only says on the back label) or then simply "Lapis Aszú", as this wine will be in the future. Good fresh yellow. Greater depth and minerality than the Királyudvar mixed field 6P. Not so much sweeter than more serious and structured, strong acidity and more volcanic soil typicity, dense, concentrated, viscous, long, candied yellow fruits with lemon rind and an impressive chalkiness and a tiny dried mushroom top note. Retasted a couple of days later from a bottle that Anthony had kept open in the fridge, which had kept perfectly fresh and revealed rather more volcanic bitter notes, stone dust, lemon rind and white chocolate subtlety than before, lovely sugar-acid balance and yet more length, but also more noticeable sulphur...

lpis

Lapis was mentioned amongst the best vineyards behind the near the Szegi and Long village in 1867. The name of this tract refers most likely to Nicholas Lapispataki, who became a Vice-Lord-Lieutenant of Zemplén County in the late 15th century, and had possibly a specific connection to the vineyard. Situated on a volcanic hill, this picturesque vineyard is comprised of rolling slopes and high terraces that reach elevations up to 230 meters. The soil of Lapis is composed of Gray and Brown Clay, and Volcanic White Rhyolite Tuff. The focused expression of the Lapis terroir remains consistent across its wines; wet stone in the nose, a muscular structure and steely minerality in the finish.

Just Said ...

„The count himself came forward and took off the cover of a dish, and I fell to at once on an excellent roast chicken. This, with some cheese and a salad and a bottle of old tokay, of which I had two glasses, was my supper.”
