„The 2008 Tokaji Aszu Betsek 6-Puttonyos is another fabulous 2008 to add to the Royal Tokaji Company’s roster. The nose is as clean as a whistle: beautifully delineated with candied orange peel, honeysuckle and resinous scents, the latter becoming more accentuated with about 20 minutes aeration. The palate is underpinned by the razor-sharp acidity that lends this Tokaji so much freshness and vitality. It is a feisty little thing like the 2007, but the 2008 displays even better control and focus. The tangy marmalade-infused finish rivets you to the spot, and those spicy white pepper notes just add another level to an already superb Tokaji. Throw out the Sauternes! This brilliant Tokaji will last decades, not years.“
Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (, 2013)


Betsek faces Király – the old Royal Vineyard. The black volcanic topsoil contributes to the mineral and lovely black pepper characters in the wine. Being on the bottom of the valley it is much more “earthy” than the other 1st Growths. The name refers to the Becsk family, that gained some regional prominence in the 15th century."
