„This exuberant Tokaji starts with an enticing nose of orange peel, honey, flowers and toast, and explodes in the mouth with intense, delicious waves of lemon, orange and honey flavors. A perfect balance of acid and fruit keeps the wine fresh without losing its luscious appeal. A memorable wine loaded with personality and excitement. S.K. (5/1/2009) — 94 points“
Wine Enthusiast

„A touch of new oak rounds this out, and attractive grassy, herbal notes add an edge to the apricot, marmalade and stone flavors. Beautifully balanced and succulent, with a long light-weight and saturated finish. Furmint, Hárslevelü and Muscat. Drink now through 2035.“
Wine Spectator

„Light exceptionally light and sweet basalmic. Deep sweet plum green apple baked in a pie. Delicous.“
Ben Narasin, wine writer

„Tart orange, floral nose; tasty, rich, creamy textured, tart apricot, orange palate with depth; long finish (Furmint, Hárslevelú, Yellow Muscat; aged for 5 and a half years in used Hungarian oak barrels). 95 pts. ... My top three wines of the evening, with ratings up to 95 points, were the gorgeous ’99 Royal Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos Mézes Maly, Bouchard’s ’08 Chevalier-Montrachet, and Domaine William Fèvre’s ’08 Chablis Les Clos.“
Richard Jennings at the 2010 Wine & Spirits Top 100 Wineries Tasting,

„Wonderfully complex: amazing spicy, lemon, lime, citrus peel and apricot notes on the nose with a hint of raisin. The palate is super-concentrated and rich showing raisins, syrup, apricot and lime with a long, pithy finish. Amazing. 95/100“
wineanorak.com

„... this is a world-class wine from Hungary and worth clubbing together with mates to share a bottle alongside some Colston Bassett Stilton. Get your nose into this wine for superb layers of apricot glory with a bundle of funky notes: honey, citrus and nutty complexity. Sip it - special stuff. Rich, sleek, sweet and pure with a bright zing in the tail.“

Mézes Mály near Tarcal is one of the two Great First Growths in Tokaj. In the text of the 1700 classification this vineyard stands out as the very finest - described as Pro Mensa Caesaris Primus Haberi - ‘to be the first choice at the Royal table’. 11 hectares of Mezes Maly are jointly owned by Royal Tokaji and Hugh Johnson. The French pioneering wine writer André Jullien (1766-1832), wrote in 1816 in his "Topographie de Tous Les Vignobles Connus" about this vineyard: "The wine of the cru of the mountain Mezes-Malé does not enter commerce; it is destined in its totality for the caves of the emperor and those of some magnates who posses some vineyards there."

Just Said ...

„Another glass, Watson!” said Mr. Sherlock Holmes as he extended the bottle of Imperial Tokay. ... „It is a good wine, Holmes.” - „A remarkable wine, Watson. Our friend upon the sofa has assured me that it is from Franz Josef’s special cellar at the Schoenbrunn Palace.”
