Lucky is the one, who ever tastes an Essencia from Tokaj´s icon István Szepsy. He released Essencia only for the vintages 1996 and 1999, at very low quantities. A real collector´s gem.

It is unnecessary for upscale Essencias to state tasting notes, since there is such a diverse range of flavors which makes any comment needless. The number of points, together with the maturity, speak for themselves. 450g of residual sugar and 14.8g of acid. 19.5/20 points.“
Sigi Hiss, wine writer,, December 2012

„...Cognac-coloured. Cognac nose also. Candied lemon, egg yolk, lightly roasted honey, pine, some baked apple, some dandelion, caramel... Outstanding.", November 2012

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.”
from „His Last Bow”
