„A wine of truthful monumental density, sweetness and oppulence of extracts, certainly the greatest Hungarian wine since 1945 or even longer!“
Mario Scheuermann, wine writer, December 2003

„Weighing in at a huge 2.8% this motor-oil thick golden fluid packs incredible sweetness. Very young, this is going to need a couple of decades to broaden out and mellow at the moment it's extremely impressive, endlessly deep and quite possiblythe sweetest thing you will ever drink ... “, July 2010

„ummm yeah.. well it just bottled so its less than imposible to judge. also we are talking 600 RS, 3% alc...and yet its clean clear and dont ask me. like in the previous wine - the oak shows. spices and orages/lemons, sweet sucking candy, amazingly pure... WOW. 96 points., February 2007

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”
