"The 2016 Nyulászó First Growth Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos, which delivers 180g/L residual sugar, has a deep, honeyed, slightly more introverted bouquet compared to the Ste. Tamás. It gradually reveals scents of manuka honey, orange pith and quince jus, yet it clearly deserves several years to really open. The palate is very well balanced, harmonious and brimming with tension. Pears, Seville orange marmalade, hints of mandarin and fresh figs vie for attention. This is a powerful, intense Tokaji, but razor-sharp, delivering real precision and "bite" toward the finish. Outstanding. 95 points"

"This feels youthful and lean, the peach and lemon flavors pinned to the wine's broad texture by sharp acidity. While it's succulent and almost refreshing now, this is sure to build in complexity with time in bottle. 91 points"

Wine & Spirits

"This is a more elegant and restrained 6 puttonyos Aszú compared to the other single vineyard examples from the producer in 2016. The Nyulászó Aszú has a floral and flinty nose, the struck match-like notes follow to a palate of concentrated sweet spices, fig, dried and fresh apricot and lime zest. The piercing acidity (10 g/l) runs throughout the luscious body, leading to a pure and lingering finish. 92 points"
Decanter

"Slightly closed on the nose at the moment – some notes of acacia, poached peaches and apricots. Quite a compact style, with searing acidity. Lithe and mineral, with an almost dry perception on the finish thanks to so much acid. 17+ points"
Jancis Robinson



NYULÁSZÓ ...
... which was formerly owned by the Piarist Order, is situated next to the Szent Tamás vineyard. Because of its unusual soil composition, the wines that are made from Nyulászó’s grapes are the most complex wines in the Royal Tokaji Co. portfolio of growth-selected aszús. This celebrated 1st Growth single vineyard is one of the most sought after estates in the whole Tokaji region.
