Flavors come to life in the mouth, with honeycomb, pear and canned apricot. Well-balanced acidity is an excellent foil for the delightful sweetness. - Jeff Jenssen

The clean, pure bouquet offers dried honey, a light adhesive note, lanolin and candle wax, very complex and mercurial in the glass. The elegant, well-balanced palate features apricot, quince, marmalade and a touch of ginger. What I adore is the manner in which this Betsek builds in the mouth and fans out like a great Tokaji ought to. Another outstanding single-vineyard offering from the Royal Tokaji Company. -- Neal Martin

Perhaps you can taste the contrast of rich and cool in this 2016, the wine filled with creamy apricot-and-peach density of flavor, yet lifted by brisk spice, citrus and floral notes. It feels vivacious and pretty, carrying itself with an ease that belies its sweetness (it’s the richest of Royal Tokaji’s 2016 aszús, at 185 grams per liter of residual sugar).

While residual sugar sits at 185.8 g/l, the sharp acidity (10.2g/l) gives the Betsek a refreshing thrust. Crunchy green apples, citrus and lemon zest are dusted with peppery spices on the palate, fresh and inviting. (Drink between 2020-2025)
