Pajzos Tokaji Aszú Esszencia 2000

Wine description

“The palate is unctuous on the entry with honey, molasses, ginger, Mirabelle and kumquat. Against expectations, it does not feel cloying in the mouth, with admirable purity and focus on the cremebrulee-infused finish. Very fine, very sexy and very more-ish.” Neil Martin, 93 points (2013)

Pajzos Tokaji Aszú Esszencia 1999

Wine description

“It has a very focused, quite “contained” bouquet of mandarin, marmalade and incense that gently unfolds in the glass. The palate is very well-balanced on the entry, the acidity neatly offsetting the swathe of viscous fruit: mango, papaya, marmalade and quince. This is very focused and harmonious with a long fig and raisin finish that remarkably retains freshness and tension. Outstanding. “ – Neil Martin, 95 points (2013)
