Royal Tokaji now owns 16 hectares of this long established vineyard. Situated to the south east of Mád in Hungary, it produces lusciously refreshing wines that are always in demand. Betsek’s black volcanic topsoil contributes to the mineral and lovely black pepper characters in the wine. Apricot and honey predominate. Betsek is an old Magyar family name and this vineyard produces consistently balanced aszu wines. Betsek has been served by President Putin in St Petersburg.
Almond, marzipan, red-currant and ripe greengage on the nose. The almond and ripe
greengage continue on the palate with great acidity for the acid structure, which
is typical of young Betsek. The finish is very clean and long with lovely vivid acidity.
