Luminous apricot tawny. Apricots and dust and velours on the palate. Very bracing and zesty and one of the first wines in this tasting I have been tempted to swallow. Obviously very high quality. Jancis Robinson
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.
