#19 ENTHUSIAST 100 2022 This wine comes from one of Tokaji's most famous vineyards. It is light amber in color with heady aromas of honeysuckle freesia beeswax and honey. It has pleasant heft on the palate and there are intense flavors of tinned peach clover honey and apricot conserves. It is a well-made and well-balanced wine that ends on a sweet note and makes you want to go in for another and another sip. Drink now?2050. JEFF JENSSEN

The 2017 Tokaji Szt. Tamás 6-Puttonyos comes from red-clay topsoils in the commune of Mád. This is more backward compared to the Mézes Mály and very much more citrus-driven featuring lemon peel orange zest and crushed stone aromas; the Aszú element is more discreet. The fresh vibrant palate is well balanced and harmonious offering a fine bead of acidity and candied orange peel toward the finish. Edgier than Royal Tokaji's other 2017s and perhaps spicier on the finish this will be fascinating to observe mature in bottle. 3635 bottles produced. -- Neal Martin
