Solid Furmint sparkling from Tokaj: Péter

I find it a bit confusing that besides many sweet and dry white styles Tokaj producers started to make sparklings in recent years as well. Nevertheless this example from Péter Pince is quite convincing…

Extra Brut, Méthode traditionnelle, 100% Furmint. The variety comes through nicely, just as the zesty, precise style of the producer. So clean and well made. Just a slight hint of brioche, it’s all about freshness. Easy to drink, though the bubbles could be tinier. A nice sparkling.
