This is simply one of the greatest dry Tokaji Furmints I have ever tasted. I can recall only a few bottles of Szepsy and Demeter Zoltán from the last two decades, that amazed me this much. Those were made in a very different style, though, oaked and full-bodied.
The top dry white from Péter Pince. It’s also one of the finest in Tokaj, if you ask me.
Péter Pince was a new discovery for me last year. The dry wines
made at this address are among the most vibrant and precise ones in Tokaj, making the producer my current favorite from the whole wine region.
If you are in doubt that Tokaji Szamorodni can be as great as Aszú, try the Gizella Pince 2017. It was my favorite from our recent blind tasting.
Besides Aszú, Szamorodni is the other sweet flagship wine of Tokaj. It was the theme to our wine club early December (2019), on which occasion we tasted six of them, plus three other sweet whites blind. I’m gonna post the three I really liked in the next few days, starting with the Gróf Degenfeld Szamorodni Sárgamuskotály Selection 2017.
