Tokaj Kereskedöház 4 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú 2003, Tokaj-Hegyalja (500ml)
This pale gold dessert wine has a lifted nose of apricot, honey, spruce needle and orange marmalade. It’s mid-weight, medium sweet and braced by fresh acidity and bitter orange on the finish. Quite elegant and lively and not sweet enough for dessert. Bring on the orange, nut loaf and creamy cheeses. Score: 90 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, Nov. 2011)

I'm a sucker for sweet wines...even average ones.
This is a decent, if unremarkable, Tokaji Aszu. Aromas of Greek honey, fresh white mushrooms and the classic, slightly stinky, waft of botrytis fungus. Mid-weight, mid-sweetness, mid-everything. But a perfectly enjoyable after-dinner dessert wine. It's certainly no Royal Tokaji, and Sauternes and icewine lovers may be underwhelmed at it's relative lack of depth. But I guarantee if you serve a glass of this to everyone after dinner, or with some blue cheese, no one (except perhaps experienced Tokaji aficionados) will complain.
