After reading some excellent reviews about Léder Zoltán Köpcös Furmint, 2005 of Tokaj I decided to go for it given that it’s on sale now at around HUF 1 300 which is a bargain of course.
Deep brownish color with brassy reflections. Oily move.
The nose shows signs of age but all in all it’s a pleasant sniff with caramel at first, then Furmint grape aromas. It will have a lime-blossoms undertone later.
The rest is not appealing at all: this full-bodied wine lost it’s character long time ago now fallen into pieces. It seems very old, much older than it is actually with no acidity left but residual sugar which makes it quite unbalanced too.
This wine shouldn’t have been put on sale. I know I sound bitter but I really wonder when retailers will stop selling wines after they’d become rubbish.
Price: HUF 1 700 (I paid some 20% less on a sale)
