4 stars "Bettane & Desseauve rave in their recent book, "The World's Greatest Wines," including Hetszolo as one of only seven Hungarian producers: "The French company GMF....invested considerably in Tokaj at the time of denationalization. It chose its vines well, taking over the imperial domaine established in the 17th century,...Hetszolo......The company's choice of personnel has been similarly astute, particularly with the appointment of Tibor Kovacs, one of the best enologists in Hungary. He had the courage to defend the "new" winemaking techniques, challenging the backward-looking conservatism of his colleagues...the highly floral aromas...are the most elegant we've encountered." Tokaj Hetszolo Tokaji Aszu 6 Puttonyos is a glorious example of Hungary's finest wine tradition--decadently rich dessert wines capable of aging 50 years and longer. This gem is a blend of botrytis grapes of Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat. Enjoy Tokaj Hetszolo Tokaji Aszu 6 Puttonyos as a dessert in itself or with fruit pastry or fresh berries."
