2000 Tokaji Aszu Essencia ‘Imperium’, Chateau Dereszla
We are delighted to be one of the very few UK merchants to get our hands on this sensational Tokaji Aszu Essencia from Dereszla. Only produced in the very finest years, (made twice by Dereszla in the last 22 years), and now a defunct classification, this is a very rare slice of history in a bottle. Incredibly sweet yet with perfectly poised acidity, the wine has a complex apricot and seville orange marmalade fruit character mingled with spice and gingerbread notes. With an impressive 252 grams per litre of sugar it is no wonder the wine is syrupy and very rich, but the constant freshness provided by the acidity keeps the wine balanced and makes it a wonderful match to dark chocolate desserts, good quality cheeseboards and rich pates.

The Quarts de Chaume vineyard enjoys a superb terroir and a unique situation producing wines of rare elegance. This remarkable wine is wonderfuly textured and manages to comine power and clarity alongside richness and precision.
