Royal Tokaji Furmint Special Reserve 2012

No wine has intrigued me more this month than Royal Tokaji’s Furmint Special Reserve 2012, sold by Laithwaites (under screwcap) for £9.99. Dry Furmint can be intense but austere, rigid and inarticulate; this was delicate, unshowy, beautifully balanced and full of nuance. I kept it open in the fridge over five days and it got better every day. Pear, peach, beech leaf, mint, pineapple, yellow plum and greengage flitted about like butterflies in a summer garden. Despite its discretion, the wine was mouthfilling and it had quiet structure and authority; the intrinsic nobility of variety and terroir were evident. Great work; great value.
