Chateau Pajzos, Tokaji, Aszu, 3 Puttonyos, 2003 The nose sports dried fruits, honey, a sense of Amontillado’s nuttiness, a bit of mustiness and wet hay, the appropriate volatility as well as a touch of spiritousness. In the mouth it is thick, tasting of caramel, sweet and acidic. It makes for an economical introduction to Tokaji but honestly will disappoint those who have tasted the wines of Oremus and The Royal. It should be holding on better at this young stage.
