product Details

Princesse Piroska 4 Puttonos 1988 Tokaji Aszu

Tokaji is one of the world's great sweet wines, second only in recognition to France's Sauternes - yet it was France's King Louis XV who declared Tokaji "The King of Wines, The Wine of Kings!"

Produced in much the same process as Sauternes, the Furmint grapes are affected by botrytis cinerea (aka "Noble Rot") which inflicts dehydration and thus a concentration of the sugary pulp which is then pressed and fermented.  The wines are then categorised by sweetness with ascending Puttonyos, 1 (dry, table wine) to 7 (very sweet, very rare & very expensive!).

This bottle is in good condition: light cosmetic damage to label/seal; cork/closure secure, no leakage.

Important Notice

We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.

Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
