Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2009 Furmint has a light, grassy bouquet with hints of lemon peel and apple blossom. The palate is medium-bodied with a pleasant dried apricot and quince opening, a fine line of acidity, and a poised and nervous finish that begs you politely to take another sip. Very fine. (Dec 2013)

The first Tokaji Aszu wine was created in the 1600s and Tokaji became the first European region to have its vineyards classified, 1st Growth, 2nd Growth, 3rd Growth, a system still used in Hungary today. World Wars and Communism halted quality winemaking. In 1989, inspired by wine author, Hugh Johnson, RTWC’s founders started the winery in an effort to preserve what they considered a dying art. Red Label is a blend of selected grapes from several of Royal Tokaji’s first and second growth vineyards with only eight vintages produced since its premier release in 1990.
Producer
Battlegrounds, volcanic hills, labyrinthine tunnels, wine for czars, popes and royalty. The history of Tokaji spans eight centuries, from glory to obscurity through a second, and now a third, renaissance. In 1703 the Prince of Transylvania gave Louis XIV of France a gift of Tokaji. The wine was served at the Court of Versailles, where it was proclaimed the "Wine of Kings, King of Wines".
