Crisp, citrusy and minerally, like Chablis, yet with underlying spice, this is a dazzling white. It’s from one of Europe’s most historic vineyards, and a cellar that’s been numbered among the Top 100 Wineries in the World six times. Rare indeed.
"Delicate, fresh and fruity. Weighty with underlying acidity. Makes a great alternative to Sauvignon"
Decanter October 2017 publication
Tokaji is Hungary’s most noble wine, with 400 years of history and royal patronage. Most are sweet, some intensely so, yet this version is bone dry and ranks alongside Chablis as one of the defining styles of Europe. It’s made from the rare Furmint grape, which has the aromatic intensity of Viognier and the stony freshness of Chenin. And it comes from the Royal Tokaji Company, the brainchild of the world’s favourite wine writer, Hugh Johnson. “I had to wait for the Iron Curtain to come down before I could start up my dream machine” says Hugh. But it was certainly worth the wait, as you’ll taste with this superb release. Fermented and aged in new oak, it marries crisp fruit with spicy vanilla. A lovely choice with rich creamy chicken dishes.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
