 Wine Advocate 93 points (Dec 2013)
There are only 1,185 bottles of the 2008 Tokaji Aszu Birsalmas 6-Puttonyos. The nose demonstrates a little more conviction than the previous vintage, although it retains that languid personality, more resinous in comparison to the Betsek or the Nyulaszo. Similarly the palate is suffused with more tension than the 2007, with a seam of blood orange and citrus peel that keep this focused and taut. Long in the mouth, with impressive persistency, this is the Birsalmas to look out for. I must admit that I was unfamiliar with the Nyulaszo single-vineyard, but I was bowled over by two vintages that I tasted.

Wine maker notes
The tiny Birsalmas vineyard borders the town of Mad and its gently sloping vineyards face south east. At .5 hectares, it produces on average 1,800 bottles each vintage. Birsalmas means quince in Hungarian and there is always an element of quince interwoven with the other honey, apricot and honeydew melon flavours. Birsalmas is the only 2nd growth single vineyard wine in the portfolio.
