Ratings and Reviews

92 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (for 2015):
"The 2015 Tokaji Pezsgo Henye Brut is a rich, intense, full-bodied blend of 70% Furmint and 30% Hárslevelu, and this recent release combines super ripe, concentrated fruit with mineral depth and structure as well as the refreshing elegance and finesse of a great sparkling wine. It is a mouth-filling and generous wine with power and intensity as well as perfectly balanced, refreshing and refined creamy texture. It's impressively long and salty with refreshing but concentrated fruit. 13% alcohol. Tasted in February 2019. This sparkling wine is completely sourced in the Henye single vineyard and was fermented in 500-liter Hungarian oak. After the second fermentation (with Champagne yeasts), the fizz was kept on the lees for a total of 22 months and disgorged in July 2018 with a dosage of one centiliter of the 2002 Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos. The total production is just 200 cases."
