Estate Notes

Monimpex's Aszu Essencia represents the highest quality amongst Tokaji wines, which has more than 180 grams per liter of residual sugar content.

It is one of the first of the world's great sweet wines, which King Louis XV of France called it a: 'wine of kings and the king of wines'. The Essencia was also highly prized by the Tzars of Russia who maintained a detachment of Cossacks solely for the purpose of escorting convoys of the precious liquid from Hungary to the Royal cellars of St. Petersburg.

Essencia first appeared in a Christies catalogue (1770) and an appreciative connoisseur was Thomas Jefferson, who imported and served it at his presidential banquets in the early 1800s.
