Hi, new to these boards and new to the situation of living in a house with an actual cellar, which has rekindled my interest in wine that's not for immediate guzzling.
Recently I've become very interested in Tokaji aszu. But I'm still not terribly confident when it comes to predicting future trajectories of flavor and drinkability. In fact apart from a few Sauternes I've dabbled in, the whole concept of laying down whites is still a bit alien to me. I know the top Eszencias are supposed to age for all eternity, but I've read conflicting guidance on lesser mixtures. Any advice on the drinking windows for the following vintages would be much appreciated, as well as general pointers:
Aszu Eszencia 1993 (CT says drink now-2030, wine-searcher now-2018)
6 puttonyos 2000
Royal Tokaji Co.
5 puttonyos, 2001, 2006, 2007
6 puttonyos Nyulaszo 1999, 2003
5 puttonyos 2005
6 puttonyos 2002
(sorry for not typing out all the Hungarian accents)
Oh yeah, I've read a few excellent posts by tsunami on this topic, so if you're out there tsunami, I'd love your input
