A 5 puttonyos Aszú must contain at least 120 grams of residual sugar. András Bruhács, a Hungarian cellist at the Hessian State Theater House in Wiesbaden (Germany), founded the Tokaj Classic label with his co-musicians Martin Schneider and Carl Gustav Settelmeier, after they had first established the vineyard “Villa Makár” in Pecs in the south of Hungary – motivated just by pure passion for these great wines. In the historic village of Mád they bought a 400-year-old estate, and 8 hectares of vineyards in excellent Mád sites Betsek and Kiraly, formerly all owned by Hungarian noble families. With no less than six gold medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London, Tokaj Classic is Hungary's most successful estate at this prestigious competition.
Gorgonzola is perfect with the greats of the sweet wine world and this Hungarian Tokaji would be just perfect. The Botrytis notes of the wine pair beautifully with the flowery mouldy notes of the Gorgonzola without overwhelming it.
