    Following an unusually cold and snowy winter, budding occurred at the normal time. Summer temperatures were quite mild and there was heavy rainfall. There was a long, dry autumn, which helped the grapes to ripen perfectly. The Botrytis was established at the end of October thanks to abundant mist. It was a very good year.

    Hungary's legendary Tokaji, or Tokay, has a long and distinguished history. Botrytis Cinerea, the so-called noble rot, was recognized in this picturesque region of northeastern Hungary by 1650, a full 100 years before it was identified in Germany. Its effect was dramatic : as Jancis Robinson noted in the Oxford Companion to Wine, "By the 18th century, this extraordinary wine was known to the French court, and was subsequently introduced to the Russian imperial court by the Hapsburgs. Only Constantia from the Cape of Good Hope rivaled Tokay as 'the wine of kings and the king of wines' during this period of sweet wine worship, with Tokay Essencia regarded as an all-purpose restorative." Having fallen into disrepute under the communist regime. Tokay may today be, as Michael Broadbent put it, "the least known of the great classic European wine regions", but that now seems sure to change quickly as savvy western European winemakers flock to exploit the area's exceptional potential. One of the first was Bodegas Vega Sicilia, indisputably Spain's greatest estate, which in 1993 acquired one of Tokay's most highly-regarded properties in the top-rated village of Tolcsva, at the region's heart.
