Bonné also recommended this “slightly feral” white from Hungary’s Tokaj region which has long been one of the country’s most respected wine regions, known for its Tokaji dessert wines.

He said: “Now owned by American businessman Anthony Hwang, Kiralyudvar is one of Tokaj’s great houses. This dry version of Furmint is reminiscent of the great wines of the Loire (it was devised with help from Noel Pinguet of the Loire’s Domaine Huet, which Hwang also owns) and it’s as focused a version of Furmint as you’ll find. A slightly feral side to it: honeycomb, lanolin and aniseed, plus ripe apple and tangerine flavours. The perfect balance of winter richness and a stoic edge.”

Price: $20
