The heady, light amber-colored non-vintage Tokay (Muscadelle) is pure marmalade and molasses offered in an unctuously-textured style. Justifiably renowned for their tremendous dessert wines, Campbell's four cuvees all performed impressively well, making one wonder if the price difference between the regular and rare offerings is really worth it. Certainly there is a bit more complexity and intensity to the Rare Tokay and Rare Muscat, which emerge from a solera system averaging 60 years of age. In any event, the tasting notes for all four wines are nearly identical to any of the great Australian fortifieds, such as Buller, Chambers Rosewood, etc. Wine Advocate #148 (Aug 2003) Robert Parker 93 points
