‘Ripe exotic aromatics with yellow orchard fruits, chalk and lemon confit. Plush, broad and fleshy texture, opulent, quite showy, unctuous and mouth coatingly sweet made in a more ‘obvious style’ with softer acids. Retains lovely purity of fruit.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 93/100

‘The year of the heatwave. A very hot vintage with no chance of any botrytis influence. Deep appearance. Yellow/gold with a distinct green rim. Rich, concentrated nose. Shows the influence of the vintage. Open and accessible on the palate, but one senses this is still finding itself. Very rich and highly textured with surprising freshness for the year. This continues to develop and is starting to evolve into something really special. It has a nutty, almost autolytic character of a mature vintage Champagne. The jury was always out as to whether it would be a wine for the long-haul, but this is now showing more class and potential than the 2005 vintage. The new vintage of the decade…?’ – Richard Kelly MW

Producer information One of the world’s largest and oldest wine stocks can be found at Moulin Touchais, established in 1787, on the banks of the Layon River in the Loire Valley. Comprising of about 2 million bottles dating back to the mid-19th century, Moulin Touchais guarantees its customers a century of longevity. The estate is renowned for a sweet Chenin aged for a minimum of 10 years in their seemingly endless cellars. The longevity and complexity of their wines is linked to a harvesting strategy where they pick at various stages for freshness and concentration and then bottle early – between 6-8 months after harvest.
