‘Dusty lemon and lanolin nose with dried herbs and mint leaf. Finely textured, creamy palate weight, wonderfully harmonious with a pithy orchard fruit finish.’ – Greg Sherwood MW, 94+/100 ‘Unctuous, with sweet corn, saffron and raisin notes, while a second layer offers more exotic guava and mango fruit. This opens up with some air and delivers even more complexity. Pretty vibrant and graceful, showing good definition, range and balance. Drink now through 2037.’ – Wine Spectator, 94/100 ‘Very deep. Polished and complex appearance. Copper/orange with a hint of green to the rim. Always a good sign… Lovely, open nose. Complex and very pure. It has the finesse, elegance and filigree of a Moëlleux from Vouvray more than one would expect from a Layon wine. This is not an obvious Moulin Touchais style but excellent nonetheless… Deep, concentrated entry. Great texture. Very clean and pure. Chalky, mineral expression. Complex, exotic, with some orange/citrus notes. This is already very plush, flattering and open with hints of liquorice to the finish. Exceptional and the biggest surprise of the whole tasting. This is drinking well now and should continue to hold for many years, although I fail to think how it can improve any more than it already tastes.’ – 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.
