The wines of Moulin Touchais begin reaching their peak after twenty years, and many of the great vintages will take much longer. Vintages such as the 1953, 1959, 1964, 1969 are still maturing. The 1945, 1947 and 1949 have become classics. Moulin Touchais are the only winemakers in the world who give a century long guarantee on the longevity of their wines (subject to being kept under optimal cellar conditions). Bottles may show some sediment or deposit. One should understand this is due to the traditional filtration process, the main aim being to protect the colour, the bouquet and the depth of flavour of the wine.
At over 50 years old, this wine is still going strong. Bright deep gold colour with a pale gold hue. The nose is a touch closed and requires some coaxing to release its aromas of bees wax, lemon butter, dried fruits, figs, honeyed nuts, hints of clove and spicy cinnamon. Lusciously textured on entry with sweet rich dried fruits and good underlying acidity, time has bestowed the wine with a sense of elegance. Understated in its intensity, dried pineapple flavours mix with marmalade, infusions of bees wax, quince, some dried honey characters, a subtle nuttiness, faint dried clove and spice. Finishes dry, fresh and complex with a very long, beautifully poised aftertaste that lingers for minutes.
Drink over the next 10 years.
