The wines are released after ten years in the cellar with some just beginning to reach their peak after twenty years. Many of the great vintages such as the 1953, 1959 and 1969 are still maturing, so it's reassuring to learn that Moulin Touchais are also 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). At frst this seems like a foolish offer and you may well ask "who'll be around to prove it anyway?" The issue can only be resolved by tasting old bottles, which we did, including vintages from 1892, 1885 and 1872. At over 100 years of age, the wines were probably still not at their peak. James Halliday attended our tasting summing up the experience in one word: ‘Euphoric'.
A wine that is still vibrant with youth, displaying remarkable freshness. Deep brassy gold colour with deep straw hue. Aroma of baked apple and spice followed by hints of confectionary. The wine expresses great concentration of favours and mouth feel with very spicy characteristics. Flavours of honey, honeycomb, baked apple and lemon fll the palate. The acidity is fresh, holding the structure of this wine together superbly. Very long aftertaste of honeysuckle, honeycomb, lemon and toffee.
