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'.

Tasting Notes: Brilliant golden colour with golden hue. The nose remains subtle again, with nuances of orange blossom, caramel, toffee, apple andspice. Rich luscious palate with generous mouthfeel. The complexity is beginning to take on even greater expression here; spice, toffee apple, lemon and honeycomb flavours are layered over a viscous palate. The acidity is still fresh, with very long aftertaste of toffee apple, honey and lemon.
