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 first 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'.
This wine really demonstrates the aging potential and wonderful favour profle that these wines develop. Deep golden colour with deep orange gold hue. There is a hint of oloroso sherry like note at frst sniff, followed by hints of honeycomb and orange rind. The palate shows great power and concentration. Flavours of lemon, honey, orange and caramel emerge. Excellent acidity. Perfect balance. Very persistent aftertaste of caramel, orange rind, honeycomb, lemon and honey.
