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.

Not as deep in colour as the 2007, the 2005 has a pale gold core with golden edges. Nosing fills the nostrils with baked apple, honey and cinnamon aromas trailed by ripe pear, quince and spice notes. Beautifully balanced palate with mouthfilling flavours of honeyed pears, baked apples and quince creating a viscous feel. Counterpointing the rich, luscious fruit is underlying fresh acidity which gives the wine a sense of vitality. Traces of marmalade, dried pineapple and spice are also evident. Expressive and pure with an epically long finish.
Drink it over the next 30 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews....
Ripe and unctuous in feel, featuring creamed peach, mango and guava notes gliding throughout. Stays bright and defined thanks to well-inlaid chamomile and salted butter accents. There's a flattering feel through the finish, with a light marzipan hint starting to creep in. This is just beginning to open up and should cruise for quite some time. Drink now through 2040.
