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.

Still incredibly youthful in its appearance with a straw yellow, pale gold colour. Lemony bees wax, fresh marmalade and subtle clove notes show plenty of potency with honeyed cinnamon and spicy baked apple notes following up on the rear. Still remarkably fresh and light on its feet, this wine still has decades of life left in it. Drenching the palate are rich, luscious flavours of honeyed baked apples, quince, dried apricot and subtle clove infusions. Cinnamon spice then moves in. Finishes with a lick of brisk acidity which gives the wine an energetic feel. Long, powerful yet elegant conclusion.
Drink over the next 20 plus years.
