The vineyards of Coteaux du Layon are situated along the banks of the River Layon in France's Loire valley. Here, some of the finest sweet wines of the world are produced exclusively from Chenin Blanc.
"Polished. Very good graduation from a copper centre to a green rim. Clean and concentrated nose, moving towards some savoury elements. Again, cheese straw or like a dry Madeira. The nose is open and attractive with very good poise on entry. Immediate, clean and pure. Linear, with lovely freshness and balance. This is still very lively and there is absolutely no rush to drink. This is on a plateau and unlikely to improve but enjoying an eternal drinking window. On today’s showing, the vintage of the decade." - Richard Kelley, MW
Moulin Touchais traces its roots back to 1787, sharing a long, illustrious history that accounts for the estate's breath-taking collection of historic vintages. Speak to other merchants who remember the wines from old and they were viewed with a degree of suspicion. How was it that ‘unlimited’ amounts of pristine-looking stock could be so readily available? The answer is innocently apparent, since each bottle is labelled to order and old vintages are checked and reconditioned (topped up with the same vintage and given a new cork) before they are despatched. The cellars here must contain one of the largest and oldest collections of any winery anywhere in the world, with the miles of underground cellars containing close to two million bottles at any one time, including a rare collection of ancient wines; the oldest dating back to the mid to late 19th century.
This wine has been shipped directly from the estate's cellars, ensuring perfect provenance.
