Moulin Touchais

Moulin Touchais Coteaux du Layon 1985


A vanishing tradition in the Loire, Moulin Touchais holds onto its stocks of bottled wine for a full decade before release. This allows them to be sold as mature, nobly-sweet Chenin Blanc that is full of rich, developed flavors like marzipan, musk, and toasty apple marmalade. Savory notes of fennel and straw mix with a stony minerality and vibrant acidity that has remarkable persistence for a 20 year-old bottle. Coteaux du Layon is one of the handful of places in the world where the climate is nearly perfect for noble rot: morning mists from the river Layon provide humidity while afternoon sunshine on south-facing slopes promotes ripening. If you have never experienced the taste of one of the world's great botrytised, ''noble rot'' dessert wines from Sauterns, or a Tokai from Hungary or an Auslese Riesling from Germany, this is your opportunity to get onboard for a small fraction of the full fare. Normally these wines would cost you hundreds of dollars, so book your flight now!
