About the producer

With 35 hectares of its 150 hectares of vineyard dedicated to sweet wine, Moulin Touchais must be one of the most influential producers of Coteaux du Layon. The estate itself dates back to 1787 and 8 generations of the Touchais family have been involved in its running with Jean-Marie Touchais now at the helm. The family believe that their wines only really come into their own after being aged for a minimum of 10 years, so are kept in their spectacular underground cellars until ready, when only the very best cuvées are selected to be released under the Moulin Touchais label.



Jancis Robinson (Purple Pages jancisrobinson.com):

MaMore botrytis than average. Mid gold. Honey, lemon juice, blue cheese, fine acid on the finish – much more beguiling than 2003. Fragrant, almost minty character – gets more complex with each sip. Very good. (RH). Points: 17. Date Tasted: 10/09/2013
