History documents that the first sweet wines were produced along the banks of the Layon in 1579, with Dutch merchants encouraging their production, since they appeared to have the stamina to survive the journey by boat back to the Low Countries. Whilst the family Touchais cannot claim to have pioneered the production of moelleux, their ancestors were certainly making wine as far back as 1787. That’s eight generations so far, and counting…

This will prove to be the vintage of the decade and is priced accordingly by Jean-Marie Touchais. It’s even better that the already highly-lauded 2003 vintage. Like most great Moulin Touchais releases, this is already a delight to drink now but could be expected to improve further with age and remain on a long plateau for longer than most of us will remain on this planet. This is expensive by the cellar’s standards, but is a snip in comparison to current Sauternes pricing. Not to be missed.
