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 is still quite muted on the nose, but the palate speaks for itself. Ripe and tropical in style, it also has some young Riesling notes. Powerful, rich and concentrated, but displays excellent balance. Seductive and certainly approachable now, this is going to have a very wide drinking window since it will continue to develop and age for decades to come.
