Moulin Touchais 1997 Coteaux Du Layon

This is made with Chenin from the Coteaux du Layon. In this vintage there was Botrytis and a total RS count of 92 gr/liter. The nose shows a soft nectarine with a bit of tropical fruits, honeycomb, spice, and lanolin. The palate shows the texture of age with honey drizzled stone fruits and tropical notes. D&M Tasting Notes

Starting to take on a deep golden hue, the 1997 Moulin Touchais Coteaux du Layon is a sensuous sweet wine (92g/L of residual sugar) that offers ripe and concentrated flavors of apricot jam, cooked oranges botrytis-derived spices (60% of the fruit was affected by botrytis, a high proportion for this wine). It is intense, rich and honeyed, coating the palate with its sucrosity. There's just enough acidity here to keep things going but it does not have the vivacious refreshment of cooler years, providing a weightier, fully charged expression. The finish is lengthy and fragrant. 95 PointsVinous, Rebecca Gibb MW April 2021
