2005 Coteaux du Layon, Moulin Touchais
Here’s one of the stars of the Loire Valley, a property that has been in the Touchais family for eight generations, since 1787. Moulin Touchais is famous for the late releases of their wine, demanding cellarage for ten years before a bottle leaves the property. Their success with the Chenin Blanc grape, one of the two famous white grapes of the Loire (the other Sauvignon Blanc), leads to a crisp, honeyed wine with notes of peach and straw on the nose -- and it’s sweet, but not cloying.
