1985 Coteaux du Layon, Moulin Touchais
The vineyards of Coteaux du Layon are situated along the banks of the River Layon in France's Loire valley. Here, some of the finest sweet wines are produced, and exclusively from chenin blanc. Here, too, Moulin Touchais traces its roots back to 1787, sharing a long, illustrious history that accounts for the estate's breath-taking collection of historic vintages.
"Mid-full. Complex appearance. Orange/copper. Clean, attractive. Spanish brandy-like nose with notes of confit peach or pear. The palate shows great focus on entry, with echoes of the aromas from the nose: brandy-soaked peaches. Toasty. Well textured but a wine defined by its acidity which runs through the core and carries through to a somewhat (positively) phenolic finish. There is a savoury hint showing too. This was always my personal favourite vintage of the decade, but today competes against the 1988 and 1983 "
