Natalie's Score: 91/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This ‘moelleux’ (semi-sweet) Chenin Blanc is built to last. Moulin Touchais ages it 10 years before release and it can keep in your cellar for 50 to 100 years. This 1996 is a mere youngster. Ready to drink now, it will gain a more caressing mouth-feel, complexity and depth over time. My note: Opens with ripe melon, pineapple and other tropical fruit. Full-bodied but not heavy. The slight sweetness makes it all the richer and able to marry with dishes that have a touch of sweetness or spiciness. Chenin Blanc food pairings: potato rosemary rolls, candied sweet potatos, sushi, artichokes, Indian dishes.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful deep golden yellow with a watery edge, lots of honey, melon, pear, pineapple, vanilla, smoke with a touch of honeysuckle. Warmth from the alcohol. Lovely dessert sipper or rich, sweet/spicy dishes.
