93 points Wine Spectator: "...prominent acidity running through and imparting energy and balance. Flavors of light marzipan, dried apricot, honeysuckle and sweetened green tea mingle nicely. This would be a great wine on a dinner table, especially with something like duck à l'orange or foie gras. Drink now. 4,100 cases made, 15 cases imported. (11/15/19)"

92 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "All of us at the table had tasted superior examples of the 1964 Moulin Touchais previously, as this particular bottle had been sourced at auction and was probably not one hundred percent pristine. But even a slightly subpar bottle of the 1964 is still a tasty glass of wine, as it offers up a deep and tertiary blend of baked peaches and quince, sweet nutty tones, a touch of lanolin, orange peel, new leather, a bit of soil and a topnote of tea leaves. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and tangy, with a fine core, very good focus and grip and a long, complex finish. Pristine bottles are more vibrant and a bit less evolved in personality and probably merit three points higher score. 2015-2030. (Sep/Oct 2015)"
