94 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 1981 Moulin Touchais is the current release from this iconic producer and the wine is quite lovely, offering up a deep and complex nose of apricots, oranges, honey, a touch of beeswax, new leather, a touch of caramel corn and chalky soil tones. There was a touch of acetone in the first bottle of this wine I tasted, and the follow-up bottle showed this quality for the first few minutes it was opened, but it then dissipated briskly. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and zesty, with a fine core of fruit, lovely focus and complexity, vibrant acids and excellent length and grip on the well-balanced and zesty finish. This is really a very precise and racy vintage of Moulin Touchais, with the acid backbone to age for many decades to come. Lovely juice. 2013-2050. (May/Jun 2013)"
