There is lovely weight and feel to the exuberant 2013; with all the concentration, minerality and length one has come to expect from one of the Loire's oldest and best vineyards. Very grown-up Sauvignon Blanc. L&S (Dec 2014)

The 2013 campaign started with a warm and dry winter. The Spring was a cooler period with some rain. From 15th of August, temperatures reverted to seasonal averages. In late September, cool nights preserved freshness and acidity then slowed down the ripening process. Harvest began on 26th of September. The pace had to be fast, in order to find the best compromise between maturity and aromatic potential. A rigorous table sorting allowed a strict selection of the best bunches. The production is smaller than recent vintages, but the structure, balance and the aromatic potential are very promising. Winemaker's notes (Dec 2014)
Founded in 1396, Chateau de Tracy has been in the hands of Comte Henri d'Assay's family for 610 years, which is something of an achievement in itself. Located in the village of Tracy sur Loire the estate covers thirty two hectares under production, on flint and kimmeridgian limestone south west facing slopes overlooking the Loire. With an average age of twenty four years the vines produce significantly lower yields than is the norm in the appellation, making for wines of great intensity, complexity and finesse.
