CHÂTEAU DE TRACY
2019 Pouilly Fumé Henri d'Assay
The wines of the d'Assay family are rightly lauded for the high quality and incredible consistency they deliver and this release is no different. In their youth the wines are taut and pure, with aromatics of youthful green fruit, gooseberry, citrus and a hint of that characteristic gunflint. In the mouth that shape is continued and the crispness of the fruit makes the mouth water, lean and fresh, with mineral drive and tension. It is well worth popping some bottles away to drink in a few years, when everything loosens off and the fruit enriches and matures into elderflower and white currant and something distinctly herbal can start to be felt. Drinking range: 2020 - 2030 L&S (Nov 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
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.
