Appearance: White gold with bright silvery highlights.
Nose: The first nose is intense: passion fruits, mango with a fresh and Narcissus floral hint. On aeration, the wine shows delicacy with soft flesh fruits flavors, crispy apricot or grapefruits, pleasantly highlighted by a mineral and peppery finish.
Palate: Frank attack. It offers a slightly acid frame, with a pleasant aromatic richness. Intense notes of citrus can be revealed, recalling the nose, enriched by hints of lemon. The finish is clear, crystalline, playing with notes of green pepper, which pleasantly highlight the minerality of this vintage.
This wine is recommended to be served with seafood, fish dishes, white meat, and is also enjoyable with creamy sauces and soft goat cheese. Serve cold at about 50 degrees F.
A historic estate with records dating back to 1396, the Château de Tracy is owned by the Comte and Comtesse d'Estutt d'Assay, whose ancestors, the Stutt family came from Scotland in the 15th century to help the future King Charles Vll of France during the Hundred Years War.
Château de Tracy has been run by the same family since the 14th century. Records of the property go back to 1396. In 1586, François Stutt married Françoise de Bar who brought him as a dowry the seigneury of Tracy. By their wedding, the descendants of the Comte d’Assay and his young brother, François Stutt, current owners of the Château de Tracy, get together two branches of a one and only family separated during four centuries. Nowadays, this particular vineyard is still planted with Sauvignon and is still a “key part” of the Domaine.
The Domaine consists of 33 hectares on the slopes around the Château itself (terroir of flint) and those of Vilmoy, a few kilometers away from Pouilly-sur-Loire (Kimmeridgian limestone terroir). To the north of the Pouilly Fume area, on the hillsides which overlook the Loire, the Château de Tracy vineyard extends from "Tracy hill" to the "Champs de Cris" plateau.
