Press Reviews

On the opposite side of the Loire to Sancerre lies Pouilly-Fumé, which, like Sancerre, relied upon its distinctive limestone soils to nourish its grapes, and the great river itself to transport the wine to consumers in France and around the world. Pouilly-Fumé is just a bit more distinct from Sancerre in the smoky bouquet that often comes from the bottle, sometimes called a “gun flint” aroma, although not that many of us regularly smell flintlock guns these days.

Like the Mellot family, the Tracy family – originally from Scotland – have several centuries of winemaking tradition behind them, and run their 33 hectares of vineyards on environmentally friendly grounds. This is refined, aromatic and another gorgeous dinner party wine, particularly well-suited to asparagus and prime white fish, such as a big baked brill or turbot.

My second classic wine is from the middle of the Loire Valley, interestingly not that far from the vineyards of Chablis. The grape variety for this wine is a different classic, that of Sauvignon Blanc. The vineyards of Pouilly Fumé make some of the best Sauvignons in the world, and Chateau de Tracy Pouilly Fumé 2019 is no exception. Again grown on wonderfully sited slopes, overlooking the Loire river, much of the vineyard is old vines, and the combination gives rise to exceptional wines, with great complexity, elegance and refinement. The aroma is floral, with notes of fresh orange, white peach and nectarine. A beautifully balanced palate shows structure, depth and elegance from this excellent vintage.

...the sauvignon blanc of Château de Tracy is among my favourites in Pouilly-Fumé, the Loire, the world … a wine of evanescent, verdant, spirit-lifting charm.
