Château de Tracy Pouilly-Fumé 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Château de Tracy are the oweners of a parchment from 1396 which shows that at that time vines were already being cultivated on this same land at Tracy. At the end of the nineteenth century the vineyard was strictly organised by Jacques de Tracy. He was the first to bottle wine here and he sold the Château de Tracy wines in France and in Russia. At the beginning of the 1950s Jacqueline de Tracy married the Comte Alain d'Assay. Together they restored the vineyard. Control has now passed to the next generation who continue in the same spirit of excellence and quality that has always prevailed. Today Château de Tracy is famous the world over for its Pouilly Fumé wine. Haute Densité is a high quality and small production cuvée Pouilly Fumé. This wine is made to age, and will improve in bottle for a decade or more. The nose shows the trademark combination of citrusy notes with minerals. The palate again combines a rich and mouth-filling creaminess with a firm mineral backbone. A very special wine, one of the best the Loire has to offer.
