Chateau de Tracy Pouilly Fume 2012

External Review by Great Wines Direct:

Aromas of fresh spearmint complemented by mineral and weighty citrus flavours. Classic Pouilly Fume from this historic producer.Pouilly Fume is one of the Loire s most famous wines, perfumed dry whites that epitomise the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Sauvignon here is often called Blanc Fume because wines made from this variety when grown on the limestone soils with some flint (silex) exhibit a smoky flavour. An organic approach to viticulture is followed but the Chateau is not certified as being organic. No pesticides are used, yields are kept very low and strict canopy management is used. The Chateau uses vine-training systems that result in a well-ventilated canopy and therefore can reproduce conditions that are not conductive to the growth of fungi thus avoiding the need to spray the vines. Chateau de Tracy is rated as one of the stars of the Upper LoireGrapes: 100% Sauvignon BlancRegion: France / Loire / Sancerre AOCMaker: Comte Henry d AssayNotes: A well-balanced fine dry white wine that is full and round on the palate, with a fruity and flinty bouquet and a lingering finish.Serve: At 10-12c as an aperitif or to accompany fish dishes such as sole, salmon or trout.ABV: 13.5%Suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans
