Pouilly Fume. Chateau de Tracy 2006

Member Review by Lemma:

Down to our last case - hence being on the site... Much more defined than the '07 which is unlikely to ever get as good. Why tell you this? I suppose 'cos ill snap up all the 6 at twelve quid before you read it and weep. A truely memorable glass, with genuine elegance - that mix of deep flint structure, greenish depth and hints of poncy peach - that you'd best keep for yourself and a true friend. A bottle each, to be fair, if eating. Suggest seabass steamed with ginger and chilli, but what do I know?

Pouilly Fumé is one of the Loire's most famous wines, perfumed dry whites that epitomise the Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Sauvignon here is often called Blanc Fumé because wines made from this variety, when grown on the predominantly limestone soils with some flint (silex), exhibit a "smoky" flavour. The first members of the Scottish noble Stutt family in France were members of a large army, that came from Scotland in the fifteenth century, to help the future King Charles VII of France during the Hundred Years War. After naturalisation, their name was gallicised to become d'Estutt. In 1586, Francois Stutt married Françoise de Bar who brought with her the dowry of the Lordship of Tracy, where the tradition of vine growing had been taking place for centuries.
