Winemaker Notes

Pale yellow with a bright golden hue. The intense aromas of blackcurrant buds and white fruit (pear, white peach and nectarine) gain complexity when the wine is left to breathe. Notes of citrus fruit and pepper also prevail. A lovely initial sensation; supple with a richness backed by an underlying lively acidity. The aromas of blackcurrant buds and lemon follow through on the palate to a persistant and intense finish.

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Intensely yellow-golden in color the 2012 Pouilly-Fumé opens with a clear, slightly flinty and beautifully matured bouquet of cold, wet stones and ripe white and yellow-fleshed tropical fruit aromas (mostly passion fruit, though) and coolish spicy notes. Medium-bodied, vital and nicely grippy on the palate, this is a light-weight yet intense, frisky, very stimulating and fruity Pouilly with remarkable finesse and lingering salinity and phenolic grip. Perfect to drink today, the 2012 should hold this form for another 5-10 years or even longer. Tasted in January 2021.

Wine Enthusiast
Vineyards around the ancient castle of Tracy produce fine wines, like this. It has an intense character, still young, full of fragrant lemon flavors and richly crisp. The wine is going to be impressive, with great depths. Drink from 2017.

Comte Henry d’ASSAY and his sisters, owners of the domaine of Chateau de Tracy are the descendants of a scottish family. 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 naturalization their name was gallicized to become d'Estutt or Destutt. In 1586 Francois Stutt, married the Lady of Tracy. The Chateau de Tracy still belongs to the family.

Loire, France

Famous in the Loire and throughout the world for perfumed Sauvignon blanc, Pouilly-Fume sits due east, across the Loire River from Sancerre. Limestone soils with clay and flint (also called silex) contribute to the wines' freshness and often times smoky, flinty, mineral character.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
