Pouilly-Fumé Château de Tracy 2013
The 2013 Pouilly-Fumé from Château de Tracy was, I have to say, the best Sauvignon Blanc I,ve drunk in recoverable and trustworthy memory, which probably means the last two or three years. Why? Because it wasn't a "Sauvignan Blanc" so much as a beautifully sappy, vibrant, softly green white wine. It made me realise that any wine grower who wants to produce truly great Sauvignon Blanc should be doing everything thet can to mute, rather than amplify, its varietal characteristics. And that the Central Loire really is a great terroir for this grape.
