2017 CHATEAU DE TRACY Pouilly Fume Haute Densite 75cl (Loire Valley, France)
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting: One of the greatest Sauvignon Blancs in the world. An exotic mix of stone fruit, chalk dust, bay and blackcurrant bush leaf aromas precede a taut palate that has masses of, err, density. Tongue coating brilliance that recalls the wines of Pouilly Fumé's legendary winemaker, Didier Dageneau. Yes, it's that good.
FYI: From a sector of vines on the classic Kimmeridge/Portlandian limestone soils outside the village of Tracy. Planted at high density to lower yields and increase concentration.
