Château de Tracy

Historical documents confirm that vines have been grown on Château de Tracy's property for over 600 years. But the winery really got its start when Francois Stutt--whose ancestors left Scotland to support France's future King Charles VII in the Hundred Year War--married the Lady of Tracy in 1586. By the end of the 19th century, Jacque d' Estutt had bottled the estate's first commercial wines, selling them in both France and Russia. Château de Tracy entered the modern era in the early 1950s when Jacqueline de Tracy agreed to marry the Comte Alain d' Estutt d'Assay, and together they restored and expanded the vineyard. Today, their son, Henri, fastidiously oversees the family business. Located five miles east of the Sancerre appellation, Château de Tracy sits atop a prominent limestone outcropping that overlooks the Loire River. Covering nearly 70 acres, the estate's vineyards extend from the flinty earth of "Tracy hill" to the fossil-rich limestone soils of the "Champs de Cris" plateau. The blending of fruit from these distinctive sites is the key to consistently producing wines with both elegance and power.

Tasting Notes

Full of classic Loire minerality, fresh and crisp with notes of blackcurrant leaf and gooseberry, this is a wonderful expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape.
