Chateau de Tracy Pouilly Fume Haute Densite 2017

Chateau de Tracy Haute Densite Pouilly Fume is the flagship wine from this remarkable Château. It is a delicious wine when served chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish dishes such as sole, salmon or trout. Take care not to chill this wine too much though as you may miss it's magnificent flavours if overchilled.

The first members of the noble Stutt family in France came from Scotland in the fifteenth century to help the future King Charles VII of France during the Hundred Years War. In 1586, by way of marriage, the family inherited Chateau de Tracy. The Chateau is still family owned and cultivated today under the leadership of the Comte Henry d'Estutt d'Assay. An organic approach to viticulture is followed but the Chateau is not certified as being organic. No pesticides are used, yields are kept very low and strict canopy management is used.

Vinification
Skin maceration with a slow, gentle pressing to produce the highest quality juice. No chaptalisation was necessary, due to the exceptional maturity of the grapes (natural alcohol was 13.4 % Vol). 85% of the wine was matured for one year in stainless steel vats, with regular stirring of the lees (batonnage). The remaining 15% was fermented and aged in oak barrels. The two wines were then blended and matured for a further year.

Viticulture
This wine is produced from high-density vines (17,000 vines per hectare; the standard density for the appellation is 7,000 vines per hectare). Competition between the vines is therefore greater.

Tasting Note
Chateau de Tracy Pouilly Fume Haute Densite has a full, crisp attack with underlying power and richness. The mid palate has a good structure which enhances the freshness, the fullness and power, giving a slightly tannic sensation. The final flavour is rich and appetising with great length ending on slightly roasted notes.

Everyday Serving Suggestion

Served chilled as an aperitif or to accompany fish dishes such as sole, salmon or trout.

Can you explain your shipping charges?

We charge the amount the courier charges us to deliver the wines. In the majority of cases this is £10.00 for a dozen wines. For local delivery we charge £5.00 as we can often do this ourselves, by local we mean Milton Keynes.

Couriers charge by weight and size and a case of wines is both heavy and bulky and so the costs are fairly high. The charges are the same if you are buying 1 bottle or 6 bottles but they change if you go over 6 bottles due the the excess weight and size. Couriers also charge a fee to cover fuel excess and this all goes towards the total cost not to mention the 20% VAT to be added to everything.

Currently if someone orders a dozen wines they are charged £10.00 but if they order 24 bottles the charge is the same!

If you wish to have your wines shipped to other countries the costs are extreemly high and often not worth paying for. The cost for example to ship to the USA for a dozen wines would be £100.00 for the shipping alone! Therefore we have taken the decision not to ship any wines outside of the UK.

 

What is your minimum order?

The minimum order is 1 bottle! I prefer it if people order more and you get better value with the delivery if you do this too!

 

What if I want to send wine as a gift?

No problem, we will send to your preferred address and even include a card free of charge!

We have two kinds of cards a blank one and a Thank you one. However if you want a Valentines one or a birthday card or anyother type of card please let us know. We will write your personal greeting and even include the soppy stuff. We don't charge for the cards as its our way of thanking you for choosing us to send a gift to your loved one. 

 

What about a discount?

I may be able to take a little off the price if you ask nicely and there is a large enough order. Please do not ask for a discount on any orders under 12 bottles.  Email me with your requirements and I will let you know if I can do anything. However the best way to get a discount is to sign up for the newsletter as there is often special offers given away to newsletter subscribers.
