In 2014, Château de Tracy obtained level 3 of the High Environmental Value certification, recognizing its virtuous philosophy and its methods of cultivation respectful of natural balances.
Considered as one of the earliest vintage in Center Loire, 2020 has been a real challenge for the winegrowers. For the most agile winemakers, it will offer a remarkable concentration and superb expressions.
2020 started with one of the coolest winter of the 20 last years, resulting an early bud burst (advance of 8 days). Few consequent rains helped the soil to regenerate good water reserves which were particularly useful during the summer. A drop of temperatures occurred on june, followed by few hails, which impacted the vineyards in Menetou-Salon without really threatening the Pouilly-Fumé area. The summer will see two heat waves episodes in August, followed by significant thermal amplitudes which will be more than welcome at the end of the season. They will promote very beautiful aromatic and phenolic maturities which will partly build this vintage.

As the harvests are generally in advance in Tracy (higher leaf area), we took full advantage of the first part of the harvest under thermal amplitude. These very beautiful days allowed us to harvest in excellent conditions, at our own pace taking time for a precise sorting, selecting very healthy grapes. The warmer end of the harvest prompted us to step up the pace and systematize the night or early morning harvest.

2020 will have required great agility in the organization of the harvests, the vintage will be essentially built on grapes picked at the right point of maturity, the balances are accurate, the aromatic powerful.
Eye: Pale yellow, silvery gray reflections, shiny.
The nose: The first exotic nose is explosive. It develops a very beautiful variation of the character of Sauvignon: boxwood, blackcurrant bud and honeysuckle. Airing clarifies and amplifies these scents, to which are added citrus notes, supported by more subtle hints of curry and saffron, which bring depth to the whole.
Taste: The attack is clean, lively, straight. The bouquet is complex, marked by citrus fruits then exotic fruit (mango, passion). The mouth provides a salivating sensation and offers a nice volume. It admirably declines all the aromatic palette perceived on the nose and continues with fresher notes such as grapefruit zest, followed by saline notes.
