Pale yellow with a bright golden hue.The intense aromas of blackcurrant buds and white fruit (pear,white peach and nectarine) gain complexitywhen the wine is left to breathe.Notes of citrus fruit and pepperalso prevail. A lovely initial sensation; supple with a richness backed by an underlying lively acidity. The aromas of blackcurrant buds and lemon follow through on the palate to a persistent and intense finish.
Micheal Broadbent in April 2011's Decanter has this to say about Chateau Tracy.
The Ritz wine list appeals mainly to millionaires, but I spotted one of my favourite Pouilly-Fumés, Château de Tracy, of a vintage which would be in full bloom, 1985. My old (actually much younger) friend, the elegantly attired head sommelier, Thomas Sorcinelli, heartily endorsed my choice. The wine's colour was nothing out of the ordinary, a pleasant pale yellow. But its aroma, like that of the Gassac Blanc, was impatient and surged out of the glass —a waft of scent, light years away from the ubiquitous New World Sauvignon Blanes that can be raucous, gooseberry-like cat's piss. The Château de Tracy, like all aristocrats, was different. A refined, underplayed Sauvignon aroma, at the same time floral, again refreshing; totally distinctive. Dry, its flavour as exciting as its nose, with perfect acidity, both unassuming yet invigorating.
