Loire

The Loire Valley, famous for its magnificent châteaux, is home to probably the most varied collection of appellations and styles of any wine producing region of France. These include the crisp and mineral Sauvignons of Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé, the richly sweet whites (Chenin Blanc) of Montlouis and Vouvray, and the intense, earthy reds (Cabernet France) of Chinon and Bourgueil to name just three pairs of appellations. We work regularly with three producers in the region: the Château de Tracy for Pouilly Fumé, Henry Natter for Sancerre, and Pascal Cotat whose Sancerres are utterly unique in their capacity for very long ageing, and should therefore be viewed quite separately.

Made from 100% Pinot Noir. Fashionably pale, onion skin colour. Very appealing nose of ripe redcurrants and cranberries with a delicate rose petal hint. Lovely pure strawberry and crushed red cherry fruit fills the palate, with gentle but ample acidity providing elegance & balance. It’s tangy and juicy for certain, but also very restrained, crisp and elegant, and a little mineral, too.  Refreshing and long. Delicious on its own, but a delightful match with a broad range of summer dishes from salads and fish through to cold meats.

Château de Tracy

Comte Henri d’Estutt D’Assay owns one of the Loire Valley’s most stunning wine producing properties.  The Château de Tracy is everything that a Loire château ought to be, and has been in Henri’s family since the 14th century.  Today, the estate is famous for producing one of the greatest wines of the Pouilly Fumé appellation.  Apart from the ‘grand vin’ Henri produces a second cuvée from some of the estate’s younger parcels of vines, to make the vibrant and earlier drinking Princes Ermites.
