Description

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse Clos des Prouges is made from grapes sourced from a 2 hectare specific vineyard site in Domaine Ferret’s vineyards located in the natural amphitheatre that surrounds the village of Fuissé itself. Situated right in the centre of the village of Fuissé, this Clos is just over two “hectares” in size and is planted on a shallow slope that faces east. One third was planted in 2003, one third in 1986 and one third was planted in 1956, making it one of the oldest owned by the domaine.

Domaine J A Ferret is located in the heart of the village of Fuissé in the Maconnais wine-growing subregion of southern Burgundy. Domaine Ferret can trace its history back to its foundation in 1840, way before the official creation of the Pouilly Fuisse AOC in 1936. Jeanne Ferret was responsible for establishing their Tete de Cru and Hors Classes wines, single parcel wines from the best vineyard sites that the domaine has become renowned for. After World War II, she was also responsible for moving from bulk wine production to bottling the wines at the Domaine at a time when this was not the done thing. Domaine Ferret remained in the Ferret family until 2008 when the domaine was acquired by Louis Jadot. The current winemaker is Audrey Braccini who continues the uninterrupted tradition of women winemakers right back to 1840. Today the property’s vineyards cover 17 hectares of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation.

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse Clos des Prouges is barrel fermented and aged: 20% were new barrels with 80% in 2nd, 3rd and 4th use barrels. Maturation lasted 10 months, then the wine spent a further 8 months in stainless steel tanks on fine lees.

Serve With

Try with snails in puff pastry, veal steak in sauce, goats cheeses and hard cows cheeses.

Tasting Notes

From Domaine Ferret: “Velvety and expressive, this wine shows notes of undergrowth and moss, with an opulence that is so very typical of Fuissé. On the palate, this wine is notable for its sculpted precision as well as its fleshy, juicy character.”
