Description

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse is a white wine from Burgundy made from Chardonnay grapes sourced from the estate’s vineyards located in the natural amphitheatre that surrounds the village of Fuissé itself.

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.

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse is a blend of wine vinified from the best parcels of vines sourced from Fuissé’s amphitheatre – so bit and pieces from all the vineyards (and others) mentioned above. The vines have an average age of 10 to 35 years and the soil is predominantly limestone and clay. After vinification the wine is aged half in concrete tanks and half in used oak barrels (2 to 5th fill, no new oak).

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse is suitable for vegetarians.

Tasting Notes

Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuisse shows great balance between weight and freshness, with elegance derived from seamless minerality. Layers of subtle fruit notes combine stone fruits, acacia flowers and spiced hazelnut butter. The finish is long, intense and spicy. A wine whose balance permits it to age gracefully.

Food Pairing

Drink with shellfish and molluscs, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces, goat’s cheeses and hard cow’s milk cheeses.
