Description

Domaine J.A. Ferret Pouilly-Fuisse 2018

Domaine J.A. Ferret Pouilly-Fuisse is rich, powerful and round. Pale gold colour with a complementing bouquet of yellow fruits, acacia flowers, hazelnut and butter. Harmonious with a pleasing balance between weight and freshness. Restrained fruit flavours of green apple, yellow peach and lemon with rich notes of honey, acacia and vanilla. Closes in a long intense and spicy finish.

100% Chardonnay from vines with an average age of 40-years-old. A blend of the best parcels from Pouilly-Fuissé’s amphitheatre in the Mâconnais (Burgundy) region. The vines were planted between 2017 and 1947, a little more than 70 years separate the youngest vines from the oldest. A third of the vines grow on west-facing granite soil – a mixture of schists, volcanic sedimentary sands and rhyolitic tuff. The remainder face east and are mostly planted on limestone and Jurassic marls, but there are also some deposits of clay.

Hand harvesting and gentle whole bunch pressing of the grapes. Just over half the wine (55%) matures in stainless steel tanks. The remaining 45% matures in barrels, none of which are new (2nd to 5th use only). Bottling with the waning moon.

Ageing potential: Drink until 2026.

AWARDS & ACCOLADES

TASTING PANEL – 93 POINTS

 Crisp, mineral driven, smooth, and juicy, with bright acidity and a long, fresh finish—classic.

– 91 POINTS

 Aromas of ripe white orchard fruit and citrus zest introduce rich and nicely voluminous middle weight flavors that possess a succulent and mouth coating palate impression, all wrapped in a sneaky long if mildly warm finish. This should drink well relatively early yet also repay a few years of keeping.

– 15.5/20
