Domaine Ferret is located in the Maconnais district of Burgundy. The 18 hectares (45 acres) of estate-owned vineyards are entirely contained within the boundaries of the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation and are planted across the region's full range of terroirs. The portfolio is predominantly focused on single-vineyard and single-parcel wines made from Chardonnay.
The domaine dates back to 1840 and is renowned for its parcel-by-parcel vinification approach introduced by Jeanne Ferret, who owned the company until 1993. Ferret was responsible for the establishment of two of the domaine's most well-known vineyards: Tête de Cru and Hors Classe. Her daughter Colette managed Domaine Ferret up until 2008 when it was purchased by Louis Jadot.
The domaine's diverse soil types vary from poor limestone soils, to richer clays and volcanic pebbles. This geological variation means that there is a lot of variation in Domaine Ferret's wines. The east-facing Tête de Cru vineyard, for instance, is the source of the Le Clos, Clos des Prouges and Les Perrières wines, while the southeast-facing Hors Classe vineyard produces two parcel specific wines: Les Ménétrières and Tournant de Pouilly. The domaine's highest-quality parcels are also blended to produce its Pouilly-Fuissé wine label.
AOC Pouilly-Fuissé, Maconnais, Bourgogne
Country of Origin:
These deep sandy loams are derived from sedimentary clays and don't contain any stony material. The bedrock features seams of limestone and marl-limestone.
Fermentation and maturation took place in barrel, of which 20% were new and 80% were 2nd, 3rd and 4th use. Maturation lasted 10 months, then the wine spent seven months in stainless steel tanks on fine lees.
Here too there is a trace of reduction but it's sufficiently subtle as to allow notes of petrol, quinine and wood toast to be discerned. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess an opulent mouth feel that allies with fine intensity on the sneaky long finish that flashes impressive power if limited elegance.
