Winemaker Notes

The Pouilly-Fuissé is a blend of only the best vineyard parcels with ten to thirty five-year-old vines from the Fuissé amphitheater and soils composed of limestone and clay. Each parcel was vinified separately to ensure the finest expression of the fruit. Half the wine was fermented in enameled tanks and half in two to four-year-old oak barrels. The wine was aged for ten months on lees in French oak barrels, not new, from Tronçais, Vosges and Nevers stave wood. Pair with shellfish and mollusks, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces and cheeses, especially goat or hard cow milk cheeses.

COMMENTARY: What is the deal with Pouilly-Fuissé? As one of most famed Burgundies, this growing region, its wines were uneven in quality over the decades. While the appellation was popular amongst wine drinkers, the cognoscenti eschewed it. The 2017 Domaine J.A. Ferret Pouilly-Fuissé Les Perrières Tête de Cru an outstanding wine as it leaves others in the dust. TASTING NOTES: This wine is delicious, flavorful, and well-balanced. Its aromas and flavors of Golden Delicious apples, lemon peel, and oak accents should pair it well with roast chicken, arugula, and wild mushrooms. (Tasted: January 22, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Generous richness and beautifully fresh chardonnay flavors pour out of this savory white. It feels brisk, a cool southern Burgundy that seems to express sun on limestone rather than the warm tones of sunny fruit. This is a selection from the domaine’s parcels in Fuissé, half of the lot vinified in lined concrete vats, the other half in older barrels. Its spicy, gingery finish will meld with roast chicken and garlic potatoes.

Audrey Braccini has made a range of impressive wines in 2017. This is a cuvée of 30 parcels, including six premiers crus, combining lightly wooded and stainless-steel-fermented lots. Spicy patisserie aromas lead you into a palate of pears and waxed lemons supported by good acidity.

Wine Spectator
Lime blossom, acacia, white peach, apple, lemon and mineral flavors penetrate this lithe, elegant white. Harmonious now, but should develop nicely. Drink now through 2025.

Domaine Ferret has played a key role in defining the quality of the region. It was the first domaine in Pouilly-Fuissé to begin bottling on the estate, shortly after the Second World War. Further, its long-standing focus on vinifying each parcel of vines separately has allowed for the identification of the top terroirs. The Domaine Ferret portfolio falls into three tiers: Classic, Têtes de Cru and Cuvée Hors-Classe. The Tête de Cru and Hors-Classe parcels that have been identified are a precursor to the stratification of the appellation system (which is currently under consideration by the Institut National des Appellations d’Origine). As in the Côte d’Or, the wines in each range reflect their particular terroir, and these top cuvées are produced only in great vintages.

Domaine Ferret’s estate vineyards are comprised of 18 hectares throughout the Pouilly-Fuissé appellation; 14 of these are located in the amphitheater of hills surrounding the town of Fuissé and 4 are near the Roche de Vergisson, in the north of the appellation. These terroirs and the relatively low yields, allow the production of exceptional cuvées. The vineyards are managed sustainably with an aim toward an even more rigorous respect for environmental concerns.

The source of some of the most sought-after white wines of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé is produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape and tends to be slightly richer in style than wines from its northern neighbor, the Côte de Beaune—mainly due to warmer weather. Wines from Pouilly-Fuissé have some versatility; they can be enjoyed young and can also often improve with a little time in the cellar. Pouilly-Fuissé wines are considered some of the best values for white Burgundy.

Similar to the Côte de Beaune, the soils of Pouilly-Fuissé are mainly limestone and clay. The appellation includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré. The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation, from Vergisson, expresses more minerality and finesse. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
