Pouilly Fuissé Tête de Cru Clos des Prouges 2017 Domaine Ferret
A wine that combines both power and elegance. It reveals notes of almond, apricot and minerality. The finish is exceptionally long and vibrant. A wine whose refined. Creamy honeysuckle aromas and a vivid palate show a pleasing balance between depth of flavour and richness, and a long ripe rich finish revealing notes of gingerbread and flowers. A wine that will keep and develop beautifully over time.
Domaine Ferret is situated at the heart of the village of Fuissé and has long been a producer of some of the appellation's top cuvées. Founded in 1840, it was the first Domaine to begin bottling at the property shortly after the Second World War. Furthermore, the focus on vinifying each parcel of vines separately from a relatively early date allowed Ferret's owners to identify the top climats (vineyard zones).
2017 saw low yields due to hail in the Mâcon region but wines show richness and depth.
Made from a single 2ha vineyard planted on limestone soil, where a third of the vines were planted in 2006, a third in 1986 and a third in 1956. Fermentation and ageing took place in barrels: a third in new barrels, a third in one year old barrel and a third in 2 years old barrels over 9 months. Ageing is then finished in stainless steel tanks on fine lees over a 5 month span.
