Pouilly-Fuissé Autour de Fuissé J.A. Ferret Information
About the domain
Founded in 1840, Domaine Ferret is located in a natural amphitheatre in Fuissé. Owned since 2008 by Maison Louis Jadot, this 18-hectare vineyard is managed by the talented oenologue Audrey Braccini who carries on the domaine’s savoir-faire. The vineyard is mostly split up over the commune of Fuissé and there are significant number of old vines. Add to this low yields and rigorous cultivation inspired by biodynamics. Vinifications are natural and take place on a parcel by parcel basis. The wines are vinified and matured in old oak on the lees. This domaine has become a reference in the Mâconnais and never fails to impress the critics.
About the cuvée
"Autour de Fuissé" is a white wine produced from vines aged between 10 and 35 years, planted in limestone-clay soil. The wine is vinified and élevaged half in enamelled vats, and half in barrels used 1 to 4 times before. This rounded, fresh wine is characterised by a harmonious minerality. Yellow fruit, acacia flower, buttery hazelnut and subtle spice aromas are all present in this wine, which will age harmoniously.
