Domaine Ferret Pouilly-Fuissé Clos des Prouges 2018, Burgundy, France

Located in the heart of the Maconnais, Domaine Ferret has been exploring the richness of Pouilly-Fuissé’s terroirs since 1840. The history of the property has been intertwined with that of a series of strong women who have helped raise the profile of the great Chardonnay-based wines of Southern Burgundy in France and overseas. Clos des Prouges is located in the heart of Fuissé. A 5 acre vineyard on a soft slope with east orientation, the soil contains limestone marls. 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 lies over a 5 month span. Tasting note: Velvety and expressive, this Clos des Prouges develops aromas of fern and oak moss. It is rich in style, a characteristic of Fuissé wines. It has a remarkable mouth feel and roundness, an overall fleshy and juicy wine. Great ageing potential.
