Domaine Ferret Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Les Clos de Jeanne Premier Cru 2020 Burgundy, France

Le Clos is a gently sloping single parcel that faces east. It is located between the house of Domaine Ferret and the village church. This parcel, the smallest among those that produce the Têtes de Cru and Hors Classe cuvées, covers 0.69 hectares right next to the Domaine’s buildings. Since 2020 vintage, and the 1ers Cru arrival in our appellation, this wine, situated in the heart of 1er Cru “Les Perrières”, change his name in honor of Jeanne Ferret’s mind. The plot is still the same. Age of the vines: Half the vines just reach 35 years old, while the rest just turn their 50th birthday. Soil: 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. Vinification: Fermentations and ageing take place in casks of which 25% of cask new, 75% of cask from 1 to 3 wines for 10 months. Then the ageing ends in stainless steel tank always with all their lees for another 9 months. Bottling at the end of March 2022. Tasting: With a rather gourmet and charming nature, ‘Le Clos’ 2020 remains faithful to its terroir. Greedy with a pastry touch, it is nevertheless not devoid of freshness with these notes of zest.
