Tasting notes for the Pouilly-Fuissé "Clos des Prouges" 2019 - Domaine J.A. Ferret

  • EYE: A brilliant and luminous golden yellow color. Its clarity is remarkable, indicating its purity. The wine stands out with its beautiful shine and density in the glass, offering an attractive appearance.
  • NOSE: This wine is expressive and complex. Aromas of yellow-fleshed fruits such as peach and apricot skillfully mingle with notes of exotic fruits like pineapple and mango. Hints of vanilla, fresh butter, and toasted hazelnut bring a creamy and indulgent dimension. Subtle floral notes of acacia flower complete the ensemble, adding a touch of delicacy.
  • MOUTH: The Pouilly-Fuissé has a smooth and velvety texture. The flavors of ripe fruits unfold generously, offering notes of juicy peach, apricot, and exotic fruits. A beautiful freshness accompanies these flavors, emphasizing the wine's balance. Nuances of vanilla and hazelnut blend harmoniously with a subtle minerality, bringing complexity and depth. The finish is long and persistent.

 

In short: This Pouilly-Fuissé "Clos des Prouges" 2019 from the Domaine J.A. Ferret is a wine of great finesse and a beautiful expression of its terroir. Its complex nose and velvety palate make it an elegant and well-balanced wine. This vintage pairs perfectly with fish and seafood dishes such as oysters or grilled fish. It also pairs well with poultry dishes or soft cheese. This Pouilly-Fuissé can be tasted right away, but it also has an interesting aging potential. It can be stored in the cellar for 5 to 7 years to further develop aromatic complexity and nuances.

The heart and soul of the Mâconnais

 

The Domaine J-A Ferret, founded in 1840, is first and foremost the story of two women: Jeanne Ferret and Audrey Braccini. In the 1950's, Jeanne Ferret (and her daughter Colette, who inherited the estate) was the first to embottle her wine herself and sell it directly at the Mâconnais estate. This was quite the feat at the time, in the Burgundy region. She was the one behind the plot-specific vinification process that still exists nowadays at the winery.

As for Audrey Braccini, she's in charge of the Domaine J-A Ferret since it was bought by Louis Jadot's trading house, in 2008. She's an expert oenologist who seeks purity and intensity at all costs. Lately, she's also proven her attachment to nature, as she decided to convert to biodynamic agriculture. The 18,5 hectares estate may have a low yield (only 90,000 bottles per year) but this only make its wines more exceptional.
