2018 Domaine J. A. Ferret Pouilly-Fuisse Macon
Winemakers Notes: The Pouilly-Fuissé is a blend of only the best vineyard parcels with ten to thirty five-year-old vines from the Fuissé amphitheater and soils composed of limestone and clay. Each parcel was vinified separately to ensure the finest expression of the fruit. Half the wine was fermented in enameled tanks and half in two to four-year-old oak barrels. The wine was aged for ten months on lees in French oak barrels, not new, from Tronçais, Vosges and Nevers stave wood. Pair with shellfish and mollusks, seafood risotto, grilled or pan-fried fish, veal cutlets with creamy sauces and cheeses, especially goat or hard cow milk cheeses.
Tasting Panel - "Crisp, mineral driven, smooth, and juicy, with bright acidity and a long, fresh finish—classic."
Burghound - "Aromas of ripe white orchard fruit and citrus zest introduce rich and nicely voluminous middle weight flavors that possess a succulent and mouth coating palate impression, all wrapped in a sneaky long if mildly warm finish. This should drink well relatively early yet also repay a few years of keeping. Barrel Sample: 89-91"
