Pouilly Fuisse Prestige 2017, Domaine Ferrand

Tasting Note

A rich, complex wine with aromas of exotic fruit complemented by subtle hints of vanilla. The palate is round and buttery with ripe apricot flavours enveloped in delicate oak nuances through to a long finish.

Producer Note

Domaine Ferrand is run by Nadine Ferrand who has managed the estate since 1984. Through her courage, determination and intuition she has developed and transformed the vineyard into 10.5 hectares in the heart of the Pouilly Fuissé. In 2012, Nadine was joined by her eldest daughter Marine, the fourth generation to work in the family business. Having worked in sales and marketing in the wine industry in the United States, Marine has brought with her innovative ideas while continuing the family philosophy of “expressing Chardonnay with a feminine touch”. Their wines are characterised by lovely balance and elegant flavours of fresh butter combined with a typical minerality.

Vintage

2017 was a great vintage in the Mâconnais. The summer weather was mainly sunny and warm, interspersed with cooler, rainy days, which allowed the vegetative cycle to develop and the grapes to reach excellent maturity levels. The resulting wines are aromatic and full of varietal character with the cooler nights producing slightly higher acidity levels.

Vineyard

The vineyard sits in the heart of the appellation, on sunny slopes at an altitude of 250 to 300 metres above sea level. Home to 60 year old vines, which are Cordon trained and grown in chalky, limestone and heavy clay soils from the Jurassic period.

Winemaking

The grapes were pneumatically pressed, before being decanted to temperature controlled stainless steel vats, where fermentation took place. 30% of the wine was then aged on its lees in new French oak casks, with a weekly bâtonnage for additional weight, texture and creaminess in the final wine. The wine was racked, blended and lightly filtered prior to being bottled.

Serving Suggestion

A delicious accompaniment to foie gras, lobster, monkfish and chicken dishes served in a delicate cream sauce.
