This is a powerful wine that offers refined flavorsof fresh almond, apricot, yellow fruit and minerals. Overall it is vivacious and balanced, with an exceptional, intense finish.
Wine Advocate 92 points - The 2011 Pouilly-Fuisse Le Clos comes from 20- and 45-year-old vines and spends 5 months in tank plus 10 months in oak. It has a well-defined bouquet with white flowers, quince and a touch of toffee apple vying for attention. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry with a keen citric thread and impressive precision toward the poised finish. Excellent. (Aug 2013)
Wine Spectator 93 points - Fresh and lively, exuding apple, lemon and spice flavors, this white is graceful and expressive. Stays vibrant on the mouthwatering finish, featuring an extra kick of mineral on the long aftertaste. Drink now through 2020.—B.S. (Jun 19 2013)
Situated between the winery building and Fuisse’s old church, the Le Clos parcel is 1.65 acres, and one of few parcels to enjoy an exposure to the east. Half of its vines are 20 years old, while the other half are at least 40 years of age. They grow on a thin topsoil covering limestone and shale. The wine is fermented in oak barrels and sees significant barrel maturation, a part of it on the lees.
|Delicious paired with fish and seafood, turkey and other poultry.
|Situated in the heart of Fuisse, Domaine Ferret has long been a producer of top Pouilly-Fuisse cuvees, based on a winemaking approach that spotlights the estate’s top terroirs.
