Superbly rich and generous, the wine has aromas of subtle cream blended with rich Chardonnay fruit, with honey notes. On the palate, ripe fruit, toast and quince paste punctuate a full-bodied, generous rich wine that is powerful, intense and vivid, with a long, haunting finish. The wine will benefit from further maturing in bottle.

Les Menetrieres is a southeast-facing vineyard less than one hectare in size that borders the village of Fuisse. One third of the vines are 40 years old; one third are 20, and a third are 10. The upper half of the vineyard is planted on shale, while the lower half is planted on pearly slabs. The soil is composed of alluvial deposits, a mix of deep silt and clay with few stones. The subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marls, while top layers are rich in stone-free limestone deposits and light marls. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, of which 20% are new, and is followed by a period of six months’ aging on fine lees.
Food pairing
Due to its richness and balance, this wine is best paired with dishes of great refinement, such as a sole Meuniere, a terrine of foie gras, grilled lobster, sea bass or poulet de Bresse with cepes. It’s also a perfect partner for such cheeses as Vacherin Mont d’Or, Saint-Marcellin or even a Saint-Maure.

Producer
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.
