Aromas of grilled almonds and lime-leaf tea with notes of wax preced rich, luxurious flavors on the palate, balanced by precise minerality. The finish is particularly long and intense, and this wine can age for 10-15 years.
Wine Spectator 91 points - A rich, spicy style, boasting vanilla, clove, nutmeg and butterscotch flavors. The apple and grapefruit notes remain in the background for now, with an expansive finish echoing spice accents. Drink now through 2019. 50 cases imported.-BS

Situated in the northern Fuisse region, bordering on the hamlet of Pouilly, the Tournant de Pouilly vineyard of just under one hectare lies on an east-facing slope. Old vines of an average 50 years old are planted along a narrow band of pearly slabs of fossilized oyster shells that twist their way between Fuisse and Pouilly, which give this wine a linear, mineral character. There is deep, limestone-rich silt and clay containing a few stones, as well. Fermentation takes place in oak barrels, of which 20% are new, and is followed by a period of six months’ aging on fine lees.
|Pair with fish or white meat, such veal, in sauce.
|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.
