Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Clos des Prouges 2019, Domaine Ferret
Despite its typically Fuissé opulence, this wine is also capable of demonstrating great precision. Intense, with a texture at once fresh and creamy, it is characterised by notes of fresh hazelnut and bergamot. A wine that will keep and develop beautifully over time. Situated right in the centre of the village of Fuissé, this Clos (walled enclosure) is just over two hectares in size and is planted on a shallow slope that faces east. Although a small parcel of vines was planted in 2003, most of the vineyard dates back to 1956, and is therefore more than 60 years old, making it one of the oldest owned by the domaine. The soil is derived from limestone-rich marls deposited during the upper Bathonian period.
