Domaine Ferret Pouilly Fuissé Hors Classé Tournant de Pouilly 2018

France / Burgundy

Andy's Tasting Notes

Rich and powerful yet still exudes a purity and elegance that confirms its reputation as one of the great Fuissé vineyards.  Gorgeous minerality – Grand Cru quality.

Domaine Ferret is situated at the heart of the village of Fuissé and has long been a producer of some of the appellation’s top cuvées. Founded in 1840, it was the first Domaine to begin bottling at the property shortly after the Second World War. Furthermore, the focus on vinifying each parcel of vines separately from a relatively early date allowed Ferret’s owners to identify the top climates (vineyard zones).

Three labels of Pouilly Fuissé are produced from the Domaine – Classic, Tête de Cru and Hors Classé. In simple terms they represent an unofficial village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru classification based on the quality and personality of the wines produced from the different, specific sites.

Producer Info

With a history dating back to 1840, Domaine Ferret is a jewel at the heart of Pouilly-Fuissé, located in the most famous “climats” of the Fuissé amphitheatre. Since 1840, Domaine Ferret has had an uninterrupted tradition of female winemakers, a tradition that continues today with Audrey Braccini – winemaker and manager of Domaine Ferret.

Audrey Braccini was born in 1979 in the Lorraine region of northeast France, where she grew up admiring her father’s dedication to cultivating his wine cellar. Inspired by his passion, Braccini moved to the heart of the renowned wine region of Languedoc-Roussillon, and enrolled in Montpellier University’s prestigious enology program. After successfully earning a master’s degree in vineyards and wine, she launched her career in Beaujolais and quickly became infatuated with the Gamay grape.

In 2008, Braccini’s talents earned her the position of director for the historic Domaine Ferret estate in the nearby Mâconnais region. Drawing on her years of experience and expertise, she dove headfirst into the regional Chardonnay and Pouilly-Fuissé appellations.

Audrey’s philosophy is to make great quality wines which are a true expression of the ‘terroir’, the vintage and her passion for winemaking. Her aim is to make the most of what nature offers, to do her best with something that is beyond our control, keeping the purity and delicacy and not forgetting that what we have in our hands is one of most beautiful gifts of nature.
