Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Le Clos

Domaine Ferret

Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Le Clos play

Region: France / Burgundy / Poully-Fuissé

Situated between the winery building and Fuissé’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.
