Pouilly-Fuissé 2014

Domaine Ferret

Pouilly-Fuissé 2014 play

Region: France / Burgundy / Poully-Fuissé
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

The Pouilly-Fuissé is a blend of the best vineyard parcels with 10- to 35-year-old vines from the Fuissé amphitheater, with soils mostly limestone and some clay. Each parcel was vinified separately to ensure the finest expression of the fruit. Half the wine was fermented in enameled tanks and half in two- to four-year-old oak barrels. The wine was aged for 10 months on the lees in French oak barrels, not new, from Tronçais, Vosges and Nevers stave wood.

harvest note

Cold weather seemed to arrive with the first fog, but winter proved both mild and rainy. The month of March saw neither showers nor rainstorms - it was almost as if summer had already arrived. So the vines grew rapidly. By mid-April the growth of the vines were already three weeks ahead of where they had been the previous year. The summery weather continued, with flowering beginning on May 22. The start of summer proper was humid, and cool temperatures slowed the vegetative growth. As summer made its appearance around the 17th of July, its generosity was overabundant. As a result, some bunches were somewhat sunburned, and this led to yields that varied from one parcel to another. While this may have affected the quantity of the harvest, the quality of the bunches at the end of July was unquestionable. Growth had slowed, and was, by this stage, only slightly ahead of the average. The quality of the 2014 vintage is excellent, with our Pouilly-Fuissé revealing itself to be full-bodied, fleshy, juicy, and intense.
