The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Ménétrières 1er Cru, a blend of three parcels (marl, limestone, and clay soils intermixed), has the most complex bouquet amongst Ferret’s 2020s. Lovely chamomile and crushed stone scents, a touch of orange blossom, though still a little backward. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, taut and fresh, lemon verbena and a hint of stem ginger towards the persistent finish. Superb.

Toasty nose, intense, rich and pure, deep, fresh and juicy, the depth finesse, astounding rendition of the worlds most popular grape varieties.

Unfurling in the glass with hints of pear, citrus oil, smoke, toasted nuts and white flowers, the 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé Hors-Classe Les Ménétrières is full-bodied, layered and multidimensional, with a textural attack that segues into a deep, concentrated core. Long and sapid, it’s the most powerful, muscular wine in the range.

A complex mix of lime blossom, citronella, lemon custard, vanilla and toasty oak aromas and flavors are aligned with a vibrant structure. Athletic and focused, ends with a long lemon- and spice-tinged aftertaste.

This grows at a mid-slope vineyard in Fuissé where the alluvial silt-and-clay soils are calcareous without being rocky. In 2018, the site produced an old-fashioned Pouilly Fuissé, an outpouring of creamy, buttery flavors to round the nectarine and yellow-apple notes. It’s cool, tight and lasting.
