2019 Domaine Ferret Pouilly-Fuissé "Tête de Cru Le Clos"

SKU #1530086 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Le Clos offers up notions of pear, crisp stone fruit, mirabelle plum and praline. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and precise, with a bright, tightly wound core of fruit, tangy acids and a long, sapient finish, this has turned out very well. Louis Jadot acquired the Domaine J. A. Ferret, one of the historic reference points for the wines of Pouilly-Fuissé, in 2008. Madame Jeanne Ferret was one of Burgundy's great matriarchs, producing rich, concentrated wines that were harvested late and matured on the lees in oak barrels. Many of the wines produced under her tenure—and that of her daughter—are still drinking well today. Today, the style has changed; but the wines of Domaine Ferret are equally worthy of attention. Winemaker Audrey Braccini is producing fresher, brighter, earlier-harvested interpretations of Pouilly-Fuissé, and they're beautifully balanced, intense and engaging, clearly differentiated by site. The presence of new oak remains decidedly minimal at this address, though the wines see longer élevage on the lees. Braccini excels in warm vintages—witness her compelling 2015s—and so she has in 2019. Concentrated but incisive, everything reviewed here comes recommended, and as is so often the case, I found myself reflecting that this estate is one of the finest and most consistent addresses in the Mâconnais.

90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

Outer quote mark A slightly more oaked and layered nose reflects notes of pear, apple, citrus zest and acacia blossom. The rich and relatively full-bodied flavors possess fine volume, indeed the mid-palate is borderline opulent thanks to the abundant dry extract, all wrapped in a similar bitter lemon-inflected finale that is firmer but not quite as precise. I would note that the wood does show up on the palate and finish so this will need a few years to integrate it more completely. Inner quote mark (10/2021)

K&L Notes

90-92 points Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy: "Typically, Le Clos makes a more generous style than the rest of Perrières. Think of it as a “smiling baby face” Audrey says. This has a lovely free flowing energy, ripe apple notes, then a mix of white fruit with some clementine notes, warm, but not heated. Enough grip behind, but it is nonetheless a sensual style thanks to the clay in the soil. Tasted: September 2020."
