A full flavoured and creamy wine with toasty and buttery notes combined with savoury minerality.
Domaine Ferrand is run by Nadine Ferrand who has managed the estate since 1984. Through her courage, determination and intuition she has developed and transformed the vineyard into 10.5 hectares in the heart of the Pouilly Fuissé. In 2012, Nadine was joined by her eldest daughter Marine, the fourth generation to work in the family business. Having worked in sales and marketing in the wine industry in the United States, Marine has brought with her innovative ideas while continuing the family philosophy of “expressing Chardonnay with a feminine touch”. Their wines are characterised by lovely balance and elegant flavours of fresh butter combined with a typical minerality.
The vineyard sits in the heart of the appellation, on sunny slopes at an altitude of 250 to 300 metres above sea level. Home to 60 year old vines, which are Cordon trained and grown in chalky, limestone and heavy clay soils from the Jurassic period.
The grapes were pneumatically pressed, before being decanted to thermoregulated stainless steel vats, where fermentation took place. 30% of the wine was then aged on its lees in new French oak casks, with a weekly bâtonnage for additional weight, texture and creaminess in the final wine. The wine then went through malolactic fermentation, followed by racking, blending and a light filtering, prior to being bottled.
A rich, complex wine with ripe white fruit aromas and subtle hints of oak. On the palate, it is round and creamy with a nutty, toffee finish.
A delicious accompaniment to foie gras, lobster, monkfish and chicken dishes served in a delicate cream sauce.
