Domaine Ferrand Pouilly-Fuisse Prestige 2019

A rich and creamy wine with nutty and buttery notes
combined with sweet spice and ripe pineapple flavours.
Producer Note
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 10.5 hectare vineyard 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 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”. Domaine Ferrand holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE)
certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers,
including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use
and water resource management.
Vintage
2019 has been cited as an outstanding vintage and one of the best in recent years.
The dry, warm conditions produced low yields of impeccably balanced, concentrated
wines with searing freshness and remarkable purity. A mild winter was followed by a
chilly spring, with frosts affecting some areas. Cooler temperatures in June resulted in
uneven flowering and some millerandage in some vineyards. However, temperatures
soared in July and August with vines under hydric stress, resulting in superb
concentration of flavours.
Vineyard
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.
Winemaking
The grapes were pneumatically pressed, before being decanted to temperature
controlled 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 was racked, blended and
lightly filtered prior to being bottled.

vanilla. The palate is round and buttery with ripe apricot flavours enveloped in delicate
