Always the most racy cuvée! The delicate nose intensifies after some opening time and reveals lemon aroma, zest and vebena. Its mouth, both tense and dense, is tasty.
Exhibiting aromas of pear, crisp melon, freshly baked bread, waxy citrus rind and iodine, Ferret's 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé Tête de Cru Les Perrières is medium to full-bodied, textural but chiseled, with a racy spine of acidity and a taut, mineral profile. As ever, it will demand a bit of patience.
The 2020 Pouilly-Fuissé Les Perrières 1er Cru, which comes from more clay soils, matured in 25% new oak, is finely-tuned on the nose, well-defined with citrus peel, yellow plum and light honeysuckle scents, a hint of chamomile emerging with time. The palate is well balanced with a fine spine of acidity, one of more "nutty" cuvées from Ferret with a fine touch of bitterness lending tension on the finish. Fine.
