2007 Ferret JA, Pouilly-FuisseJul. 2009
Medium colour. One third vinified in cask, the rest in stainless-steel and blended 2-3 weeks before bottling. Fresh, though not particularly high-toned aromas though just a hint of brioche. In the mouth there’s lovely freshness – it’s ripe but round and well balanced – there’s just a discrete richness. Mouth-watering length – a very nice entry wine.
2006 Ferret JA, Pouilly-Fuissé Les PerrièresJul. 2009
Medium colour. Fermented and then aged 10-12 months in casks. The nose is clearly more mineral. In the mouth there’s a smooth almost waxy texture – there quite some density and extract here. Just enough acidity to balance and shepherd you into a good finish. Lots of wine here – quite impressive.
2006 Ferret JA, Pouilly-Fuissé Tournant de PouillyJul. 2009
Medium colour – also vinified and aged in oak – about 20% new barrels. Lots of minerality on the nose.. In the mouth it’s a lovely, fresh package of richness and minerality – super extract and length. I very much like the style of this.
