Situated in the heart of Fuisse, Domaine Ferret has long been a producer of top Pouilly-Fuisse cuv?es. The estate was managed by the Ferret family from its founding in 1840 until it was purchased by Louis Jadot in 2008.The Pouilly-Fuisse vineyards lie on a narrow band of land in southern Burgundy. Since the creation of the appellation in 1936, only wines from the villages of Chaintre, Fuisse, Solutre-Pouilly and Vergisson are authorized to bear the Pouilly-Fuisse name. Domaine Ferret?s estate vineyards comprise 42 acres throughout the Pouilly-Fuisse appellation; 22.4 in the amphitheatre of hills surrounding the town of Fuisse, 9.65 near the Roche de Vergisson, in the north of the appellation and additional acreage in the various single vineyard crus. The native soil is mainly argilo-calcareous throughout the growing area, with distinctions from one plot to another. Across the entire region of Burgundy, Pouilly-Fuisse has among the most complex soil types. The climate benefits from the Mediterranean influences wafting up the Rhone corridor. Since 1840 Domaine Ferret has had an uninterrupted tradition of women as winemaker, a tradition that has been continued by Audrey Braccini since 2008.
