Tasting NotesSituated right in the centre of the village of Fuissé, this Clos is just over two "hectares" in size and is planted on a shallow slope that faces east. Although a small parcel of vines was planted in 2003, most of the vineyard dates back to 1956, and is therefore more than 60 years old, making it one of the oldest owned by the domaine. The soil is derived from limestone-rich marls deposited during the upper Bathonian. Fermentations and ageing take place in casks, of which 25% is new and 75% is one to three years old, for 10 months. Ageing is completed in stainless steel tank, on lees, for a further 7 months. The 2020 vintage will be bottled in February 2022.------"Once again moderate wood is present on the nose of ripe white orchard fruit that exhibit background spice and quinine nuances. The rich and relatively full-bodied are quite generous yet not so such as to be blurry or lacking focus on the delineated, energetic and balanced finale that offers just a bit more depth along with sneaky good length. 2026+. 91-93 points." Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 84

Tasting NotesLes Ménétrières is a vineyard of just 0.8 hectares on the edge of Fuissé, with rich "Dogger Bank" limestone marl deposits running through it, producing the richest of the domaine's wines. Located at the exit of the village of Fuissé, behind the Mont Pouilly in the middle of the slope, this vineyard covers 80 ares and is East oriented. The vineyard has been renewed three times from 1974 to 1999. Fermentation and elevage are handled as for the Clos des Prouges and Les Perrières. The 2020 vintage will be bottled in February 2022.------"This is aromatically similar to the Tournant but with even more spice elements. There is even better volume and overt power to the big-bodied, concentrated and mouth coating flavors that aren’t quite as complex but just as long on the balanced finish. This too is excellent and offers a different expression. 2028+. 91-94 points." Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 84------"This site highly esteemed by Mme. Ferret, whose domaine holds 0.80 hectares here. The soil is clay over limestone and marl. The wine is fermented and aged in cask (20% new) and does its second winter in tank before release. The result is fresh, lemony and very fine, with lovely floral notes, a well-integrated cask element and a bright acidity on the palate. Not at all lacking in length, this is delicate, yet firm. A top wine. Drinking Window 2023 - 2033. 95 points." Charles Curtis MW, Decanter

Tasting NotesThe 1.15-hectare Les Perrières vineyard is situated to the south of the amphitheatre, on mid-slope just beneath the parcel of Le Clos. Exposed south-south-east, the slope here is steeper than it is on the Clos. The vineyard was planted in 1972-1974. The soil, which is derived from alluvial deposits, consists of a mix of deep silt and stony clay. The subsoil features streaks of limestone and limestone marls, while the top layers are littered with stones on the surface. Fermentation and elevage are handled as for the Clos des Prouges. The 2020 vintage will be bottled in February 2022.------"Here too the wood treatment is more prominent still with notes of vanilla and toast fighting a bit with the ripe aromas of poached pear and anise. There is impressive size, weight and power to the bigger and equally generously proportioned flavors that brim with both dry extract and minerality before culminating in an elegant but powerful finish. Patience advised here too. 2027+. 91-93 points." Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue 84------"This wine is from east-facing vines behind Mme. Ferret’s house, and is thus called by the domaine ‘Clos de Jeanne’ although it is in premier cru Les Perrières. It delivers a substantial wine; here the cask ferment (20% new) is more apparent, yet it holds this will and shows approachably toasty ripe apple aromas. There is abundant extract here but the wine remains impressively fresh and lingers seductively on the finish. 92 points." Charles Curtis MW, Decanter
