ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

Located in the heart of the Maconnais, Domaine Ferret has been exploring the richness of Pouilly-Fuissé's terroirs since 1840. The history of the property has been intertwined with that of a series of strong women who have helped raise the profile of the great Chardonnay-based wines of Southern Burgundy in France and overseas. Domaine Ferret owes its current form to Jeanne Ferret, who had the courage to put her own wines in bottle. Above all else, she pioneered the practice of vinifying wines based on a classification of parcels that she devised and which is still the hallmark of the 'Tête de Cru' and 'Hors Classe' cuvées. Her daughter, Colette, and then, from 2008 onwards, Audrey Braccini, have continued to link the domaine's identity with the characteristic elegance of its wines.
