Domaine J. A. Ferret, Pouilly-Fuissé Premier Cru (Burgundy, France) Les Ménétrières “Hors Classe” 2022

($93, Kobrand Wine & Spirits):  Maison Louis Jadot, one of Burgundy’s top producers, recently purchased Domaine J. A. Ferret, one of stars of Pouilly-Fuissé.  Under Jadot’s leadership, the quality of the Ferret wines, already top-notch, has risen even more.  (Sadly, so has the price.)  All of Ferret’s vineyards are located in Fuissé, the heart of the appellation.  This finesse filled Les Ménétrières shows the height that Pouilly Fuissé can achieve.  It is a fantastic wine delivering everything you would expect — a touch of fruitiness accented by a piercing minerality and a plethora of nuances that appear with each sip.  An uplifting, long, and bright finish just amplifies its appeal.
