This 1998 boasts powerful concentration and depth of flavors. Excellently proportioned and with an intensity that rivals a great Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet. Don't miss this rare Pouilly-Fuisse! With no heirs to continue running the estate, the estate was sold a few years ago to Maison Louis Jadot, ending almost three centuries of Ferret ownership! This is from the estate's most fabled vineyard, Les Menetrieres. The vines are over 45-years-old and the wines are made like grand cru Burgundy, barrel-fermented with extended lees contact, and aging in 25%-50% new oak for 18 to 24 months. An extraordinary Pouilly-Fuisse! Extremely rare in magnum.

"Impressively rich and ripe '98. A bit heavy, but the silky texture coats the palate with hints of toasted bread, mineral, spice, honey and pear tart notes. Balanced, lingering finish vaults it into the outstanding category." 90/100 Wine Spectator
