Pouilly-Fuissé 'Terres de Vergisson', Bret Brothers, Burgundy, France 2018
Regular price £41.45
Burgundy is in the blood of Jean-Philippe and Jean-Guillaume Bret, whose family have owned vineyards in the Mâcon for generations. However, these previous generations opted to sell their fruit to local cooperatives, rather than make wines for themselves. The Bret brothers broke this tradition in 2000 when they took over the vines and established the Domaine de la Soufrandière. They converted first to organic growing, and then biodynamics, putting focus solely on the natural terroir of Pouilly-Vinzelles, Mâcon-Vinzelles, Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé. In 2001, they set up Bret Brothers, the negociant side of Domaine de la Soufrandière. Here they buy top-quality, organically farmed grapes from 40-year-old vines in small plots in the best sites in the Mâcon, to make exceptional wines with the same level of care and attention to detail as their domaine bottlings.
Pouilly-Fuissé 'Terres de Vergisson' 2018
A round and charming Pouilly-Fuissé. Aromas of pears, honeycomb and orange oil. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a textural attack, ripe but succulent acids and a broad finish.
