Chateau des Quarts-Pouilly Fuisse-"Clos des Quarts"-2014

Chateau des Quarts
Pouilly Fuisse
"Clos des Quarts"
2014

$65.00

Partnership of the great Dominique Lafon (Comte Lafon) and Olivier Merlin. The Clos, purchased by Lafon and Merlin in 2012, is full of limestone, at the top of a hill, facing the southeast. Glorious spot for great Chardonnay. Minerality, bright, crisp, persistence, length, age-worthy. 
 
"Bright, light yellow. Very refined, complex scents of white peach, pear drop, white flowers and stone. At once dense and weightless, conveying outstanding clarity and purity to its citrus and mineral flavors. Hints of spices and mint contribute to the wine's light touch. Like drinking water in the Alps. Lemon-limey acidity and an element of salinity give the finish lift and grip. This dusty, extract-rich wine stains the palate without leaving any impression of weight. Offers a really remarkable combination of density and delicacy. One-third of these vines were planted in 1917 and the rest are over 70 years of age." Stephen Tanzer for Vinous, October 2016
