Winemaker Notes

Château des Quarts was created in 2012 through a joint partnership between two old friends: Dominique Lafon and Olivier Merlin.

For over a decade, Olivier had tasked himself with sourcing and making wine from the best sites within Pouilly-Fuissé. After buying grapes from Clos des Quarts for several vintages, he was one of the first approached with the news that it was for sale. Having been already convinced of the terroir's integrity he jumped on the opportunity.

The vineyard is located in Chaintré, the southernmost village of Pouilly-Fuissé. At just over 2 hectares, the oldest vines are almost a century old and are planted on an ideal slop of clay-limestone soil.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 92
An elegant and airy nose displays notes of citrus, white peach, acacia blossom and a whiff of anise. The refined but concentrated and palate coating medium-bodied flavors exude an intense minerality, indeed the mouthfeel is almost Chablis-like, that carries over to the very dry, focused and lingering finale. Lovely.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2019 Pouilly-Fuissé Clos des Quarts has turned out nicely, offering up aromas of pear, orange oil, peach and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, layered and fleshy, with a textural attack and a bright core of fruit, it's pretty and charming.

Chateau des Quarts, France
Chateau des Quarts is a 2.23 ha (though parts of it are not yet planted) joint venture between Olivier Merlin and Dominique Lafon. A further 40 ares can and will be planted. The Clos is located inside the Quarts vineyard where it occupies the upper part of the slope. The ferruginous topsoil is shallow there and the bedrock below it is Bajocian crinoidal limestone, forming a similar terroir to that of Chambertin, Clos de Bèze, as well as parts of Romanée-Saint-Vivant and the Clos de Vougeot. The Clos is a true clos with all but a few meters of its great wall not standing. This is of more than symbolic importance. Topsoil washed downslope by erosion remains trapped at the bottom of the vineyard by the walls. If soil was ever replaced at the top of the Clos, it is more than likely that it has always come from the Clos itself. The Clos faces due east and is planted at a higher density than is habitual in the Maconnais, 10,000 vines per hectare rather than 6,500 to 8,000. The vines are very old. The oldest were planted in 1917, and Olivier estimates they make up a third of the vineyard. The balance is 55 to 60 years old. The wine is made in Olivier’s cellar, but winemaking and élevage decisions are collaborative. Vineyard management is now organic. Bunches are pressed whole without foulage. Fermentations are allowed to proceed naturally in barrel, 6 to 7% of which are new, and the rest 1 to 3 years old. After malo, the wine is racked into neutral barrels to finish the elevage. Total elevage is a little short of 18 months. Olivier occasionally filters but does not like to fine.

Pouilly-Fuissé Wine

The source of some of the most sought-after white wines of the Mâconnais, Pouilly-Fuissé is produced exclusively from the Chardonnay grape and tends to be slightly richer in style than wines from its northern neighbor, the Côte de Beaune—mainly due to warmer weather. Wines from Pouilly-Fuissé have some versatility; they can be enjoyed young and can also often improve with a little time in the cellar. Pouilly-Fuissé wines are considered some of the best values for white Burgundy.

Similar to the Côte de Beaune, the soils of Pouilly-Fuissé are mainly limestone and clay. The appellation includes the communes of Fuissé, Solutré (which includes Pouilly), Vergisson and Chaintré. The richest Chardonnay comes from Fuissé and Solutré-Pouilly, whereas the Chardonnay at higher elevation, from Vergisson, expresses more minerality and finesse. Pairing Pouilly-Fuissé with lobster or King Crab will bring great joy not only to your palate—but also your pocketbook!

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
