Chateau des Quarts Pouilly Fuisse "Clos des Quarts" 2018
93 pts Allen Meadows, Burghound (Dec 2020):
There is a whiff of olive oil character to the petrol and very floral-suffused aromas of various white orchard fruit and citrus zest. The intense and driving middle weight flavors possess outstanding mid-palate density along with fine minerality that adds a sense of lift to the powerful yet refined finish. This actually is vaguely reminiscent of a first-rate Chablis and this is a stunner of a PF. Highly recommended.
92 pts Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (Jun 2020):
"Very pale color. Fresh pears, low acidity, but excellent pH, starts quietly and builds beautifully with an excellent white fruit and balanced acidity integration to finish, with a lightly saline terroir touch. Excellent persistence, fine balance."
Stephen Tanzer 訪問Olivier Merlin後說: “Merlin picks the clos early. “It’s my Montrachet,” he explained. “Chaintré wines are usually strong and open, and the growers in the village typically pick very late, sometimes too late, in search of full body and low acidity.” Merlin is after a markedly different style.”
Allen Meadows 訪問Olivier Merlin後說:
"Oliver Merlin was positively aglow as he told me about his joint venture purchase with Dominique Lafon of the historic property known as the Château des Quarts; indeed he described it as a “once in a lifetime opportunity. Financially speaking it was too expensive for me to purchase it alone so I called my good friend Dominique and told him about the possibility of acquiring the property. We went to look it over and as soon as Dominique saw it he said ‘I’m in, this is an opportunity that we’ll probably never see again."
今日介紹呢一款Pouilly-Fuisse "Clos des Quarts" 係Olivier Merlin與Dominique Lafon二位布根地白酒大師的傑作，Lafon酒莊應該不需要我再贅述，佢係布根地白酒的地位，大約就是DRC、Leroy在紅酒的地位，絕對係白酒天王，而Olivier Merlin也是Pouilly-Fuisse產區裡的代表性人物，二位白酒大師攜手釀出的佳作，只要飲過，味蕾就完全被征服。
