About This Wine
Chateau des Quarts was created in 2012 by two of our favourite vignerons, Dominique Lafon and Olivier Merlin, who are old friends. The vineyard is managed by Olivier Merlin and the wine made in his facility at La Roche Vineuse. This monopole vineyard of 2.23 hectares in ChaintrÃ© is surrounded by a high stone wall, facing east, overlooking the SaÃ´ne valley. In 2017, the oldest vines celebrated their centenary. The key to their longevity is riparia rootstock and an oldschool training and pruning regime. Olivier Merlin chose to harvest the Clos des Quarts vines before his own, on 29th and 30th August, starting each day at dawn and finishing at lunchtime, so as not to pick during the heat of the day. As the note shows, this policy has paid off. Yields were acceptable, but the fine late summer weather has concentrated the juice admirably.
