Refined, refreshing white wine Pouilly-Fuisse "Clos des Quarts" AOC is made from Chardonnay grapes. A third of the berries for it were collected from vines planted in 1917, the remaining two-thirds - from younger ones, age 62-67 years. The grapes went to the whole crushing, fermenting with their own "wild" yeast and malolactic fermentation in new barrels. The final 18-month ripening of the wine took place in old oak barrels.
