93 points Neal Martin (Vinous): "The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Clos des Quarts, co-owned by Olivier Merlin and Dominique Lafon, does not include the oldest vines in this particular vintage. Since these were planted in 1917, this plot was bottled separately in magnums to celebrate its centenary. It has a very classy bouquet, one that is beautifully defined with orange pith, apricot, lime flower and jasmine aromas that all gain intensity with aeration. The quality terroir comes through, even without those old vines. The palate is fresh and citrus-driven on the entry, bright and vivid with notes of orange rind, pine kernels, hints of mango and spice. This feels very harmonious and focused, demonstrating impressive depth on the flinty finish. This is a very impressive Pouilly-Fuissé from one of its most historic and now rejuvenated vineyards. Drink: 2021-2034. (Jun 2019)"
92 points William Kelley (Wine Advocate): "The 2017 Pouilly-Fuissé Clos des Quarts opens in the glass with a promising bouquet of delicately buttered orchard fruit, honeycomb and blanched almonds that's discretely framed by a deft touch of new oak. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and muscular, with a tight-knit, concentrated profile and tangy acidity that's not entirely integrated into the wine's structural profile at the time of writing. The raw materials are promising, but a little patience will be required. Drink: 2021-2033. (Aug 2019)"
92 points and 'Outstanding,' Allen Meadows (Burghound): "(a monopole with a large percentage of vines that were planted in 1917). Softly exotic aromas include those of pineapple, lychee, marmalade and a hint of wood. The solidly concentrated and voluminous middle weight flavors possess a lovely sense of refinement and excellent minerality before concluding in a complex, delicious and impressive long finish that evidences a refreshing bitter lemon character. This isn't classic but it's lovely all the same. Drink: 2025+. (Oct 2019)"
