Tasting Notes

An expressive and quite cool nose blends floral notes, discreet wood, spice hints and ripe black pinot and plum that seamlessly intermingle with rich, delicious and impressively concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess really lovely acid/fruit/tannin balance, all wrapped in a complex, serious and palate staining finish. The subtle influence of the stem tannins gives the very rich, indeed almost lush finish an appealing sense of lift. This displays excellent potential to develop over the next 10 to 15 years and it should last 30.

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2007 Clos de Tart Grand Cru is more easy-going, more nonchalant than the 2008 with bright redcurrant and cranberry fruit mixed with a subtle marine influence; although, it does not have the thrust, the momentum of the ensuing vintage. The palate is balanced with plenty of sappy red fruit. There is something almost Oriental about this Clos de Tart - touches of Hoisin and spice developing towards the finish that has melted in recent years, and become more fleshier and corpulent. I would drink this now and over the next decade.

Neal Martin, Wine Advocate (221), October 2015

The nose has a mix of flavours fresh red fruits and rich ripe black fruits. The start of the palate is discreet cranberries and bramble herbal and spicy. Sumptuous in the middle the ripe fruit gives fleshy richness the tannins integrated not obvious. There is a mineral herbal freshness at the back but it finishes with an opulent richness. 2019-30
