Buy the Domaine du Clos de Tart 2018 from Bottle & Glass Australia.
Clos de Tart is a Grand Cru monopole (ie. one owner) located in the village of Morey-St-Denis in Burgundy. The 7.5ha walled vineyard was founded by the Cistercian nuns of Tart Abbey in 1141, who held it until the French Revolution when it was sold to the Marey-Monge family. In 1932 it was acquired by Macon wine merchant Henri Mommessin who sold it to the Pinault family in 2018. Since his appointment as winemaker in the mid 90s, Sylvain Pitiot has brought significant improvements to the estate.
This wine was purchased directly from the importer on release and has been stored in temperature controlled conditions since that time.
Domaine du Clos de Tart 2018 Reviews
"Absolutely bursting with blue and red fruits, the concentration is deceptive here, as it starts out juicy and full of air, but after a few minutes in the glass you start to feel the weight and the texture, and this turns into an extremely serious wine with real tannic hold. Gorgeous savoury finish, as you get so often in the best Burgundies, where weightlessness is such a brilliant veil to the power behind. 55% whole cluster."
98 points, Jane Anson, Decanter 2/20.
