A 7.5 hectare monopole Grand Cru sandwiched between Morey-St-Denis and Bonnes Mares, Clos de Tart is a name that you should always keep on your radar and one that we always take time to make a visit whenever in Burgundy.
Previously owned by the Mommessin family and sold to Francois Pinault (Owner of Chateau Latour) last year, Clos de Tart has emerged as one of the truly greatest wines of Burgundy. This is the largest monopole vineyard classified as Grand Cru in Burgundy, it has never been split up and is a top Grand Cru that is built for long array of aging. Burgundy expert Clive Coates described Clos de Tart as “full and the most masculine of the Morey-St-Denis Grand Crus”, with very detailed comments of this great cru - “Clos de Tart has a typically Morey character, bigger than Musigny and Les Amoureuses, not as full-structured as Chambertin. Alongside its neighbours the wine has the backbone of Bonnes-Mares and the lushness of Clos de la Roche, but not the soft centre of Clos des Lambrays and Clos Saint-Denis. There is plenty of wine here, and it keeps well. This is a first class estate producing one of the very best of Burgundy's Grand Cru wines.”
Jacques Devauges, the winemaker of Clos de Tart explained that the monopole is segmented into 8 different plots, that are fermented separately into individual barrels every vintage and blended afterwards – in order to maintain top-notch quality of this monopole in each and every vintage. Clos de Tart also produces a second wine - Clos de Tart 'La Forge de Tart' 1er Cru - which only 6 vintages have been produced in the last 15 vintages; and from our personal experience, 2006, 2007 and 2008 ones of the best value and comparable to top neighboring Grand Crus.
