"(from the estate\'s young vines): Moderately saturated medium red Fruity, high-pitched scents of red cherry and mint accented by white pepper Tangy flavors of sour cherry candy, cranberry and flowers show a slightly green quality but little in the way of Morey earthiness, with the white pepper quality carrying through in the mouth This vibrant wine is already quite seductive thanks to its nicely integrated tannins"

Clos de Tart

Superbly situated in Morey-Saint-Denis, Clos de Tart is 7.53 hectares (18.6 acres) in size, making it the largest grand cru monopole in Burgundy.

The 'La Forge de Tart' Premier Cru is the second wine of the Domain, which is made in an identical way to the Grand Vin, the only difference being that it is made from the estate's younger vines (25 years). Manager Sylvain Pitiot’s philosophy is grounded in uncompromising attention to the vines. He believes in picking late (“tard, tard, tard!”as Sylvain says) and a hands-off approach in the cellar. Through his vineyard practices, experiments, and technological investments, Pitiot has moved the Clos de Tart style toward greater ripeness and more intensity, framed by elegance and terroir expression.

The viticulture at Clos de Tart is essentially organic unless encroaching ailments leave no other option.
