Winemaker Notes

Deep ruby color of a royal robe. Very complex nose with a wide range of fragrances: wild strawberry with hints of rose, lilac, spice, pepper, tobacco and noble herbaceous notes. The dense, ample and full-bodied mouthfeel retains an ethereal touch: fleshy and silky tannins lightly fill the palate, leaving a gracious, caressing finish. The 2016 is a powerful wine, elegant, deep and seductive.

The 2016 Clos de Tart Grand Cru, cropped at 35hl/ha, is the first year farmed biodynamically. This was completely breathtaking in barrel, and now, in bottle, nothing has changed in that respect. It has an ineffably complex bouquet, not as intense as it showed in barrel yet extremely deep and cerebral, black fruit mingling with forest floor, crushed stone and a touch of sea spray. The palate is perfectly balanced with a deceivingly understated entry, before a wave of black and red fruit crashes over the senses. It is framed by supremely fine tannin, the intensity building toward a crescendo as it fans out. The aftertaste is unbelievably long, remaining in the mouth 60 seconds after the wine has departed. The best ever - simple as that. Tasted at Clos de Tart. Rating: 99+

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The superb 2016 Clos de Tart Grand Cru confirms the promise it showed from barrel, unfurling in the glass with a striking bouquet of raspberries, rose petals, blood orange, black tea, spices and smoked meats. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and ample, with a deep core of vibrant, searingly intense fruit that entirely cloaks its structuring chassis of satiny tannin, concluding with a long and captivatingly floral finish. More elegant and transparent than the richer and fleshier 2015, this is an exceptional vintage for Clos de Tart. That there are fully 27,000 bottles makes this one of Burgundy's rare confluence of quality and quantity.

The future stylistic direction of this monopoly Grand Cru is uncertain since its recent purchase by the Artemis Group, but I hope that they stick with the current regime, as Jacques Devauges is doing brilliant things. This is a blend of eight different parcels and vinifications, with 60% whole bunches and 80% new oak. It’s a fresh, refine, polished Clos de Tart with precision and elegance, marking a welcome break with the past. 2026-40.

Decanter
The Clos de Tart 2016 is really quite special, and after the technically perfect but soulless wines of the Pitiot-era, it is refreshing to taste a wine at this address that pulls at the heartstrings as well as the head. Aromas of peony, plum, red cherry, roast espresso and incipient gamebird precede a full-bodied, ineffably complete wine with superb depth and dimension, velvety tannins and a deep core of fruit. Concentrated but elegant, this has attained a superb balance. Jacques Devauges has clearly hit the ground running at this storied address.

A wonderfully fresh, bright and layered nose reflects notes of cool red and black cherry, plum, violet, lavender, herbal tea, earth and a subtle, but not invisible, touch of wood. There is notably more volume and mid-palate concentration to the relatively supple medium weight plus flavors that tighten up noticeably on the dusty, balanced and exquisitely persistent finish where a hint of bitter cherry pit surfaces. This moderately powerful effort is shaped by dense but fine tannins and is a wine that should amply repay extended cellaring.

Domaine du Clos de Tart, France
With its 7.52 hectares, the Clos de Tart is the largest of the five Grands Crus Monopoles in Burgundy, the entirety of which has been in sole ownership throughout its history. Throughout the past nine centuries, the estate has only changed hands four times: from 1141 to the French Revolution Clos de Tart belonged to the Cistercian nunnery of Tart Abbey. It was then sold in 1791 to the Marey-Monge family who retained ownership until 1932 when the estate was bought at auction by the Mommessin family. Most recently, the Pinault family, via their holding company Artémis Domaines, purchased the Clos de Tart in 2018. Since 2015 the estate has been practicing organic viticulture and the 2018 vintage is the first certified organic vintage. 2016 also saw the introduction of biodynamic practices with certification following in 2019. The team ensures all efforts are made on a daily basis to showcase this jewel of vineyard, taking care to work with patience and respect year upon year. Keen to retain the uniqueness of its plant material and safeguard its genetic information for future generations, the estate replants using grafted vines from mass selections of their best-performing plants. Today they have a stock of 72 different vines in their own nursery in Morey-St-Denis.

While Morey-St-Denis might not get the same attention as its neighbors, Gevrey-Chambertin to the north and Chambolle-Musigny to the south, there is no reason why it shouldn’t. The same line of limestone runs from the Combe de Lavaux in Gevrey—all the way through Morey—ending in Chambolle.

There are four grand cru vineyards, moving southwards from the border with Gevrey-Chambertin: Clos de la Roche, Clos St-Denis, Clos des Lambrays, Clos de Tart and a small segment of Bonnes-Mares overlapping from Chambolle. Clos de la Roche is probably the finest vineyard, giving wines of true depth, body, and sturdiness for the long haul than most other vineyards.

Pinot Noir from Morey-St-Denis is known for its deep red cherry, blackcurrant and blueberry fruit. Aromas of spice, licorice and purple flowers are present in the wines’ youth, evolving to forest and game as the wine ages.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
