The Winery

Clos de Tart is a domaine based on a single grand cru monopole vineyard and winery in the Burgundy commune of Morey-Saint-Denis, making two wines, both from Pinot Noir. Its history dates back to a 12th Century abbey constructed by Cistercian nuns of the Notre Dame de Tart order. The vineyard has remained a monopole ever since. In 2017 it was bought by French billionaire François Pinault for a figure thought to be in excess of €225 million ($260 million). The property was previously owned by the Mommessin family (since 1932). The family sold its négociant business to Jean-Claude Boisset, of the major Burgundy wine family, but retained the Clos de Tart vineyard. The Mommessin brand has relocated to Beaujolais under the Boisset family, while the wines of Clos de Tart ceased to carry the Mommessin name on the label. The vineyard covers 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) and earned its grand cru status in 1939. Clos de Tart has a southeast exposure and is divided into six blocks with slight differences in soil composition and aspect. Each block is harvested and vinified separately to make the most of the differing microclimates. Vine work, including harvesting and training, is mostly done by hand due to the steep gradient of much of the vineyard. The property also has its own nursery where it cultivates massal selections of its vines for future replanting. The only two wines it produces are the grand cru Clos de Tart, and the premier cru La Forge de Tart that carries the Morey-Saint-Denis designation.

Fantastic aromas of crushed berries and toasted oak, with undertones of blackberry and black olive. Full-bodied, with velvety tannins and a caressing finish. This is still tight and structured. Needs time. - WS90
