Jancis Robinson, Dec 2009,
Healthy crimson. Lots of energy and savour on the nose. Extremely fleshy already with the tannins well hidden, only just perceptible. This wine expands in the mouth and has a lovely fluidity even if it lacks the sheer size of the 2005. Fine tannins on the finish. Drinking maturity 2011-2022
Domaine de Clos de Tart
Clos de Tarte is a wholly owned vineyard in Morey St Dénis in Burgundy which produces fine, silky red wine. It was originally founded by Cistercian sisters from Notre Dame de Genlis in 1250.
Morey St. Dénis often suffers from an identity crisis. They are more fruit forward than the wines of Gevrey Chambertin, yet more structured than those of Chambolle Musigny. It seems in this sensethat they are like middle children, always wanting to please yet not standing out as the noisy one or the notably quiet one. They are however crowd pleasers and for those who feel that Gevreys are too muscular and Chambolles too feminine; Moreys seem just right, offering velvety tannins and tangible fruit. The village offers five grand cru vineyards including Clos de la Roche, Clos St. Dénis and Clos des Lambrays which nonetheless can rival those of neighbouring villages in terms of quality (some even view them as the best in the Côte de Nuits) and various premier cru vineyards.
