Jasper Morris Inside Burgundy, November 2020

Purple black. The 2018 Clos de Tart grand vin doesn’t want to talk to us from the bouquet point of view. Wow, this is a massive wine here, with crunchy minerals at the back, a touch of apple acidity. Black fruit, quite...

The 2018 Clos de Tart Grand Cru Monopole is a truly exceptional wine that showcases the elegance and complexity of Burgundy's Cote de Nuits region. With its deep red color and a nose that is absolutely bursting with blue and red fruits, this wine is a true delight for the senses.

Upon first sip, the concentration of flavors is deceptive, as the wine starts out juicy and full of air. However, after a few minutes in the glass, the weight and texture become apparent, and this wine transforms into an extremely serious and powerful expression of Pinot Noir. The tannins are firm and provide a real grip on the palate.

The finish is simply gorgeous, with a savory quality that is often found in the best Burgundies. The weightlessness of the wine is a brilliant veil to the power and depth that lies beneath. It is a wine that requires time and patience to fully appreciate, with a drinking window that extends from 2020 to 2032.

Notable wine critics have also praised the 2018 Clos de Tart Grand Cru. Decanter awarded it a score of 98, praising its beautiful texture and the balance between weight and power. Burghound rated it at 94 points, highlighting its refined and complex flavors that will continue to evolve over the next two decades. Vinous gave it a score of 98, describing it as having an exquisite bouquet, wonderful focus, and profound complexity. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate awarded it 92 points, noting its rich aromas, concentration, and the need for patience.
