These wines are tasted at the halfway point in their maturation, racked and blended, and then put back into cask to finish ageing. The 2019 La Forge is delicious, with ripe black fruit on the nose, a dense texture and a luxurious, silky finish. (Drink between 2022-2029)

It has a clean and precise bouquet, very pure with more "Pinoté" compared to the Village Cru, greater energy and precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry and nicely judged acidity. There is a touch of black pepper and bay leaf towards the finish, partly lent by that judicious whole bunch addition and it feels long and tender on the finish. Very fine. -- Neal Martin

There is better volume and richness to the attractively textured and refined medium-bodied flavors that brim with dry extract and a subtle minerality on the balanced, long and bitter cherry pit-inflected finale. This needs to develop more depth but considering the underlying terroir, that shouldn't present any significant problems.

Medium to full-bodied, lively and elegant, it's pretty and perfumed, with melting tannins, succulent acids and a saline finish. This is the most youthfully harmonious Forge de Tart that I can remember tasting. - WK
