Domaine du Clos de Tart Grand Cru Ex-Domaine 2012

$1,195.00

Expressive nose developing red berry notes and a light oaky hint. Tender and delicate, with an elegant structure, this is a wine with a lot of charm. Good ageing potential.

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot’s retirement from the domaine, the 2012 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has just a wonderful nose with more fruit intensity than the 2013, so pure and feminine with ebullient raspberry preserve and strawberry notes, sheer pinot√©! The palate is beautifully structured with fine tannin, tensile, refined and aristocratic. There is a brilliant focus here and an extraordinary sustained finish that leaves you desperate for the next sip. What it shares in common with the 2008 Clos de Tart Grand Cru is that it is predestined to be overshadowed by the 2009 and 2010. That should not be the case – it is a quite brilliant articulation of the Clos. Bon vin!
