Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2013 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has similar intensity to the nascent 2014, but here there is more black fruit coming through. It is beautifully defined, floral and refined with hints of violet marrying with the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a savory, digestif note on the entry, and the acidity finely tuned with a gentle crescendo in the mouth. This might turn out more structured and masculine than the 2014; there is a touch of meatiness lingering on the aftertaste. It is one of those intriguing Clos de Tart, medium rather than long-term potential."

93-96 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous Media:
As usual, I tasted Clos de Tart in its separate fermentations and then in an approximate blend. The late harvest produced a dark, brooding Clos de Tart endowed with fabulous depth. Dark and deeply spiced to the core, the 2013 is incredibly vivid in the glass, with gorgeous interplay between the old-vine fruit and aromatic nuances from the whole clusters. Cool, mineral and savory-inflected notes inform the bracing, invigorating finish. There is a lot to like in the 2013 Clos de Tart."

93-95 Points - Stephen Tanzer:
Deep red-ruby. Expressive aromas of black raspberry, spices, stone and pepper. Lush and ripe but with excellent sappy energy to the flavors of dark berries, licorice, flowers and curry powder. Very dense and sweet for the year without being heavy or over the top. Most impressive today on the very long, vibrant finish, which features broad, fine-grained tannins and lovely rising perfume. The thicker 2012 may surpass this wine in the long run, but I have a weakness for Clos de Tart in cooler vintages."

92-94 Points - Burghound:
"This is quite floral with pretty and very spicy aromas of violets, plum, black cherry and plum liqueur scents. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the powerful, intense and solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess a subtle trace of minerality on the balanced and impressively long finish. In the context of recent vintages, 2013 is not a huge vintage for this wine but it certainly produced a robust version." - AM (Issue 57)

91-94 Points - Burghound (2011 Vintage):
"A very fresh, restrained and attractively ripe nose of spiced plum, earth, violets and rose petal. There is excellent richness and volume to the gorgeously textured, concentrated and mouth coating medium weight plus flavors that display outstanding intensity on the very firm, persistent and beautifully well-balanced finish." - Jan 14, 2013

93 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2011 Vintage):

"The 2011 Clos de Tart was bottled three months prior to my visit in early June. Cropped at the beginning of September over four or five days at 28 hectoliters per hectare, Sylvain described the 2011 as a precocious vintage that will be drinkable before others. It has a wonderful, refined, beguilingly pure bouquet of fresh strawberry, black plum and dried rose petals that is more floral than fruit-driven. The palate is nicely structured: open and inviting, the tannins slightly grainy with a finish that is unusually light on its feet and fanning out with crisp strawberry, tart red cherry cherries and a pinch of white pepper for good measure. “C’est un vin de plaisir,” as Sylvain so aptly described it. Drink 2015-2030. " - Neal Martin (Aug 2013)

91-93 Points - Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar (2011 Vintage):
"Bright ruby-red. Aromas of briary black raspberry, wild herbs, licorice, violet, rose and pepper. Smooth, dense and suave; shows a fine-grained texture but seemed to shut down in the glass. Finishes with good medicinal reserve and rather substantial, slightly dusty tannins that coat the front teeth. About half of the lots were vinified with whole clusters." - Stephen Tanzer (Jan/Feb 13)
