Ratings & Reviews
"The 2013 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was picked from October 8. I prefer the bouquet to that of the more confit-like 2014; this is very fresh and vivacious, offering black cherries mixed with blueberry and light violet aromas, the mineral component more expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit on the entry, tinged with graphite. Shows good weight but tightens up toward the back end, suggesting that it may close down. Quite saline on the finish. Give it 7–8 years in bottle. Tasted at Clos de Tart."

95 Points - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy:
"Fine bright youthful purple. The nose is a touch crunchier in style than the 2014. Very complete, a nice complement of oak, attractive fruit at the front which then develops more energy behind, really lovely, very full and long and with a fresh crunchy precision. Tasted: November 2015"
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."

94 Points - Burghound:
"This is quite floral with perfumed 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 I like the subtle combination of power and refinement. Refined or not however note that plenty of patience will be required before this reaches its full apogee." - AM (Jan 16, 2016 - Issue 61)
94 Points - Wine Spectator:
"A ripe, flamboyant style, boasting cherry, strawberry and baking spice flavors. Balanced and fresh, with firm tannins shoring up the long finish. Best from 2019 through 2035. 2,000 cases made." — BS (May 31, 2016)
