Ratings & Reviews

95-97 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand Cru will contain 40% whole bunch fruit in the final. It was picked from September 17 until September 22. This blend that I tasted included the young vines at the bottom of the vineyard that may or may not be deselected to make a Forge de Tart (the decision will be made next year). It is also the first vintage that does not include old vines at the northwest corner that were pulled up in spring 2014, due to be replanted in four years' time. It has a very well defined bouquet with cranberry and wild strawberry fruit, fine mineral tones and is quite harmonious with hints of wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied and I feel this has tightened up since I tasted it in September 2015. The fruit also seems a little darker. Blackberry and wild cherry, with a hint of cola and certainly more tangible mineralité on the finish, as you can feel the mouth tingling long after it has bid adieu." - Neal Martin (Dec 2015)
94 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand Cru, Sylvain Pitiot’s final vintage, was picked from September 5 at 22hl/ha. (Incidentally, this was the first year the vineyard was tended organically.) It has a rich, exotic bouquet of macerated red cherries, black olive compote, fig and crushed violets. There is still some new oak to be subsumed here. The burly, powerful palate is full-bodied with saturated tannin, although it does not possess the delineation or mineralité on the finish that Jacques Desvauges has sought. Tasted at Clos de Tart." - Neal Martin (Feb 2019)

94 Points - Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy:
"Clear deep red, rich fruit with a little pepper and spice, attractively succulent. Firm fruit but with very good depth. Attractive length, well judged oak. Fair intensity to this, but the detail is rather hidden at the moment.
" (Sept 2017)

92-94 Points - Allen Meadows' Burghound:
"There is whiff of new wood framing the intensely floral-suffused nose and in particular rose petal and lavender that add elegance to the fresh mix of mostly red and dark currant scents that are trimmed in discreet earth hints. There is a lovely sense of energy to the moderately dense middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a dusty, palate coating and beautifully long finish. At this point in its maturity and with this specific blend of components I would describe the 2014 version as understated and harmonious if less elegant than the 2013 was at the same point. We will of course see what ultimately is bottled but for now this seems very promising." - Jan 15, 2016
