Clos de Tart

The Bernardine nuns of the Abbey of Tart, a dependency of the famous Abbey of Citeaux, founded Clos de Tart in 1141.

In 1791, Clos de Tart became the property of the Marey-Monge family, one of whose most famous members was Monge, founder of the École Polytechnique in Paris and a mathematician who accompanied Napoléon to Egypt.  Then it was sold in 1932 to the Mommessin family, originally from the Mâconnais, who are the sole owners to this day. It is a single parcel vineyard of 7.53 hectares located on the finage of Morey-Saint-Denis in Côte de Nuits.

Since its creation, this Clos has never been parcelled out and is today, in Bourgogne, the largest Monopole classified in Grand Cru.

It's a single 300-metre-long, 250-metre-wide parcel with an east-south-east exposure, planted north-south perpendicular to the line of the slope to better combat erosion. The plot is surrounded by a 1.2 km stone wall, hence the name Clos.

The soil is clay-limestone with a majority of limestone, a perennial condition that is key to France's great vineyards. The entire vineyard has an average age of 60 years, and some vines are over 100 years old.

Description Clos de Tart "La Forge de Tart" Morey-Saint-Denis 2017.

Morey-Saint-Denis 1er cru "La Forge de Tart" 2017 is a Premier Cru from Bourgogne.

Second wine from Clos de Tart Grand Cru, this wine comes from the Monopole's youngest vines. Volumes produced therefore vary from year to year.  

In order to enrich the wine's range of aromas, 15% whole bunches are deposited in the vat before vinification.

Maturing lasts 18 months in barrels, half of which are new. 

The Forge de Tart 2017 offers an aromatic bouquet marked by red fruit and a touch of spice.

The tannic structure is very dense but the tannins are well ripened, leaving no impression of dryness on the palate.

The wine is dynamic and the finish has plenty of bite.

It will be appreciated from an early age. 

It will pair perfectly with red meats but also full-bodied cheeses.
