Tasting Notes

More evident wood is present on the mentholated nose of super-spicy and quite floral essence of poached plum and cassis-scented nose. There is a beguiling sense of refinement and underlying tension to the delicious middle weight plus flavors that culminate in a dusty, palate coating and beautifully complex finish. The 2018 Clos de Tart is not quite as concentrated as it usually is but it still has the stuffing to improve over the next 20 years and it should hold for many years after that.

Score: 92/94Allen Meadows, Burghound.com (77), January 2020

The 2018 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was picked from August 30, the earliest on record, with some previously included parcels now relegated to the Premier Cru. The blend was made at the end of May. With approximately 60% whole-bunch fruit and matured in around 80% new oak (this figure will probably decrease in the future). this has quite a floral bouquet with pressed violets and rose petals infusing the red berry fruit. There is just a hint of balsamic in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit on the entry and fine acidity. Quite saline and spicy in the mouth, delivering satisfying depth toward the finish. This is a very capable Clos de Tart, though one that signposts even better vintages in the future as various improvements come into play.
