A taste of heaven: Clos du Tart
Had a very nice afternoon over at Corney & Barrow's offices tasting a vertical of Clos du Tart. For those unfamiliar with this domaine, it's a monopole (that is, they own the whole Grand Cru vineyard) of 7.5 hectares.
Since 1996, Silvain Pitiot (pictured) has revitalized this great domaine, and now the wines are some of the very best expressions of red Burgundy, up there with DRC and Leroy.
As well as tasting the wines (2007 and 2007 La Forge, 2005, 2002, 2001, 1999), I had a nice chat with Sylvain. I'll be posting notes very soon; suffice to say I was thrilled by these wines.
