Founded in 1141 by a convent of Cistercian nuns, Clos de Tart is one of the oldest and most historically significant domaines in Burgundy. Located in the Côte de Nuits near the village of Morey-Saint-Denis, the 7.5 hectare Clos de Tart vineyard has remained fully intact since its creation, and it is presently the largest Grand Cru property in Burgundy as well as one of only six Grand Cru monopoles. In October of 2017, Clos de Tart was purchased by the owner of Chateau Latour for an undisclosed sum, and because of this, we believe that future releases will surely increase in price. As such, we are thrilled to present an opportunity to acquire large format bottlings of the newly released 2016 vintage at the lowest retail prices in the country:
Clos de Tart Grand Cru Monopole 2016 1500ml - $1,189
Clos de Tart Grand Cru Monopole 2016 3000ml - $3,325
97 Points Wine Advocate "The superb 2016 Clos de Tart Grand Cru confirms the promise it showed from barrel, unfurling in the glass with a striking bouquet of raspberries, rose petals, blood orange, black tea, spices and smoked meats. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, pure and ample, with a deep core of vibrant, searingly intense fruit that entirely cloaks its structuring chassis of satiny tannin, concluding with a long and captivatingly floral finish. More elegant and transparent than the richer and fleshier 2015, this is an exceptional vintage for Clos de Tart. That there are fully 27,000 bottles makes this one of Burgundy's rare confluence of quality and quantity. (WK)" (04/2019)
