Domaine Mommessin

Since his arrival to Domaine Mommessin in 1995, Sylvain Pitiot has enabled Clos de Tart to really shine through careful attention to qualitative parcel selection. He is often one of the last domains to harvest in his quest for grapes that will produce rich, lush wines with ripe tannins. The Clos de Tart style is concentrated, powerful, imprinted with the mark of oak ageing.

Tasting Notes

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2000 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has a slightly shallow bouquet compared to other vintages of similar age. What it lacks in intensity it compensates in terms of brightness and precision. This is a joyous nose that doesn't really care too much about any deficiencies. The palate is medium-bodied and is actually superior to the nose with pleasant, fleshy red fruit; it is spicy and peppery in the mouth, linear and long. This is far more satisfying than I presupposed - the kind of grand cru you yearn to drink and not intellectualize over. Bon vin (pour la millésime). (NM) (10/2015)
