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

94 points Decanter The antithesis, at present, of the 2003: fresh, lively and aromatically precise, with a cologne-like charm, with a smooth, pure, open cascade of flavour on the palate. It has everything except extreme concentration, but when the parts come together with the liveliness and grace with which these do, you won’t feel the lack. Splendid, beautifully proportioned Clos de Tart. (AJ) (4/2016)
