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.
Jancis Robinson Extremely inviting. Ripe fruit and intense mocha aroma and fully spiced. Thick and full in the mouth, the deepest pile tannins of the wines tasted in this flight but very smooth. Rich and voluptuous and dense with no hint of overripeness of fruit or harshness of tannin and just enough freshness. Unexpectedly delicious and hedonistic though less elegance and finesse than the rest of the flight. Chewy and mouthfilling and fragrant on the finish with a warmth at the very end. 18/20 Points (JH) (6/2009)
Enjoy with roasted duck with lentils and caramelised apple.
