*Cellar Selection* Big and tannic, while at the same time potentially rich and smooth, this is, as always, an impressive wine. It has weight and dense texture. A solid wine that shows great potential; for now, revel in the plum juice and final acidity that provide a bright counterpoint to the solid, brooding structure.  (12/2010)

Intense aromas of graphite and mineral make an immediate impact, with black cherry, black currant and spice flavors adding depth and dimension. This has concentration and a juicy texture, pushing the long, peppery aftertaste. Shows fine harmony and expression overall.   (10/2010)

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2007 Clos de Tart Grand Cru is more easy-going, more nonchalant than the 2008 with bright redcurrant and cranberry fruit mixed with a subtle marine influence; although, it does not have the thrust, the momentum of the ensuing vintage. The palate is balanced with plenty of sappy red fruit. There is something almost Oriental about this Clos de Tart - touches of Hoisin and spice developing towards the finish that has melted in recent years, and become more fleshier and corpulent. I would drink this now and over the next decade. (NM)   (10/2015)

 

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

An expressive and quite cool nose blends floral notes, discreet wood, spice hints and ripe black Pinot and plum that seamlessly intermingle with rich, delicious and impressively concentrated big-bodied flavors that possess really lovely acid/fruit/tannin balance, all wrapped in a complex, serious and palate staining finish. The subtle influence of the stem tannins gives the very rich, indeed almost lush finish an appealing sense of lift. This displays excellent potential to develop over the next 10 to 15 years and it should last 30.  (1/2010)

Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like black raspberry, mocha and spices on the nose, with a hint of dried fruits. Then opulent, sweet and highly concentrated on the palate, with cherry, mineral and licorice flavors sexed up by a note of molten chocolate. This lacks the peppery high notes of the young 2008 but the texture is more plush today. Finishes with very fine-grained tannins and enough energy to ensure an extended evolution in bottle.   (3/2010)

 

Jancis Robinson

Deep bright garnet. Slightly darker fruit character than some recent vintages. Firm and dark, rich and powerful. Peppery. Really long. Tight, determined and focused. 18/20 points. (JH) (6/2009)
