Mommessin

About Mommessin

The current Domaine Clos de Tart, sole owner and vigneron of this stunning vineyard, is family run by the Mommessins – the Burgundian natives have owned Clos de Tart since 1932 (7 years before it was granted Grand Cru status), and retained sole custody even after the selling of their négociant business to Jean-Claude Boisset.

 

Domaine Clos de Tart crafts a sublime Grand Cru from the best plots and oldest vines of their 7.5 hectares and a deliciously vibrant and elegant Premier Cru from younger vines.

 

Vinification

Sylvain Pitot and his team are singularly focused on producing otherworldly wine to rival the greatest names in Burgundy (of which Clos de Tart is rightly considered one). The magnificent surroundings of this ancient property are finally giving birth to equally magnificent wine vintage after vintage. Matured in 100% new oak – only possible thanks to the extraordinary quality of the fruit – the wines are bottled unfiltered in a low-intervention style of winemaking.

 

The hallowed vineyard is essentially managed organically without the official certification, giving Pitot more flexibility. A vast project was recently undertaken to carefully map out each zone of the 7.5 hectares, analysing their soil types and compositions – each individual plot is now harvested and vinified separately in stainless steel in the domaine’s highly impressive cuvérie, designed by Pitiot himself – a man of many talents!

 

Yields are always kept exceedingly low – well below the permitted maximum through prudent usage of pruning, debudding and occasional green harvesting when necessary. Interestingly, Sylvain Pitiot is an ardent believer in achieving full phenolic ripeness, a tremendous testimony to the vineyard’s ability to retain freshness alongside ripeness, and Clos de Tart is frequently one of the very latest in the region to be harvested.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 1996 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (89)

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 1996 Clos de Tart Grand Cru - which was Sylvain Pitiot's debut vintage - has a surprisingly rich, licorice-tinged bouquet, although it does not have the charm or the pinoté of the 1997. This just seems a little forced compared to others, and it seems to dry a little. The palate is medium-bodied and shows a little more class than the nose, grippy in the mouth with baking powder and white pepper notes, bay leaf and clove. There is a feral aspect to this Clos de Tart, yet there is decent length here. Drink this now and over the next decade. Tasted September 2015.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2001 (1x75cl)

Wine Advocate (92)

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2001 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has a more mature bouquet than the 2002, more rustic perhaps with dried leaves and cold granite scents emerging and mercilessly usurping the red berry fruit. There is something that reminds me of a Pessac-Léognan, curiously enough. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly dry tannin. This is masculine, a little foursquare and impressive in length but beginning to show just a slight attenuation towards the finish. Not a bad Clos du Tart considering the vintage, despite being overshadowed by the exceptional 2002. Maturing with grace and not a hint of pretension. Tasted September 2015.

Wine Enthusiast (98)

A beautiful wine, smooth, polished, with rounded corners. Its intense fruit is balanced and harmonizes well with the sweet tannins, the layers of wood and the red berry flavors. Certainly powerful, it impresses equally with the pleasure it will give in 7–10 years.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2010 (2x75cl)

Wine Advocate (98+)

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2010 Clos de Tart Grand Cru would have been made by angels if not Sylvain Pitiot (angels that had graduated from University of Dijon with a degree in oenology). The nose is so ineffably pure that it is guaranteed to bring a tear to the eye. In a strange way it reminds me of a top Armand Rousseau with its awe-inspiring transparency. The palate is ethereal - divine balance, a gentle grip, a saline edge and poise on the finish that takes your breath away. Iron fist in a velvet glove, etc. This is surely legend in the making.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2013 (3x150cl)

Vinous (95)

The 2013 Clos de Tart Grand Cru was picked from October 8. I prefer the bouquet to that of the more confit-like 2014; this is very fresh and vivacious, offering black cherries mixed with blueberry and light violet aromas, the mineral component more expressive. The palate is medium-bodied with crunchy black fruit on the entry, tinged with graphite. Shows good weight but tightens up toward the back end, suggesting that it may close down. Quite saline on the finish. Give it 7–8 years in bottle. Tasted at Clos de Tart.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2016 (1x150cl)

Vinous (99+)

The 2016 Clos de Tart Grand Cru, cropped at 35hl/ha, is the first year farmed biodynamically. This was completely breathtaking in barrel, and now, in bottle, nothing has changed in that respect. It has an ineffably complex bouquet, not as intense as it showed in barrel yet extremely deep and cerebral, black fruit mingling with forest floor, crushed stone and a touch of sea spray. The palate is perfectly balanced with a deceivingly understated entry, before a wave of black and red fruit crashes over the senses. It is framed by supremely fine tannin, the intensity building toward a crescendo as it fans out. The aftertaste is unbelievably long, remaining in the mouth 60 seconds after the wine has departed. The best ever - simple as that. Tasted at Clos de Tart.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2017 (1x150cl)

Wine Advocate (95)

The 2017 Clos de Tart Grand Cru is a little shut down after its recent bottling, but it is showing beautifully, wafting from the glass with aromas of sweet red berries, plums, wilted rose petals, peonies and dark chocolate, with only hints of the complexity to come with bottle age. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, supple and succulent, with an ample and enveloping core of fruit, powdery tannins and succulent acids, displaying good concentration and concluding with a long and perfumed finish. This is a fine showing for Clos de Tart, and despite its elegance, this 2017 will evidently reward bottle age.

Decanter (98)

Absolutely bursting with blue and red fruits, the concentration is deceptive here, as it starts out juicy and full of air, but after a few minutes in the glass you start to feel the weight and the texture, and this turns into an extremely serious wine with real tannic hold. Gorgeous savoury finish, as you get so often in the best Burgundies, where weightlessness is such a brilliant veil to the power behind. 55% whole cluster.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru 2020 (6x75cl)

Burghound (93-96)

(from vines that average around 60+ years of age; ~50% whole clusters and 65% new wood). Here the more reticent nose is also marked floral in character with its ripe aromas of plum, cassis, black raspberry and plethora of spice nuances. There is excellent size, weight and mid-palate concentration along with almost painful intensity to the big-bodied flavors that brim with sappy dry extract that helps to buffer the very firm tannins shaping the balanced and hugely long finale. This is excellent though note well that this beauty is going to require extended patience. (93-96)/2037+

Wine Advocate (88)

The 2017 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Forge de Tart opens in the glass with a generous bouquet of ripe cherries, berries and rose petals that are framed by a touch of creamy new oak. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, succulent and open, with a charming core of fruit and youthfully chewy tannins that are more evident from bottle than they were from barrel.
