Community Tasting Notes (average 94.4 pts. and median of 94 pts. in 20 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by mbcellar on 6/30/2015: Aroma of strawberries, raspberry with hint of lavender. (242 views)
 Tasted by chablis28 on 12/6/2014 & rated 93 points: My good fortune to get a taste of this one thanks to Steve. Right now, as you'd expect this is still very tightly wound, relatively closed and years from its true drinking window. If you own 3 or less of these don't touch them until 2020+. I think this will truly be rocking around 2025-2030. Right now can't say it delivers much pleasure. The oak is in good check but the structure is out in front of the fruit and much is hidden at this point. I hoping someone pours me some of this in 2020 though! I heard it had been decanted for a couple hours too. With much more time, this could reach Burgundy perfection as you sense its power and depth. (1731 views)
 Tasted by pablopilot on 12/6/2014 & rated 95 points: A little bit of chalkiness, very fine tannin and some chunky redness. Very Clos de Tart... (1425 views)
 Tasted by rocknroller on 12/6/2014 & rated 93 points: Annual Tasting Group Holiday Party (La Belle Vie, Mpls): I can't add much more than Chablis28 and I agree with the comment that it is pretty tightly wound. The few things I wrote down were muted nose, raspberry, leather, and LONG. 93(+)pts. (1897 views)
 Tasted by Sycamore on 6/23/2013 & rated 94 points: Likely better in 5+ years time, though fantastic now. Extraordinarily well-balanced. Tinge of heat on the nose, but nothing to worry about. Great mouthfeel. Fantastic mix of still-vibrant fruit and emerging secondary components. Excellent stuff and easily the most pleasing CdT that we've had for some time, regardless of vintage. (4804 views)
 Tasted by pclin on 3/12/2013 & rated 95 points: Probably the best Clos de Tart in today's vertical tasting. Good nose. Notes of dark berry, spice wood, and wet earth. Sweet and smooth tannins. Long with good acidity level. No hint of alcohol. Good structure and complexity. Yum! 94-95 pts (4559 views)
 Tasted by bon vivant on 8/18/2012: Served double blind and this was mighty tasty stuff. Lots of concentration and extraction, still rather primary but very well balanced and with a good sappy mouth filling texture. Definitely hedonistic and ripe, a curvy silhouetted, classy young lass... that said, it stays focused and it never looses it's identity. This will be a fun wine to follow as it evolves. Thank you Mitch ! (4935 views)
 Tasted by eromer on 3/26/2012 & rated 95 points: Deep color. Massive structure. Not at all closed down at this time but it is very premature to drink (although highly enjoyable).
It's going to be huge. (5315 views)
 Tasted by samil on 3/22/2012: good potential, but too young to drink. It was a mistake to open these bottles at this time. (5277 views)
 Tasted by St Paul on 3/16/2012 & rated 97 points: Lovely perfumed nose with deep red fruit. Perfect structure in the mouth. A strawberry explosion that goes on forever. Can this be the best Clos de Tart ever made? (3087 views)
 Tasted by Tavastgatan on 3/16/2012 & rated 97 points: King of vintages. 2005 is magical and always the best wine in any Burgundy vertical. This Clos de Tart is close to perfect. Massive structure, perfect acidity, divine fruit, all in absolut balance. This magnum lasted all night and kept improving. Grand Vin. (3703 views)
 Tasted by gnosis on 2/12/2012: Tasted in a line-up of vintages 09, 08, 05, 02, 00. Just at the point of turning, evolving. You can start to see the excellence of the vintage, with balance, power, great structure, fruit and heady notes. Can drink now, but given the potential that the 02 and 00 showed, I would wait till the 10 yr mark min to open this. Great note shown on the wine page in the "professional tasting history" section by Bill Nason, "Deep colour. Very tight aromas with dark, creamily oaked fruit notes at the core, slowly releasing raspberry notes. A little prickly carbon dioxide then tongue saturating flavours of coffee and roast nuts. Lots of structure, but balance too. As it loses the CO2 it becomes close to a complete wine." Pretty much my same impression, minus the CO2. The wine had been open for a while, and also in the glass for a while, so didn't notice this. (2214 views)
 Tasted by Loren Sonkin on 11/12/2009 & rated 92 points: Clos de tarts and Vintage Madeira Tasting at John V.'s: An impressive wine and not totally shut down as many 05's are. Pretty purple ruby in color. The nose is tight with cherries and powdered cherries. Sweet and balanced. Lots of cherries. Very deep, with most of the flavors lurking just a bit to deep to quite pick out. Like looking into the ocean from a pier, you just can't quite make out what is swimming at the bottom. But it is obvious there is something there. In the end, this will be the best wine (93-95), but for tonight, it still provides plenty of pleasure. (5952 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 10/9/2009 & rated 93 points: Pas trop marqué par le bois, j’ai étrangement moins aimé que le 2004. Du pinot bien mur et massif, qui ne fait pas dans la dentelle. M’est apparu comme un vin qui veut trop en faire, sans dégager de réelle magie, quoiqu’objectivement on ne puisse nier qu’il soit bien fait. Mais à ce prix on s’attend à plus. (5134 views)
 Tasted by Jeremy Holmes on 9/9/2009: Ridiculously young and behaving like a barrel sample just prior to bottling. Super powerful red and dark fruits are underpinned by some spicy oak. It is a big, dense monster that explodes in the mouth but is not too heavy. Way too young but one can get a glimpse of the harnessed power and a bit of a sense of how good it may be in several decades. (3198 views)
 Tasted by Paul D on 10/21/2008: Clos de Tart and Clos de Lambrays with Anthony Hanson MW (Institute of Directors, Pall Mall, London): Deep ruby, narrow pale purple rim. Nose shows ripe, darker purple fruit, vanilla. Very intense, slightly smoky with just a hint of sauvage complexity about it already. Fuller, riper and richer than the Lambrays on the palate, a fair amount of oak but there is plenty of fruit here as well as mouth-coating, dense tannins, but it all seems in balance with electric acidity carrying a mouth-coating, exceptionally long, smooth finish. Lovely, and certainly one for the long term. WOTN ***(**). (6406 views)
 Tasted by gorm on 2/29/2008 & rated 96 points: Uncorked DK tasting: 2005 Burgundy (Karlebo Kro): Tight nose of extremely dark fruits. In the mouth this is tight, yet intense, with a high level of acidity and frightingly dark and concentrated fruit. Also minerals that seems to cut like a bullit. Still seems to hold everything in balance. Probably a bit closed, but what a beast. Best "value" of the evening. Group average: 96.1. (7382 views)
 Tasted by Serge Birbrair on 2/23/2008: Big and massive, drinking well today and should last for a long time to come. Concentrated , no see thru, long finish. (6303 views)
 Tasted by tacman on 9/23/2007 & rated 93 points: B'Day dinner at Chez Nous; way too young, but I had to try one. A massive, tight wine, in time this will probably rival the '96 (6708 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 1/15/2007: Tasted twice in the last month. This is absolutely fantastic stuff. Deep, gorgeously fruited nose of blue-black fruit, with substantial underlying structure. Fantastic balance for such a big wine. I would suspect this will have a very long life... A knock-out. (6470 views)

(Clos du Tart Clos du Tart) Deep colour. Very tight aromas with dark, creamily oaked fruit notes at the core, slowly releasing raspberry notes. A little prickly carbon dioxide then tongue saturating flavours of coffee and roast nuts. Lots of structure, but balance too. As it loses the CO2 it becomes close to a complete wine.

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Burgundy

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
