  • Medium ruby throughout, quite primary looking. First impression was tangy red fruit subsequently complemented by wonderful spiciness and a touch of wintergreen. Big wine for Burgundy with a strong underpinning of oak which does not interfere with the flavors. Dark red fruit, spice as noted on the nose, good acidity, and ripe tannins still to be incorporated. Very good but still somewhat blockish and foursquare. Well constituted but not destined to be a wine of grace or tremendous finesse. That said, I am confident that it will continue to improve.

  • Clear ruby color. Brambly, complex nose. Red fruit dominates - strawberry and cherry stones. Still some tannin that needs to resolve. Nice acidity. Still needs time.

  • @Fred_Lund: Clos de Tart 98 delivers big time for the vintage. Mature nose and lovely deep complex fruit.

  • En helt underbar mogen doft med komplex frukt, rosor, violer, tryffel, till och med lite apelsinskal. På bara doften skulle jag gissat på en riktigt mogen bra Barolo från typ 1982.
    I smaken är det däremot ingen tvekan om att det är en Bourgogne. Tyvärr så kan det inte i smaken leva upp till denna helt magiska doft. Men inget snacka om att det är ett bra vin

  • Dark red, with a slightly murky and cloudy look. This showed some age on the appearance. Nose was gorgeous, drop dead gorgeous. Lots of rose petals, violets and fresh summer flowers. Matured fruits, leather, earth and some truffles. There was so much complexity on the nose alone, this was well worth its weight in gold. Sadly, or disappointingly the palate really really struggled to live up to the early expectations. Prunes, raisins, sour cherries, tartness, some meat and rusticity. This really lacked the acidity as well, so it appeared slightly flabby. But this really went well short on the mid and back palate, lacking any form of Grand Cru complexity from such an excellent monopole. On the nose alone, this deserves a 98, but I'm really averaging it out here, because I'd look at no more than 86-88 on the palate. Maybe my expectations were high, but this is a Grand Cru, from Clos de Tart, from a good enough vintage. I'm expecting a wine to really excite me. I'm hoping this might improve slightly over a little more time, but considering the secondary characteristics and profile showed itself tonight, I'm doubting it. Drink now, and enjoy the bouquet.
