Medium red, rather translucent, with some apparent age. Rather herbaceous, black tea, hints of green with some mature red fruit, sour cherries and dried flowers. Rather meaty and austere. Palate seemed rather disjointed, with lack of structure and acidity. Some dried plums, prunes and grapefruit, but again, there was some unpleasant grass flavours to this wine. Tart and sour with some time. Not a good 2004.
Tastevin (Racquet Club Chicago): Unbelievably green on the nose and palate. Searing notes of cut grass and stems. There was some earth, iron and red fruit, but this was almost completely obstructed by the green notes.

(Domaine du Clos de Tart Clos de Tart) Medium cherry red color with pale meniscus; tart cherry, hibiscus and rhubarb nose; tight, concentrated, cherry, tart red fruit and minerals palate;-medium-plus finish 92+ pts.
(Domaine du Clos de Tart Clos de Tart) Nice dark pink color; deep strawberry compote and vanilla oak nose that draws one in; tight, sweet tannic red fruit with good acidity; long finish (needs 7-10 years)
(Mommessin Clos du Tart) A wide, creamy and interesting nose. Versus 'La Forge' this is much silkier and has so many more facets - more intense and certainly more complex. Lovely, lingering finish. My style of wine - super.
