Domaine du Clos de Tart is a great name in Burgundy red wines. This Côte de Nuits estate has a monopoly on the eponymous Clos de Tart Grand Cru appellation. Located in the commune of Morey-Saint-Denis, the vineyard is a single block. Ancient and prestigious, Domaine du Clos de Tart cultivates a 900-year-old viticultural heritage. Never parcelled out, this climate has known only four owners since its foundation in the 12th century. Today, Domaine du Clos de Tart belongs to Artémis Domaines, owned by the Pinault family.

Geographical location of Clos de Tart

Domaine du Clos de Tart is located in Morey-Saint-Denis, in the heart of the Côte de Nuits. With a surface area of 7.53 hectares, the Clos de Tart appellation is the largest monopole classified as a Grand Cru among Burgundy wines. Although constituting a single unit, the estate's vineyards are subdivided into parcels. These are defined according to soil type and vine age. Unlike neighboring estates, the vines are planted along a north-south axis. The vineyards are planted exclusively with Pinot Noir grapes.

Clos de Tart wines

The estate's vines are grown organically. Vinification takes place in wooden vats, after partial destemming. Each plot is vinified separately, to ensure the best possible quality. The wine is then aged in oak barrels for 18 months.

Clos de Tart Grand Cru is a red wine for long ageing. However, recent vintages tend to produce a wine that can be drunk younger. Alongside this Grand Cru, the domaine produces two other red wines. A Morey-Saint-Denis Premier Cru La Forge de Tart and a Morey-Saint-Denis Village. As these wines are made from declassified cuvées, the number of bottles varies greatly from one vintage to the next.
