Clos de Tart: 1947-2019 vertical tasting

Burgundy's majestic grand cru monopole of Clos de Tart is set to enter a dazzling new chapter. A remarkable vertical tasting of its wines gave Charles Curtis MW the opportunity to chart its history and assess its standing today.

‘The Clos de Tart is a dream,’ explained Frédéric Engerer at a recent vertical tasting of its wines. Engerer is the managing director of Artémis Domaines (owner of Château Latour) which purchased Clos de Tart in 2018. As Engerer said: ‘When you own Château Latour, you need to have a very special vineyard in Burgundy. Clos de Tart was number one on the list’.

Engerer has put together a cohesive team with lightning speed and managed a staggering investment from Artemis’ principal François Pinault, turning this ancient property into one of the stars of the Côte de Nuits.
