Mommessin Clos de Tart 2002

$830.00

 Bright red-ruby. Highly nuanced, expressive nose combines strawberry, raspberry, minerals, lavender, chocolate, underbrush and fennel. Super concentrated, silky and sweet in the mouth but with superb definition and energy. The wine’s sheer density of material completely buffers its 14+% alcohol. Finishes dry and classic, with explosive rising fruit and terrific thrust. The tannins are buried in fruit and soil tones. A great Burgundy.  (3/2005) 95 points Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

 The generous wood this displayed from cask has begun to integrate and is no longer nearly as obvious though at the same time, it is hardly invisible. An expressive and extremely ripe black fruit and plum suffused nose is nuanced by hints of torrefaction, earth and coffee are followed by supple, delicious, round and textured full-bodied flavors that are underpinned by firm tannins and loads of ripe extract. This is a powerful yet detailed wine that does seem to carry its alcohol well with only a trace of finishing warmth. In sum, this is a delicious and unbelievably long wine that bathes the palate in ripe pinot extract though note that it is also quite youthful and will require ample cellar time to arrive at its apogee. Tasted several times with consistent notes.  (10/2013) 93 points Allen Meadows – Burghound
