A very fresh, restrained and attractively ripe nose of spiced plum, earth, violets and rose petal. There is excellent richness and volume to the gorgeously textured, concentrated and mouth coating medium weight plus flavors that display outstanding intensity on the very firm, persistent and beautifully well-balanced finish that displays a touch of youthful asperity. This is also quite firmly structured though it's clear that this is neither as ripe nor as firm as the 2012 version though it is a bit more refined. Jan 2014, www.burghound.com, Drink: 2026+

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2011 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has a distinctly more herbaceous and leafier nose than the 2012. Here we are walking in woodland around mid-October, the damp ground strewn with brown leaves. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly more rustic tannins than the 2012, but there is tremendous depth here and it seems to gain complexity toward the finish that gently fans out. It is another elegant Clos de Tart that will drink over the next 20 years. Sep 2015, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2016-2035

(13.5% natural alcohol here): Medium red. Perfumed, discreet nose combines red cherry, spices, pepper and herbs. Juicy and light on its feet, but lacking the richness, depth and sweetness of Clos de Tart in riper years. Finishes with good breadth, hints of oak-derived coffee and chocolate and a slight dryness. Winemaker Sylvain Pitiot, who made it clear to me that he prefers Burgundies with black fruits, describes 2011 as "correct--a vin de transition." Mar 2014, www.vinous.com
