1985 Clos de Tart

Domaine du Clos de Tart

flagBurgundy / France

Preceding the era and rejuvenation under Sylvain Pitiot, the 1985 Clos de Tart has always been one of the best vintages from the era. It has an unexpectedly youthful bouquet that is not complex vis-a-vis recent vintages, but contains vivacious red currant and raspberry fruit undiminished by the passing years, tinged with iodine and violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, quite sturdy tannins that lend this an atypically masculine personality for a 1985. This is unapologetically “old-school” Burgundy – there is nothing wrong with that, and I can imagine it cruising for another decade at least. Drink now-2020+. Tasted November 2013.
