Clos de Tart Grand Cru Monopole

There would be a lot of words to spend about this Domaine, but we only want to give some basic information. To learn more, please visit the estate website and of course any publication concerning the Burgundy fine wine.
Clos de Tart is definitely one of the legendary names in Burgundy, a region in central France, home of the excellence winemaking worldwide. The history of the Domaine dates back to the twelfth century, when in 1141 the Tart Abbey Bernardine sisters, a branch of the nearby Cistercian congregation, founded the estate. Over the centuries there have been only three owners and nowadays the estate belongs to the Mommessin family, unique proprietor of 7,53 hectares in Morey-Saint-Denis, in Cote de Nuits. The vineyard has an altitude varying from 269m to 302m and is encircled with a 1,2km long stone wall. That is why it is the greatest of Burgundy Grand Cru Monopole. The vineyard is 60 years old on average with some plants being over a hundred years old. The management of the Domaine is headed by Mr. Sylvain Pitiot, a person of great experience and professionalism.
The yearly production of the Domaine is around 22 thousand bottles with only two wines: the mythical "Clos de Tart Grand Cru Monopole" and the second wine, "La Forge de Tart" premier Cru. In really important vintages, as it has been for example the 2009, the entire grapes are used for the production of Clos de Tart. Anyway, there are vintages in which there is also the second wine, which has less structure than the Grand Cru and is therefore more easy and ready to drink.
However, both wines have same fermentation and maturation process.
