Tasting Note:

Jacques Devauges’ full debut vintage. Earlier picking, gentler extractions and 80% new oak rather than 100% have made for a beautifully elegant Clos de Tart, even in a ripe powerful vintage such as 2015. Yes there is flesh and fruit, silkiness and generosity, yet the flavours are so clear-cut, floating and fine. This is no powerhouse, the ripe but bright fruit flavours are intense but glide across the palate. Notes of ripe red cherry and bramble fruits, griotte, sloe and kirsch. There is a wonderfully floral touch and a twist of fresh alpine strawberry and mineral that give the finish a refreshing twist. A wine of beauty, seduction and haunting elegance all in one. A blend of seven lots with a large proportion of whole bunches – 40%. The younger vines (25 years old!) were so good that there was no La Forge de Tart cuvee made this year, everything went into the Grand Vin.
