Mommessin Clos de Tart Grand Cru Pinot Noir 2003

$375

The 2003 Clos de Tart, tasted at the estate and then again from an acquired bottle to witness the effect of air on it, is an outstanding, potentially exceptional wine. That being said, I can't help but wonder how magnificent it would have been if it had not been acidified. It is dark ruby/purple-colored and bursts from the glass with black cherries, blackberries, and roasting spices. Intensely powerful, this wine boasts superb concentration and depth. A mouth-coating, full-bodied, thick effort, it slathers the palate with black fruits. This sappy, chunky wine possesses an extremely long finish with firm, hard tannin. Air was kind to this 2003, bringing elegance to its muscular nature, and slightly sweetening its tannin. Projected maturity: 2010-2025+. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

A monster. Massive, ripe, oaky, dense, overwhelming. Dr. pepper, black cherry, menthol, spice, tannic, ultra ripe, lactic. An impressive and undeniably delicious wine, but unrecognizable as Burgundy.
