Tasting note: This is quite floral with pretty and very spicy aromas of violets, plum, black cherry and plum liqueur scents. There is a relatively refined mouth feel to the powerful, intense and solidly well-concentrated medium weight plus flavors that possess a subtle trace of minerality on the balanced and impressively long finish. In the context of recent vintages, 2013 is not a huge vintage for this wine but it certainly produced a robust version.

Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2013 Clos de Tart Grand Cru has similar intensity to the nascent 2014, but here there is more black fruit coming through. It is beautifully defined, floral and refined with hints of violet marrying with the fruit profile. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin, a savory, digestif note on the entry, and the acidity finely tuned with a gentle crescendo in the mouth. This might turn out more structured and masculine than the 2014; there is a touch of meatiness lingering on the aftertaste. It is one of those intriguing Clos de Tart, medium rather than long-term potential.

As usual, I tasted Clos de Tart in its separate fermentations and then in an approximate blend. The late harvest produced a dark, brooding Clos de Tart endowed with fabulous depth. Dark and deeply spiced to the core, the 2013 is incredibly vivid in the glass, with gorgeous interplay between the old-vine fruit and aromatic nuances from the whole clusters. Cool, mineral and savory-inflected notes inform the bracing, invigorating finish. There is a lot to like in the 2013 Clos de Tart.
