offer of the day – clos de tart 2009

Update 21.9.2020(16.3.2011)billn

CLOS DE TART 2009 – Subscription

CLOS DE TART Grand Cru 2009 75cl 298.00 (Swiss francs)
CLOS DE TART Grand Cru 2009 150cl 626.00

In current circumstances this is too rich for my blood, but the valid question is: Given that this is cheaper than most Musignys, are you tempted?

On a related note, the first 2010 subscription offer came through the post las week, interesting pricing – more in the Spring Burgundy Report – hopfully sometime during the 1st week of April.

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    The Musigny of Prieur was “en primeur” for way less than that, but was sold out rather quickly. To answer your question: no I am not tempted. The last Clos de Tart I bought (2003) was about half that price… I would rather buy a nice Richebourg, for less than that. And as I like very much the Clos des Lambrays, that was my pick in 2009 for the Morey St Denis area (with some Clos de la Roche from Lignier-Michelot), for a fraction of the price of the Clos de Tart.
    Primeur 2010! Burgundy??

    Producer, producer! I have been told by Claude Kolm that he knew of some Bourgogne from top producers he would enjoy more than Grand crus from not so good producers!…and rightly so…

    …so I am glad for my financial sanity that I follow his advice and buy neither Musigny nor Clos de Tart…

    This wine/vineyard has the potential to be great – and I use that word in its Clive Coates context.

    I’m not in the market but I’ve heard good things about this wine, and will have the opportunity to compare it to 09 DRC/de Vogüé/Rousseau and others next week so will be able to finally make up my own mind – and it’s cheaper than many of those 🙂

    The terroir is very different to Lambrays and indeed much of Morey – so should have more guts than its neighbour, though clearly the winemaking emphasises that in it’s youth. The 01 is the last vintage I bought, and at about one-third the current offer price – that was a sensational buy!

    [As an aside currency is a wonderful thing; my 2001 purchase was £70 per bottle, today that’s ‘just’ 105 Swiss francs, but at the exchange rate of January 2003 (it was an EP purchase) it was 160 Francs, add UK duty etc and it’s more like 190 francs (£85). So in Swiss francs the price has really increased from 190 to 300 or 58%. In GBP, converting the Swiss price of today, that’s now £200 or an increase of 135%!]
