changing the guard at clos de tart…

It’s en Français but here is a great post by Jacques Perrin, covering the recent Clos de Tart tastings, celebrating the vintages and retirement of Sylvain Pitiot as winemaker. There will another, similar, tasting at his UK importers in October, but unfortunately I’m fully booked!

Look out for the floral descriptor ‘gentiane’ (gentian) in the notes – that’s French-taster-speak for pyrazine 😉 Anyway, a great map of the Clos is included – it’s not attributed, but I assume it was directly the handiwork of Sylvain…


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