The estate produces two wines, both from Pinot Noir. Clos de Tart's history dates back to a 12th Century abbey constructed by Cistercian nuns of the Notre Dame de Tart order. The vineyard has remained a monopole ever since. In 2017 the domaine was bought by French billionaire François Pinault for a figure thought to be in excess of €225 million ($260 million). Pinault's investment group, Artemis, owns a host of high-profile domaines across France, including Château Grillet in Château Grillet (Condrieu) and Château Latour in Pauillac, Bordeaux, as well as Araujo Estate in California's Napa Valley. The property was previously owned by the Mommessin family, who purchased the estate in 1932. The family sold its négociant business (and name) to Jean-Claude Boisset, of the major Burgundy wine family, although the Mommessin family retained Clos de Tart until its sale to Pinault. The Mommessin brand has relocated to Beaujolais under the Boisset portfolio, while the wines of Clos de Tart ceased to carry the Mommessin name on the label for a period until the takeover in 2017. The vineyard covers 7.5 hectares (18.5 acres) and earned its grand cru status in 1939. Clos de Tart has a southeast exposure and is divided into six blocks with slight differences in soil composition and aspect. Each block is harvested and vinified separately to make the most of the differing microclimates. Vine work, including harvesting and training, is mostly done by hand due to the steep gradient of much of the vineyard. The property also has its own nursery where it cultivates massal selections of its vines for future replanting. The only two wines it produces are the Grand Cru Clos de Tart, and the Premier Cru La Forge de Tart that carries the Morey-Saint-Denis designation.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-03-09T15:48:25-05:00","created_at":"2023-02-26T05:08:13-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_France","LK2502","other_french wine","Other_Wine","Producer_Clos de Tart","Region_Burgundy","Source_CanaWine0123","Type_Red Wine","Varietal_Pinot Noir"],"price":172295,"price_min":172295,"price_max":172295,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42805293351050,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"1997 | Clos de Tart | Mommessin Grand Cru","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":172295,"weight":12247,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":"","requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_allocations":[],"quantity_rule":{"min":1,"max":null,"increment":1}}],"images":["\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_56e0ae68-ed20-4a8c-bc88-b9bbbca1234c.jpg?v=1677408299"],"featured_image":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_56e0ae68-ed20-4a8c-bc88-b9bbbca1234c.jpg?v=1677408299","options":["Title"],"media":[{"alt":"1997 | Clos de Tart | Mommessin Grand Cru at CaskCartel.com","id":24292172464266,"position":1,"preview_image":{"aspect_ratio":0.285,"height":740,"width":211,"src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_56e0ae68-ed20-4a8c-bc88-b9bbbca1234c.jpg?v=1677408299"},"aspect_ratio":0.285,"height":740,"media_type":"image","src":"\/\/caskcartel.com\/cdn\/shop\/products\/23_56e0ae68-ed20-4a8c-bc88-b9bbbca1234c.jpg?v=1677408299","width":211}],"requires_selling_plan":false,"selling_plan_groups":[],"content":"\u003ch2\u003eRed Wine: 1997 | Clos de Tart | Mommessin Grand Cru\u003cbr\u003e\n\u003c\/h2\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThis elegant nectar exudes mouth-watering aromas of cherry, raspberry, liquorice, vanilla, and violet, and takes on spicy nuances with age.
