Mommessin Clos de Tart 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Visual Aspect: A beautiful dark ruby color. Nose: A nose of great finesse, and aromas of red fruits: strawberry, raspberry and blackcurrant. Palate: Extremely polished and rich with an impressive spicy, berry character and tons of ultra-fine tannins. Food Pairing: It is an elegant companion to red meat, cheese and game. This magic wine is always the center of attention at any meal.

This is enormously ripe and explodes from the glass with warm wood-framed aromas of coffee, tobacco, plum, prune, smoked meat and dried herbs that introduce massively constituted though not incredibly structured flavors of serious size, weight and depth that are blessed with buckets of extract that completely buffer the firm and ripe tannic backbone. This is not my style but it's not imbalanced or unduly warm and it's a wine that will live for 50 years, perhaps longer. Like the '05, it's clear that my first in-bottle review was too optimistic in terms of the initial drinking window and as such, I have extended it.

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 cant 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 effo

Aromas of tar and smoke with very pure concentrated blackberry and spice notes underneath mark this exotic seductive red. Silky and complex it caresses the palate. It needs a little time to absorb the oak but this is long and has great potential. Best from 2009 through 2030. 1 250 cases made. Wine Spectator.

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 cant 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 Parkers Wine Advocate.
