LA FORGE DE TART 1er CRU
The 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis La Forge de Tart 1er Cru contains 15% whole bunch fruit from the "Ballonge" sub-plot that now enters the final blend. It has a clean and precise bouquet, very pure with more "Pinoté" compared to the Village Cru, greater energy and precision. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannins on the entry and nicely judged acidity. There is a touch of black pepper and bay leaf towards the finish, partly lent by that judicious whole bunch addition and it feels long and tender on the finish. Very fine.
