Neil BECKETT, Burgundy 2018
LA FORGE DE TART 1er CRU
features in “Top wines of Morey-St-Denis 2016”
Fine medium deep red, more crimson than purple, consistent with the past. There is a really complex nose to be teased out. A little touch of old rose, a little bit of strawberry, more fresh than crushed, more ethereal and less overtly managed than before, with good underlying red fruit. No black fruit here at all. Graceful pure silk texture, some liquorice on the palate though the fruit remains red, light but fine acidity, tannins completely silky, pure and persistent. Lovely lacy detail throughout. Bravo.
