Clos de Tart : Clos de Tart Grand cru Monopole 2014

The outstanding aromatic expression of Pinot Noir in a great Burgundy wine with unparalleled freshness

The estate

Clos de Tart is a unique Burgundy estate owing to its 900 years of rich history. Today, it is the Pinault family, known for their love of historical estates such as Château Latour in Pauillac, who takes close care of the grounds at the Clos. As such, significant renovation work has been carried out in order to enhance the estate’s exceptional architectural heritage. Amongst other things, a new winery was inaugurated in 2019 and this marvel of modernity paved the way for haute couture winemaking, bringing the estate to new heights of excellence.

The vineyard

The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand cru Monopole is made from plots in the Clos de Tart vineyard, located at the heart of Côte de Nuits. The pinot noir vines, aged by 60 years on average, are laid out from north to south and are deeply rooted in soils which vary between limestone, clay, pebbles, gravel and marl. This homogeneous exposure and complex geology led the owners to demarcate the Clos into 12 different microclimates, all harvested separately. To preserve this precious terroir, Clos de Tart has been cultivated with biodynamic agriculture since 2016, obtaining the Biodyvin certification in 2019.

The wine

The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand cru Monopole is a Grand Cru Monopole, a most prestigious denomination. In fact, the Grand Cru classification only brings together terroirs which produces the rarest wines. The Clos de Tart has the particular characteristic of being the largest Grand Cru Monopole in Burgundy, with its sometimes 100-year-old vines which cover 7.53 hectares. Regarding the ‘Monopole’ aspect, this implies that the vineyard has never been subdivided during handovers, something rare for Burgundy.

The vintage

The 2014 vintage was characterised by varied weather conditions throughout the year, but which produced wines with a charming character. Winter and spring, marked by mild temperatures, brought about early vine budding, with continued subsequent quick development. The excellent climate in June brought about an equally early flowering. However, the rest of the summer season turned out to be cooler and cloudier, slowing down the grapes’ ripening process. The dry and sunny September brought about the perfect conditions for the berries to reach a perfect state of ripeness.

Winemaking and ageing

After the harvests, which took place from 18 to 22 September, the best grapes of the Pinot Noir variety were taken to the cellar to begin a greatly precise winemaking process. Malolactic fermentation ended on June 2015, after which the wine aged for 17 months before being bottled in March 2016.


Pinot Noir (100%).



The aromatic bouquet conveys a beautiful intensity, sustained by a balance between red fruits and notes of spice.


The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand cru Monopole is a great wine from Burgundy with unparalleled freshness. Charming and elegant, this bottling with ripe tannins magnifies the aromatic expression of Pinot Noir.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2014 Clos de Tart Grand Cru will contain 40% whole bunch fruit in the final. It was picked from September 17 until September 22. This blend that I tasted included the young vines at the bottom of the vineyard that may or may not be deselected to make a Forge de Tart (the decision will be made next year). It is also the first vintage that does not include old vines at the northwest corner that were pulled up in spring 2014, due to be replanted in four years' time. It has a very well defined bouquet with cranberry and wild strawberry fruit, fine mineral tones and is quite harmonious with hints of wet limestone. The palate is medium-bodied and I feel this has tightened up since I tasted it in September 2015. The fruit also seems a little darker. Blackberry and wild cherry, with a hint of cola and certainly more tangible mineralité on the finish, as you can feel the mouth tingling long after it has bid adieu.
