Domaine du Clos de Tart La Forge de Tart 2014

$450.00

The second wine of the Clos de Tart estate, this is a Grand Cru wine, under a 1er Cru label. The winery was founded  in 1141 by the Tart Abbey Bernardine sisters, a branch of the nearby Cistercian congregation. Since then it has changed owners 4 times. The Forge de Tart is made from vines under 20 years old, and sees no whole bunches in the winemaking. This is a great insight into a historic winery.
