Lot #120. Mommessin Clos de Tart 2005

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 97 WA.
"Tasted at the pre-dinner vertical to mark Sylvain Pitiot's retirement from the domaine, the 2005 Clos de Tart Grand Cru . . . is bestowed a magnificent bouquet of haunting intensity and purity: wild strawberry and raspberry - every atom infused with mineral/cold stone scents with amazing focus. The palate is simply to die for. Here, a precise lattice of tannin that is incredibly framed with perfect poise and detail, there is a gentle crescendo to an incisive finish that takes your breath away. Could this be Sylvain Pitior's greatest achievement alongside the 2002? Astonishingly fine - très grand cru, très délicieux." Wine Advocate #226, Oct 2015
Notes: Very lightly scuffed capsules.
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $700
