William KELLEY, Wine Advocate
LA FORGE DE TART 1er CRU
An impressive wine on every level, produced from an ancient vineyard in a completely new winery, with high-tech installation but ultra-traditional, open-top wood fermenters. The new regisseur, Alessandro Noli, has continued the work begun by Jacques Devauges to modernise the process, picking earlier (but not too early) as, according to Noli, 'we don’t want prune juice'. Now the wine is extremely polished, rich and firm, but not overdone.
