Jasper MORRIS, Inside Burgundy

LA FORGE DE TART 1er CRU
91-94

This comes from the section known as La Forge, plus a young vine planting from 2011, and “Ballonge 2” where the plant selection could be better – it will be top-grafted shortly. One third whole bunch in the Ballonge component makes about 15% in all. This is a glowing purple colour, without the black. A light reduction on the nose which later shows as toasty barrel. Very complete, sensual, with good unforced acidity, more red fruit than black. Still a certain masculinity. Surprising length and depth of aftertaste. Clean and fresh after tasting the 2018. There are 15 barrels of La Forge du Tart, with half in new wood.
