The wine in this lot has a score of 91 from Robert Parker and the following tasting note -Revisited in bottle, the 2019 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Forge de Tart wafts from the glass with aromas of raspberries, sweet spices, rose petals and orange rind. Medium to full-bodied, layered and velvety, with an ample core of fruit, powdery tannins and lively acids, it's seamless and harmonious, promising a broad drinking window. Alessandro Noli, the new régisseur of Clos de Tart, seems to have found his feet in short order, and I was very impressed by his debut 2019 vintage. Changes here include much gentler handling of the grapes during cuvaison—just occasional "foulage," as Noli puts it, by foot—and diminished percentages of new oak- 70% for the Tart herself, and 50% for the Forge. Some concrete eggs, it seems, now keep the fûts company in the cellar. The 2019s, produced by these methods, showed brilliantly, and I look forward to seeing what Noli will be able to achieve in coming vintages. The burly, rich and overtly sun-kissed 2018 vintage, by contrast, can't claim to number among my favorites, and it will clearly take a distant last place among the four vintages produced during Jacques Desvauges' time as régisseur of this historic domaine.
