“Note: made from 3 to 20 year old vines planted in 3 different parts of the Clos; no whole clusters. Tasting note: An attractively discreet application of wood sets off the ripe and very fresh aromas of various dark berries that are nuanced by hints of earth and violet. The sleek and seductively textured medium-bodied flavors possess good intensity and a lovely mouthfeel, all wrapped in a solidly complex and sneaky long finish. This is both richer and denser than its 2017 counterpart if not quite as energetic. Still, it's quite good and would make a good mid-term cellaring choice. Outstanding. Score: 91. Drink: 2024+.” Allen Meadows, Burghound, Issue #73, January 2019.
“The 2016 Morey-Saint-Denis 1er Cru La Forge de Tart is also showing well, displaying an attractive bouquet of cherries, dark chocolate and pungent soil tones, followed by a medium to full-bodied, fleshy palate with nice concentration and depth. Score: 90. Drink: 2022-2036.” William Kelley, The Wine Advocate, January 2019.
