    Default Clos de Tart, etc

    I had dinner last night with Hugues Witz, General Directeur of
    Mommessin and I brought a couple of bottles of Clos de Tart and he
    brought a selection of Mommessin wines. I just jotted down some
    general impressions.
    2005 Mommessin Pommard Les Pierriers-Dark, typical Pommard heft. A
    big muscular and tannic but nice black cherry notes.

    2005 Mommessin Morgon-Sweet Gamay fruit, good acidity and balance.
    Elegant and fruit forward. A bit of red raspberry and a touch of
    banana on the nose.

    2005 Mommessin Moulin a Vent-Big and more assertive than the Morgon.
    Strawberry, red cherry and vanilla notes. A bit flabby on the finish.

    1999 Clos De Tart-Dark ruby in the glass. Deep black cherry notes on
    the nose. Black fruits, espresso and mineral on the palate. Quite
    good. "B+"

    2000 Clos de Tart-Lighter than the 1999 in color. Exotic spice and
    sweet cherry on the palate. Much more elegant than the 1999. WOTN

    My general impression of Mommessin is that they have upped their game
    a lot in last decade, is that your feeling?
    2000s are really drinking well now

    Yes especially as far as Clos de Tart is concerned. Both wines were
    excellent but even the Cru Beaujolais were really quite good (I
    recently was mentioning my dislike for Gamay...!). They had a change
    in ownership in 1996 that got things moving in the right direction.
    Hugues Witz is very interested in the American market and how we
    percieve Mommessin and many of their wines for the American market are
    labeled with the varietal and they are moving towards stelvin on many
    products.

    I was on a tour this week in Burgundy and the guide was going on anti
    stelvin. I mentioned that Verget was using stelvin on all of their recent US
    exports- got a stunned "don't know what to say there" look! Quite fun
    actually.
