La Forge de Tart isn't made every year - there was no 2012, 2013 or 2015 - but when it is made, it uses the younger vines planted between 1999 and 2011. For people who can't afford the grand vin, it's a good introduction to the shift in style over the last two or three vintages. It has subtle red fruits, floral top-notes, nicely handled 80% new wood and appealing precision, texture and minerality.--Tim Atkin, Decanter

Made up from the younger vines planted in 1999, 2005 and 2011. It has a fine purple colour, with soft red raspberry fruit, a little firm behind. Good wine that merits its 1er cru labelling, but does not feel like a baby grand cru. Tasted: November 2018--Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy

Tasting note: A fresh and ripe nose features notes of both red and dark cherry that are trimmed in floral, herbal tea and wood hints. The agreeably textured and rich flavors are not super-dense though neither are they light, all wrapped in a juicy, pliant, refreshing and ever-so-mildly warm finale. This youthfully austere effort offers good quality and is a wine that should drink reasonably well young if that's your preference.--Allen Meadows, Burghound
