    Clos de Tart 1978
    Bottle (2)
    "Distinct bricking but still some ruby remaining. The superbly complex nose is now fully secondary and there are even mild notes of sous bois along with hints of leather, earth, spice and a slight animale component that is in keeping with the character of the serious, concentrated and well-muscled flavors that are still supported by a touch of residual structure on the beautifully balanced and wonderfully long finish. This is a classic '78 with the intriguing juxtaposition of richness and coolness that I associate with the vintage. In a word, terrific." (93pts Allen Meadows, Burghound, Nov 2009)
