Clos de Tart is a domaine based on a single grand cru monopole vineyard and winery in the Burgundy commune of Morey-Saint-Denis, making two wines, both from Pinot Noir. Its history dates back to a 12th Century abbey constructed by Cistercian nuns of the Notre Dame de Tart order. The vineyard has remained a monopole ever since. In 2017 it was bought by French billionaire Francois Pinault for a figure thought to be in excess of 25 million ($260 million). The property was previously owned by the Mommessin family (since 1932). The family sold its negociant business to Jean-Claude Boisset, of the major Burgundy wine family, but retained the Clos de Tart vineyard. The Mommessin brand has relocated to Beaujolais under the Boisset family, while the wines of Clos de Tart ceased to carry the Mommessin name on the label.
