A l’origine, la famille TARDY est installée à Flagey-Echezeaux à quelques kilomètres de Vosne-Romanée. Victor Tardy entre au Domaine Camuzet en 1920 à Vosne-Romanée comme ouvrier agricole, et en 1945, Etienne Camuzet député de la Côte d’Or lui confie des vignes en métayage. Jean Tardy succède à son père en 1966 et le Domaine Méo-Camuzet lui donne en métayage les vignes de Nuits St Georges 1er Cru ‘Aux Boudots’ , Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru ‘Les Chaumes’, et Clos Vougeot Grand Cru .

Depuis 1981, Jean Tardy fait des efforts pour agrandir son exploitation. En effet, après avoir acquis quelques parcelles d’appellations Bourgogne Passetoutgrain, le Domaine s’est élargi de 5 appellations Village : Chambolle Musigny (1984), Nuits St Georges (1989), Vosne-Romanée (1999) , Fixin (2006) , Gevrey ‘ Aux Champerriers’ (2007). Hautes côtes de Nuits ( 2008 ) , Echézeaux en Grand Cru depuis 2002 . En Enfin  Nuits St Georges 1er Cru ‘ Aux Argillas’ ( 2010 )

C’est en 1997 que son fils Guillaume a décidé de revenir au Domaine tout en poursuivant ses études en viti-œnologie à l’ école de Beaune, puis à la faculté d’œnologie de Dijon pour enfin travailler à plein temps avec son père en 2000 après 8 mois de travail Au Domaine Picardy (Western Australia ) en tant qu’assistant de vinification .

A son retour, à partir de la récolte 2001, Guillaume a pris la responsabilité de l’élaboration des vins lors de la vinification sous le regard attentif de son père . C’est en 2003 que Guillaume s’installe à la tête de l’exploitation tout en continuant à travailler très proche de son père, alliant ainsi le savoir faire traditionnel et l’expérience de celui-ci avec le savoir et les nouvelles techniques actuelles .

Nous travaillons la vigne dans le respect des sols et de la plante, privilégiant le travail des sols ( laboures )  et l’apport de composte naturel aux divers ajouts chimiques . Nous assurons nous même l’ensemble des soins apportés à la vigne et aux sols  pour conduire celle ci à nous produire le raisin le plus sain possible tout en présentant la meilleure maturité possible, ceci passant par une taille courte en hivers, un ébourgeonnage très strict au printemps et une vendange verte systématique chaque début d’été pour assurer une meilleure concentration des sucres, des arômes, et de la matière colorante (polyphénols), notre but étant de produire des vins d’un fruit très pur, alliant la finesse et l’élégance du pinot noir tout en respectant l’expression de chaque terroir.

 

Les méthodes de vinifications restent très traditionnelles (100% égrappé)  avec une alternance le pigeages et de remontages, mais avec une macération pré-fermentaire à froid depuis 2001 et des cuvaisons de 18 à 20 jours selon les besoin du millésime.

 

L’élevage des vins se fait en fûts de chêne sur une durée de 16 à 20 mois ( 25 à 30 % de fûts neufs pour les villages , 50 à 60  % pour les 1er Crus et 70% pour les grands Crus.),  jusqu’à l’unification de chaque cuvée et la mise en bouteille qui sera assurée par nos soins au Domaine .

 

 

ENGLISH

 

In the beginning, the Tardy’s family was located in Flagey Echézeaux, a few kilometres far from Vosne-Romanée. In 1920, Victor Tardy start work at Domaine Camuzet as an agricultural worker and in 1945, Etienne Camuzet, representant of  Côte d’Or gives him some vineyards in ‘métayage’ .

 Jean Tardy  takes over his father in 1966 and the Domaine Méo-Camuzet gives him some more vineyards in métayage to work , Nuits St Georges 1er cru , Vosne-Romanée 1er cru, and Clos Vougeot grand Cru until vintage 2007.

Since 1981, Jean Tardy gives a lot of efforts to enlarge his estate . After the purchase of few generic appellations , the Domaine gets bigger with 5 other village appellations, Chambolle Musigny (1984) , Nuits st Georges (1989) ,Vosne-Romanée (1999) , Fixin (2006 ) , Gevrey-Chambertin ( 2007 )   and one grand Cru in métayage , Echézeaux (in 2002 ). Hautes côtes de Nuits ( 2008 )  And now  Nuits St Georges 1er Cru ‘ Aux Argillas’ from 2010.

 From 1997, his son Guillaume was back on the Domaine and in the same time, at viticultural school in Beaune. Then, he went at university of oenology in Dijon. This is just since 2000 that he’s back for full time on the Domaine after 8 mouths work as winemaker assistant Picardy Winery (Western Australia ).

When he came back, Guillaume got in charge of the winemaking in 2001 vintage under the advised eye of his father.

In 2003, he became the manager of the Domaine , but kept working closely with Jean, combining the traditional knowledge and experience of this one and the actual knowledge and new techniques .

We work the vines with the respect of the soils and of the plant, giving a greater place in working the soils ( ploughing ) and adding natural compost instead of chemicals .

All the works and cares are done by our self to drive the vines to give us the best and healthiest fruit with the better maturity as possible . This start from a short pruning, to strict buds fining , to a strict green harvest, done every year to drop the yield down .By this way , we give a really good aeration on the area of the grapes to avoid diseases and concentrate the sugars and all the polyphenols  in the left bunches .

Our goal is to produce wines with the purest fruit, combining the ‘finesse’ and elegance of pinot noir and respecting each ‘terroirs’ .

 The winemaking is traditional (100% destemed ), with 18 to 20 days long vating and cold maceration since 2001, depends on what needs the vintage.

The aging last about 18 mouths in oak barrels ( 25 to 33% new oak for villages, 50 for 1er Crus and 70% for grands Crus .) until the bottling, done by ourself at the Domaine .

Guillaume Tardy describes 2012 as a “beautiful vintage despite the poor flowering that cost us so much potential yield. I would put our losses overall right at 30% relative to a normal harvest. I decided to begin picking on the 25th of September and the fruit was exceptionally clean, indeed so much so that there really wasn’t much sorting to do. The skins were quite thick and I think it would have been easy to over extract so I did more of an infusion because producing balanced wines is my main concern. As to the wines, the supporting phenolics are very ripe but allied with plenty of refreshing acidity. The mouth feels are elegant with a good balance of various fruit, tannin and acidities. I love how refreshing the wines are and to me they should drink well both young and old as they have the balance and concentration to age if that’s how my clients wish to drink them. I would like them to an even better version of 2010.” I have noted this before but it seems that each vintage Tardy makes little improvements to his wines. They are less overtly oaky than before (though there is still enough to notice) with seriously impressive quality given that the bulk of the range is in villages level wines. Tardy has done extremely well yet again with his lower level wines in both 2011 and 2012. In fact I would observe that Tardy has easily transcended the general quality of both vintages. As such, if you don’t know the wines, you owe your pocketbook the favor of making their acquaintance.

 

Tardy noted that his 2011s, revisited below, were bottled in February 2013. (Becky Wasserman & Co., www.leserbet.com,

Beaune, France; Classified Wine & Spirits, LLC, www.classifiedwine.net, Austin, TX).

 

 2012 sur Fûts / Out of Barrel

2012 Bourgogne – Hautes Côtes de Nuits Cuvée Maelie: A ripe but reserved nose features notes of fresh red berries and soft earth hints. There is good detail and punch to the solidly well-concentrated and mineral-inflected flavors that are shaped by phenolically mature tannins on the balanced finish. A fine example of the genre. (86-88)/2016+

 

2012 Fixin “La Place”: Brilliant ruby. Here the nose is more expressive with notes of red currant, floral hints and plenty of earth character. There is both a bit more volume and a higher level of ripeness to the concentrated and concentrated middle weight flavors that possess a hint of minerality on the lingering finish that displays almost no rusticity. (87-89)/2017+

 

2012 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets”: There is a discreet application of wood to the red and dark pinot fruit aromas where there is a strong earth element and softer more subtle spice nuances. The supple, generous and fleshy medium weight flavors possess good mid-palate fat before terminating in a naturally sweet and seductive finish. (87-89)/2017+

 

2012 Vosne-Romanée “Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and it is the only declared example of which I am aware). A spicy, ripe and well-layered mélange of red and black pinot fruit, cherry and soft floral aromas is both elegant and complex. This is more tightly coiled than the Athets with a light minerality adding a sense of lift to the attractively vibrant and delicious flavors that possess fine concentration and lovely balance on the detailed and lingering finish. This is a fine villages and worth a look. (88-91)/2018+

 

2012 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). A cool, restrained and impressively pure nose offers up essence of red berry scents that evidence subtle hints of Gevrey style earth and sauvage elements. There is good mid-palate density to the fleshy, round and delicious medium weight flavors that also reflect a light minerality on the well-balanced and solidly persistent finish. Once again, this is a quality villages. (88-91)/2018+

 

2012 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). There is enough reduction present to compromise a proper assessment of the nose. By contrast there is very good freshness to the vibrant and delineated medium-bodied flavors that possess fine mid-palate concentration as the dry extract really coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm tannic spine on the delicious if ever-so-mildly austere finish. As is often the case this is the best villages in the range in 2012 if only by a little. (89-91)/2019+

 

2012 Nuits St. Georges “Les Argillas”: (from a .40 ha parcel of vines that average about 40 years of age). Soft wood influence frames the notably ripe yet quite cool and restrained aromas of red berries, dark currant, earth and a hint of animale. There is a refined mouth feel to the mineral-driven, energetic and detailed middle weight flavors that are supported by plenty of dry extract and moderately firm tannins before concluding in a balanced, clean and agreeably dry finale. This is basically a wine of finesse though there is just enough muscle to make it clear that this is still Nuits-based. (89-92)/2020+

 

2012 Echézeaux – Vieilles Vignes: (note that as of 2012 Tardy elected to no longer use the name of the climat Les Treux on the label). A beautifully layered and prominently spiced nose blends notes of red currant, plum, earth and sandalwood. There is a very generous, even lush mouth feel to the broad-shouldered, intense and powerful flavors that presently display just enough bitterness to notice on the otherwise well-balanced and lingering finish. Note that my predicted range assumes that this bitterness is just a passing phase that is probably due to the elevated level of gas. (90-93)/2020+

 2011 en Bouteille / Bottled

2011 Fixin “La Place”: This is also quite pretty with a relatively earthy blend of humus, spice and game on the red and blue pinot fruit aromas. There is good mid-palate concentration to the rich, round and solidly complex flavors that possess unusually fine tannins, all wrapped in a balanced, long and again utterly delicious finish where only a trace of rusticity is perceptible. 88/2016+

 

2011 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets”: A discreet hint of wood spice adds breadth to the more elegant and airy red pinot fruit aromas that are cut with just a bit of earth that can also be found on the attractively rich, round, refined and lightly mineraltinged middle weight flavors. There is good energy and detail to the solidly persistent and well-balanced finish. 88/2018+

 

2011 Vosne-Romanée “Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and it is the only declared example of which I am aware). Here the nose reflects both soft oak and Vosne spice nuances that complement the notably ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis and anise. There is ample richness and volume to the mouth coating and solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine dry extract that imparts a velvety texture to the balanced and impressively long finish. This is first-rate for its level and absolutely worth a look. 89/2017+

 

2011 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). Subtle wood spice hints blend with ripe, fresh and markedly earthy dark pinot fruit scents. There is a textured and very suave mouth feel to the extract-rich medium weight flavors that possess plenty of punch and excellent complexity, all wrapped in a long finish that combines power with a certain sense of refinement. There is a trace of youthful asperity but my score assumes that it will round out with time in bottle as this is quite ripe. 89/2018+

 

2011 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). An exceptionally pretty, pure and very fresh nose unites aromas of cool red pinot fruit, wet stone, humus and wet stone. There is excellent power and a taut muscularity to the solidly voluminous, intense and beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the punchy and harmonious finish. This is an unusually complete wine for its level and very much recommended plus it should age well too if desired. 90/2018+

 

2011 Nuits St. Georges “Les Argillas”: (from a .40 ha parcel of vines that average about 40 years of age). A mildly toasty nose displays fresh and cool scents of red berries and earth plus a hint of game. There is excellent volume to the round middle weight flavors that are supported by fine-grained tannins that are firm but not rustic, all wrapped in an ever-so-slightly warm and slightly dry finish. This is pretty but it’s not completely clear that it will harmonize in time. 90?/2019+

 

2011 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: (in 2011 Tardy reduced the new oak percentage from 100 to 70%). Noticeable if not dominant wood sets off exuberantly spicy, fresh and highly complex black pinot fruit aromas. There is both excellent volume and solid power to the medium weight plus flavors that are blessed with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract on the appealingly persistent, deep and seductive finish. This should age well yet drink well young too. 92/2021+

Millésime 2012 sur Fûts / Out of Barrel

 

2012 Jean Tardy Bourgogne Hautes Cotes   de Nuits Cuvee Maelie Rouge (87-89)

The 2012 Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Cuvee   Maelie offers some lovely pure dark plum and mulberry scents on the nose that   already offers plenty of volume and vigor. The palate is smooth and rounded,   nicely polished with tart red cherries and a touch of cassis lining the   finish. This modern-style Pinot will be approachable and delicious.
 
  Several weeks after visiting Guillaume Tardy at his winery on the RN74 to   taste the 2011s, I was back to taste the following vintage. Tardy is one of   the young and upcoming winemakers of Vosne-Romanee. His tenets are quite   straightforward: 100% de-stemming and no crushing, one week cold maceration   at 10 or 11 degrees and gentle extraction by infusion, like a tea bag, in   order to avoid astringent tannins and enhance silky textures. Ergo, Tardy-s   wines often have a modern sheen, perhaps even a glossiness that distinguishes   them for others. I have been a fan of these wines ever since I was introduced   to them several years ago in London, though Guillaume stressed that since the   introduction of temperature-controlled vats with the 2010 vintage, he has   been achieving ever greater precision in his wines. Like several other   winemakers, his approach is for a more reductive maturation in barrel, using   the carbon dioxide to act as a natural barrier. All the samples were taken   from one-year-old barrels although I tasted one or two from bottled blends in   order to examine the influence of the new oak on what will be the final   blend. -The 2012s have more freshness because of the higher acidity,- he   explained. -They are very vivacious. I think that 2012 is a better vintage   for aging compared to 2011 as you have acidity, structure and ripe tannins.   We started picking on September 23 and finished one week later. The harvest   was not easy as it was raining quite a lot, but we had a very nice August and   beginning of September. It was sunny until the September 22 and then we had   20mm of rain during the night. It was a wet harvest, but in the end the   grapes were healthy. It reminds me a little of 2002, but it is not as   concentrated as 2005 and keeps a delicate touch, so they will be more   approachable. 2012 is a big 2010.-

 

2012 Jean Tardy Chambolle Musigny les   Athets (90-92)

The 2012 Chambolle-Musigny Les Athets will be   matured in 35% new oak. It displays fine volume on the floral-scented nose   that bears semblances to the Fixin La Place -12, but with more vigor and   intensity. The palate is fresh and vibrant with very fine tannins. It needs a   little more flesh toward the finish, but that oak will fill in some of those   gaps. Brisk and lively in the mouth, give this young pup 18 months in bottle   after release.

 

 2012 Jean Tardy Echezeaux Vieilles   Vignes (92-94)

The 2012 Echezeaux Grand Cru Vieilles Vignes   has an intense nose of dark berry fruit, black plum and mulberry with just a   tang of sea salt. It is broody, biding its time and wondering why the hell   someone cannot wait until after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with   fine, grainy tannins and a fine line of acidity. The middle and finish are   very compact with a gentle grip and a long, slightly saline finish. This is   undoubtedly an impressive Echezeaux in the making, a serious Pinot Noir that   will deserve several years in bottle.

         
 

 

2012 Jean Tardy Fixin la Place (88-90)

The 2012 Fixin La Place will be aged in 30%   new oak. It has a fragrant bouquet with lifted floral scents that are very   well-defined. The palate is crisp and fresh with pointed acidity. Very   natural in the mouth already, part of me wonders whether that new wood will   be necessary come final blending! Still, this is a very competent, vibrant,   silky smooth Fixin that is full of vigor.

 

2012 Jean Tardy Gevrey Chambertin   Champs Perrieres Vieilles Vignes (91-93)

The 2012 Gevrey-Chambertin Vieilles Vignes   Champerrier has an ebullient bouquet that will offer natural, brambly   raspberry and wild strawberry fruit interlaced with fine minerality and   precision. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins encasing pert,   poised red berry fruit. It feels long and languorous in the mouth while the   finish exerts just a pleasant grip. The new wood will eventually lend it more   breadth than it presently shows. Excellent.

 

2012 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges 1er   Cru Aux Argillas ( 91-93)

The 2012 Nuits St. Georges 1er Cru Aux   Argillas needed two or three minutes to really open up in the glass but it is   certainly worth the wait. Guillaume plunged this Nuits more than his other   vineyards but was mindful of not over-extracting. It has a nuanced, complex bouquet   already with dark berry fruit, light forest floor aromas, candied orange peel   and a fine mineral component that only emerges with patience. The palate is   medium-bodied with very fine tannins, something that I think Guillaume Tardy   has really perfected in the last two or three vintages. It has very fine   persistency in the mouth with a touch of sucrose enlivening the aftertaste.

 

2012 Nuits St Georges Vieilles Vignes   Bas de Combe (88-90)

The 2012 Nuits St. Georges Vieilles Vignes Bas   de Combe has a more tertiary nose compared to Guillaume Tardy-s other 2012s:   darker fruit, undergrowth, field mushroom and even a marine influence that   might be enhanced after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp   tannins. This is tightly wound, reticent, almost broody, but there is superb   tension if not quite the persistency on the finish. This could be in a sullen   patch, so it will be intriguing to reassess this later in January. I suspect   will require four or five years in bottle.

 

2012 Jean Tardy Vosne Romanee Vigneux   (91-93)

The 2012 Vosne-Romanee Vigneux has a tighter,   more linear bouquet than the Chambolle Athets, with brambly red berry fruit   and touches of forest floor. There is a very pleasant, nascent sense of   tension here. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine and almost filigree   tannins. This feels very ripe in the mouth but not excessively so, the finish   silky smooth and exuding panache that will be enhanced with the addition of   the new wood. This has great potential and suggests that it will have fine   mineralite.

Dégustation Millésime 2011

Allen Meadows - Burghound.com

Guillaume Tardy is now in charge of this small, traditional 5.5 ha domaine though papa Jean is still on the scene to offer advice and a helping hand here and there. The younger Tardy describes 2011 as a vintage where we had “a very early start to the growing season as the spring was hot and notably dry. The summer though was just plain lousy and there’s no honest way of sugar coating that fact. Because we had more than 100 days between the middle of the flowering and the date of the harvest we did manage to obtain surprisingly good phenolic maturity and good if not truly excellent potential alcohols of between 11.5 and 12.8%. We elected to begin picking on the 3rd of September and brought in reasonably clean and ripe fruit that possessed good acidities. I decided to do a slightly softer but longer cuvaison, which is to say half as much punching down but over a 21 to 22 day period. The wines are really quite elegant with good concentration and freshness and I think my clients will like them as they will be accessible young but they have the depth of material and balance to age too if they want.”

I have noted this before but it seems that each vintage Tardy makes little improvements to his wines. They are less overtly oaky than before (though there is still enough to notice) with seriously impressive quality given that the bulk of the range is in villages level wines. Indeed Tardy has done extremely well with his lower level wines in both 2010 and 2011, particularly in 2010. If you don’t know the wines, you owe your pocketbook the favor of making their acquaintance.

 

2011's Dégustation sur Fûts - Barrels' Tasting 

2011 Bourgogne – Hautes Côtes de Nuits: A beautifully fresh nose of ripe red currant, blue berry and a hint of stone slides gracefully into fleshy, round and vibrant flavors that conclude with a balanced, delicious and persistent effort. This is very pretty and worth considering. (86-88)/2014+

 2011 Fixin “La Place”: This is also quite pretty with a relatively earthy blend of humus, spice and game on the red and blue pinot fruit aromas. There is good mid-palate concentration to the rich, round and solidly complex flavors that possess unusually fine tannins, all wrapped in a balanced, long and again utterly delicious finish. (87-89)/2016+

2011 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets Vieilles Vignes”: A discreet hint of wood spice adds breadth to the more elegant and airy red pinot fruit aromas that are cut with just a bit of earth that can also be found on the attractively rich, round, refined and lightly mineral-tinged middle weight flavors. There is good energy and detail to the solidly persistent and well-balanced finish. A quality villages. (88-91)/2016+

 2011 Vosne-Romanée “Le Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and Tardy’s is the only separately declared example of which I am aware). Here the nose reflects both oak and Vosne spice nuances that complement the notably ripe aromas of black cherry, cassis and anise. There is ample richness and volume to the mouth coating and solidly concentrated medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine dry extract that imparts a velvety texture to the balanced and impressively long finish. This is first-rate for its level and absolutely worth a look. (89-91)/2017+

2011 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). Noticeable though not dominant wood spice hints blend with ripe, fresh and markedly earthy dark pinot fruit scents. There is a textured and very suave mouth feel to the extract-rich medium weight flavors that possess plenty of punch and excellent complexity, all wrapped in a long finish that combines power with a certain sense of refinement. Lovely stuff, particularly for the appellation. (89-91)/2017+

2011 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). An exceptionally pretty, pure and very fresh nose unites aromas of cool red pinot fruit, wet stone, humus and wet stone. There is excellent power and a taut muscularity to the solidly voluminous, intense and beautifully well-detailed medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the punchy and harmonious finish. This is an unusually complete wine for its level and very much recommended plus it should age well too if desired. (89-92)/2018+

2011 Nuits St. Georges “Les Argillas”: (from a .40 ha parcel of vines that average about 40 years of age). A relatively toasty nose with plenty of wood spice displays fresh and cool scents of red berries and earth plus a hint of game. There is excellent volume to the round middle weight flavors that are supported by fine-grained tannins that are firm but not rustic, all wrapped in an ever-so-slightly warm finish. (89-91)/2018+

2011 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: (in 2011 Tardy reduced the new oak percentage from 100 to 70%).  Noticeable if not dominant wood sets off exuberantly spicy, fresh and highly complex black pinot fruit aromas. There is both excellent volume and solid power to the medium weight plus flavors that are blessed with an abundance of mouth coating dry extract on the appealingly persistent, deep and seductive finish. (90-93)/2021+   Tardy said that his 2010s were bottled in February 2012.

 

 2010's : Dégustation Bouteille

 2010 Bourgogne – Hautes Côtes de Nuits: A pretty and very fresh nose of red pinot fruit that evidences subtle mineral nuances leads to rich, round and attractively detailed flavors that possess a racy, precise and energetic finish. This is a lovely effort and fashioned in an unadorned and understated style. Recommended. 87/2014+

2010 Fixin “La Place”: A ripe, complex and attractive mix of earthy dark berry fruit aromas is given added appeal by the presence of violet and cassis hints that are trimmed in a touch of wood. There is good punch to the very supple and surprisingly silky middle weight flavors that are not only delicious but relatively refined in the context of the appellation. I very much like the texture, and overall, this is really quite good and while it could easily be approached now it should reward 3 to 4 years of cellar time if desired. 88/2015+

2010 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets Vieilles Vignes”: Deep ruby. A gentle touch of wood frames the ripe, complex and attractively complex nose featuring both red and blue pinot fruit that also displays tinges of violets, spice and earth. The textured medium-bodied flavors possess good dry extract that buffers the moderately firm shaping tannins on the nicely lingering finish. This is a very fine villages that has a good track record for rewarding mid-term cellaring. 89/2017+

2010 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). In 2010 this could pass for a villages level Vosne as there are abundant spice notes on the otherwise earthy, cool and ripe black currant and plum suffused nose. There is an abundance of energy on the well-delineated flavors where the supporting tannins are also relatively fine, all wrapped in a rich, vibrant and well-balanced finish that displays just a hint of rusticity. This will need some time to unwind but there is enough sap from the old vines that it should be approachable in its youth if desired. Well worth considering as this is a first-rate villages. 90/2017+

2010 Vosne-Romanée “Le Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and Tardy’s is the only separately declared example of which I am aware). A softly spiced and beautifully layered dark berry fruit nose is also trimmed in a bit of wood spice and leads to round and velvety medium-bodied flavors that display silky tannins on the precise, punchy, firm and linear finish where the wood resurfaces. This is picture perfect Vosne and an exercise in harmony as the balance is impeccable. Recommended. 89/2018+ 

2010 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). A completely different aromatic profile speaks of very fresh, cool and restrained wild red berry fruit aromas that are liberally sprinkled with notes of underbrush, pungent earth, humus and that unique Gevrey animale character. There is admirable richness to the generous, vibrant and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the balanced, firm and lingering finish. A high quality villages that is again well worth considering. 90/2017+

2010 Nuits St. Georges “Les Argillas”: (from a .40 ha parcel of vines that average about 40 years of age). A relatively reticent nose of warm earth, red currant and black raspberry plus a touch of forest floor exhibits some wood influence gives way to delineated and highly energetic medium weight flavors that possess fine depth as well as excellent persistence with only a trace of Nuits style rusticity. This well-balanced effort should require 10 years or so of cellar time before it reaches its apogee. 91/2020+

2010 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: There is enough wood to notice though it does not materially inhibit the expressiveness of the notably ripe primarily black fruit, spice and earth suffused nose. There is both excellent volume and richness to the focused, powerful and broad-scaled flavors that enjoy an abundance of dry extract before terminating in a velvety yet slightly austere finish where a bit of wood toast resurfaces. This is quite firm without being hard and this too will require at least a decade before it arrives at its full maturity. 93/2022+

MON COUP DE COEUR
Jean TARDY & fils – Vosne-Romanée

 

deux coups de cœur lors d’une dégustation, c’est la première fois de mémoire. Mais je ne pouvais taire le plaisir que j’ai eu à déguster pour la première fois les vins de ce domaine. Guillaume TARDY est aux manettes depuis 2001. Les vins sont concentrés, sapides, intenses, jouissifs. Vraiment du beau travail que je vais m’empresser d’approfondir.

 

****(*) Vosne-Romanée « les Vigneux » 2011
nez profond, cerise noire, réservé. La bouche est compacte, intense, marquée par l’élevage qui soutient bien le vin. C’est aujourd’hui très jeune, ça évoluera superbement. Bonne finale tonique.

 

le jeune Guillaume TARDY fera très probablement partie des prochains portraits du blog. Les prix sont dans la moyenne, mais la qualité domine. Et que ça dure !

 

****(*) Echezeaux Grand Cru 2011
nez fermé, réservé, marqué par l’élevage, mais ça a de la profondeur et de la race. La bouche est compacte, concentrée, une belle puissance mais qui reste fine, et typique de ce cru. Longueur inouïe.

 

 

Wine Advocate - Neal Martin  / erobertparker.com  N° 208 August 2013

 Millésime 2011 en Bouteille / Bottled

2011 Jean Tardy Bourgogne Hautes Cotes   de Nuits Cuvee Maelie Rouge - 87

The 2011 Hautes Cote de Nuits Cuvee Maelie   comes from 40-year-old vines on the plateau just above Vosne-Romanee that   tends to achieve good maturity even in late vintages. Raised in one- and   two-year-old barrels, it has plenty of rounded red berry fruit on the nose –   macerated red cherries and fresh strawberry. The palate is smooth on the   entry with decent weight, light tannins and citrus fresh tart cherry finish. Fine.  


  I have met Guillaume Tardy a few times in London, but this was the first time   that I dropped by at his winery on the Route Nationale in Vosne (word of   warning for first-time visitors: blink and you will miss the sign.) The roots   of the domaine stem from his family’s metiers for Domaine Meo-Camuzet and as   Jean-Nicolas Meo regained control, the Tardy family had to effectively   rebuild their own domaine. So Jean Tardy began acquiring small vineyard parcels,   though never less than a plot that could regularly yield six barrels per   vintage in order for them to be worth bottling on their own. Guillaume   himself started working with his father in 1997 but his first vintage was   2001, after working at the Picardy Winery in Australia. His 2011s were   bottled in February. Guillaume told me that he is looking for silky tannins   and freshness and that neatly sums up his wines that I have praised in the   past and have no hesitation in doing so again.

 

 

2011 Jean Tardy Chambolle Musigny les   Athets - 88

The 2011 Chambolle-Musigny Les Athets comes   from a 0.32-hectare parcel bought by the family in 1984. It has a lifted   bouquet with perfumed strawberry, blueberry and violet scents that are   well-defined. The palate is medium-bodied with a ripe, supple opening. The   acidity is nicely judged with moderate complexity. Harmonious right to the   finish, though quite linear and conservative, this is a fine Chambolle for   early drinking. Drink now-2017.

 

 

2011 Jean Tardy Echezeaux Vieilles   Vignes - 92

The 2011 Echezeaux Vieilles Vignes comes from   the lieu-dit of Les Treux from 75-year-old vines. It has a generous bouquet   with dark cherries, red currant and raspberry with hints of cold stone and   just a touch of vanilla. The palate is medium-bodied with supple, edgy   tannins that lend this Echezeaux the tension it needs to counterbalance that   supple ripe dark cherry and mulberry fruit. It is very composed on the finish   that handles the 70% new oak with aplomb. Very fine although it just needs a   little more persistency.

 

2011 Jean Tardy Fixin la Place - 89

The 2011 Fixin La Place comes from a   0.41-parcel of 40 to 45-year-old vines and is raised in 25% new oak. It has a   very attractive floral bouquet with raspberry and red cherries laced with   rose petals - quite feminine for a Fixin. The palate is lithe and fresh on   the entry with dark cherries, plum and a touch of citrus peel. The tannins   are very fine, although they taper away toward the finish. This is a very   drinkable Fixin. Drink now-2016.

 

2011 Jean Tardy Gevrey Chambertin   Champs Perrieres Vieilles Vignes - 91

The 2011 Gevrey-Chambertin Les Champerriers   comes from 55-year-old vines in the upper part of the vineyard with   gravel-rich soils. It has a slightly tighter bouquet with touches of cedar   and pine infusing the dark berry fruit. The palate is very smooth and   velvety, almost Vosne-like in style, building in power but retaining elegance   toward the end. Fine. Drink now-2020.

 

 2011 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges 1er   cru les Argillas - 92

The 2011 Nuits-St-Georges 1er Cru Les Argillas   comes from a 0.4-hectare parcel within the lieu-dit. It has a generous   bouquet with wild strawberry, raspberry preserve and a touch of marmalade in   the background. The palate is vibrant and lively on the entry with lifted   dark cherry and black plum fruit. It exerts a gentle grip and offers a touch   of spiciness on the aftertaste. This is another elegant 2011 from Tardy.   Drink 2014-2021.

 

2011 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges   Vieilles Vignes Bas de Combe - 91

The 2011 Nuits-St-Georges Aux Bas de Combe   Vieille Vignes comes from a 0.45-hectare parcel of 65-year-old vines that, to   quote Guillaume Tardy, is the “most Vosne-Romanee of Nuits-St-Georges.” It   has one of the more intense, perhaps precocious bouquets in 2011 with lifted   plush blueberry and dark cherry scents. The palate is very smooth and silky   on the entry with well-integrated new oak giving it a glossy sheen without   denuding it of terroir expression. It slips down the throat almost too   easily?but that is not a bad thing when it comes to wine. Drink now-2019.

 

2011 Jean Tardy Vosne Romanee Vigneux   - 90

The 2011 Vosne-Romanee Les Vigneux is located   down toward Les Suchots and come from Tardy’s 30-year-old vines that tend to   produce small berries. It has a candied bouquet with red cherries, orange   blossom and touches of vanilla and smoke. The palate is medium-bodied with   very smooth tannins, lovely texture caressing the mouth with sweet red cherry   and strawberry notes toward the silky finish. Drink now-2018.

Dégustation Millésime 2010

Allen Meadows - USA - Burghound.com

Guillaume Tardy is now in charge of this small, traditional 5.5 ha domaine though papa Jean is still on the scene to offer advice and a helping hand here and there. The younger Tardy describes 2010 as a “cool vintage that achieved remarkably good phenolic ripeness. The acidities are firm but not aggressive and the tannins are much riper than I expected. We began picking on the 25th of September and the fruit was actually very clean and required relatively minor sorting and most of that was for under ripe berries rather than rot. Potential alcohols were good to very good at between 11.8 and 12.8% and as such there wasn’t much in the way of chaptalization. As to the wines, I very much like them because they have a wonderful sense of energy with silky tannins that make for a seductive mouth feel and really lovely balance. I think that once people taste them they may very well prefer the slightly more restrained style of the ‘10s to the more opulent and richer style of the ‘09s.

 

2010's Barrel tasting:

 2010 Bourgogne – Hautes Côtes de Nuits: A pretty and very fresh nose of red pinot fruit that evidences subtle mineral nuances leads to rich, round and attractively detailed flavors that possess a racy, precise and energetic finish. This is a lovely effort and fashioned in an unadorned and understated style. (85-87)/2013+

 2010 Fixin “La Place”: A ripe, complex and attractive mix of earthy dark berry fruit aromas is given added appeal by the presence of violet and cassis hints. There is good punch to the very supple and surprisingly silky middle weight flavors that are not only delicious but relatively refined in the context of the appellation. This lacks a bit of depth at present but if it adds even a little this could transform into an above average villages. (86-89)/2015+

 2010 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets Vieilles Vignes”: Deep ruby. A gentle touch of wood frames the ripe, complex and attractively complex nose featuring both red and blue pinot fruit that also displays tinges of violets, spice and earth. The textured medium-bodied flavors possess good dry extract that buffers the moderately firm shaping tannins on the nicely lingering finish. This is a very fine villages that has a good track record for rewarding mid-term cellaring. (88-91)/2016+

 2010 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). In 2010 this could pass for a villages level Vosne as there are abundant spice notes on the otherwise earthy, cool and ripe black currant and plum suffused nose. There is an abundance of energy on the well-delineated flavors where the supporting tannins are also relatively fine, all wrapped in a rich, vibrant and well-balanced finish. This will need some time to unwind but there is enough sap that it should be approachable in its youth if desired. Worth considering. (89-91)/2017+

 2010 Vosne-Romanée “Le Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and Tardy’s is the only separately declared example of which I am aware). A softly spiced and beautifully layered dark berry fruit nose leads to round, and velvety medium-bodied flavors that display silky tannins on the precise, punchy and linear finish. This is picture perfect Vosne and an exercise in harmony as the balance is impeccable. Recommended. (89-91)/2016+

 2010 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). A completely different aromatic profile speaks of very fresh, cool and restrained wild red berry fruit aromas that are liberally sprinkled with notes of underbrush, pungent earth, humus and that unique Gevrey animale character. There is admirably richness to the generous, vibrant and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that exude a fine minerality on the balanced, firm and lingering finish. A quality villages. (88-91)/2017+

 2010 Nuits St. Georges “Les Argillas”: (from a .40 ha parcel of vines that average about 40 years of age). A relatively reticent nose of warm earth, red currant and black raspberry plus a touch of forest floor gives way to delineated and highly energetic medium weight flavors that possess fine depth as well as excellent persistence. This well-balanced effort should require 8 to 10 years of cellar time before it reaches its apogee. (89-92)/2018+

 2010 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: A background touch of wood does not materially inhibit the expressiveness of the notably ripe primarily black fruit, spice and earth suffused nose. There is both excellent volume and richness to the focused, powerful and broad-scaled flavors that enjoy an abundance of dry extract before terminating in a velvety yet slightly austere finish. This is quite firm without being hard and this too will require at least a decade before it arrives at its full maturity. (90-93)/2020+

 

2009's Bottle tasting

Note: the Tardy ‘09s were bottled in January and February 2011.

 2009 Fixin “La Place”: A deft touch of wood sets off ripe, smoky and earthy red pinot fruit that is in keeping with the earthy, rich and solidly voluminous middle weight flavors that possess a soft, supple and very round mid-palate that retains a good sense of focus and punch on the balanced finish. 87/2014+

 2009 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets Vieilles Vignes”: Noticeable wood sets off otherwise ripe aromas of red berry liqueur and wet stone notes where the latter can also be found on the rich, delicious and well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that are not especially dense but the balance is impeccable on the lingering if slightly oaky finish. 88/2015+

 2009 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). Discreet wood mixes with ripe aromas of warm earth and liqueur-like red currant that also evidences a hint of the sauvage that continues onto the rich and attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess excellent dry extract that confers a velvety mouth feel onto the unusually precise finish. This is a really lovely villages as it offers fine volume and concentration yet with almost no rusticity. Recommended. 90/2015+

 2009 Vosne-Romanée “Le Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and Tardy’s is the only separately declared example of which I am aware). An exuberantly expressive and alluringly fresh and spicy nose speaks of cassis and plum aromas that precede rich and silky middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate fat that renders the firm supporting tannins almost invisible on the velvety and balanced finish. Despite the excellent level of richness, this is essentially a wine of finesse and even better, it is quintessentially Vosne in character. I should note that there is enough wood influence that it’s noticeable but given the density of material, it will probably be absorbed in time. 89/2014+

 2009 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). Just as is the case with the 2010 version relative to its stable mates, there is a completely different aromatic expression present here with a very fresh and cool dark berry fruit nose that also evidences notes of damp earth, humus and an animale hint. There is fine richness and depth to the full-bodied and serious middle weight flavors that also possess sufficient mid-palate fat to completely buffer the firm tannins on the velvety, mouth coating and solidly lingering finish. Lovely and well worth a look. 89/2015+

 2009 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: A highly spiced and mildly toasty nose features notes of anise, hoisin, clove and cinnamon as well as attractively fresh and bright aromas of plum and black berry liqueur. There is that very attractive quality of inner mouth perfume to the equally spicy and distinctly earthy broad-shouldered and seductively rich flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract on the suave yet solidly precise, balanced and powerful finish where a touch of mocha surfaces. This should effortlessly reward 8 to 10 years in the cellar. 91/2017+

 

Neal Martin - UK - Wine reports on Erobertparker.com - Janvier 2012:

 2010 Domaine Jean Tardy Fixin La Place 90
There is a candied element to the nose with succulent wild strawberry and raspberry notes interlaced with vanilla. The palate is succulent with juicy with crisp acidity counterbalanced the fleshy, succulent red fruit. There is a saline touch just on the finish. Very fine.

2010 Domaine Jean Tardy Echezeaux Les Treux 94-96
The Les Treux has a very opulent bouquet that marries a bit of the 2009s extrovert personality with 2010’s mineralite. Notes of raspberry, a little cassis and violet. The palate is medium-bodied with very fine tannins. Very good delineation and weight with structure and breadth on the finish. Beautifully assimilated oak, this is a serious Echezeaux.

2010 Jean Tardy Chambolle Musigny les Athets (91-93)

Quite deep in colour, the Les Athets has a gorgeous ripe vanilla-tinged bouquet with redcurrants, raspberries and a touch of violet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, slightly gritty tannins. There is very good weight and it is very focused, and then it eases off the accelerator leaving a very elegant finish. Excellent. Tasted January 2012.

2010 Jean Tardy Hautes Cotes de Nuits   ( 88-90)

This Haut Cote de Nuits delivers lovely ripe   dark cherry and cranberry fruit that is well-defined and very crisp. The   palate is blessed with an effervescent entry that tingles on the tongue.   There are lovely ripe strawberry and Morello flavours that inform the pure   persistent finish that is more than satisfying. Tasted January 2012.

 

 

2010 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges1er   cru  Aux Argillas ( 90-92 )

This    Argillas has a more rounded, sensual nose that Tardy’s other 2010s   with fresh strawberry, Morello and raspberry. The palate is medium-bodied   with crisp tannins that fan out nicely across this fleshy Pinot Noir. It is   elegant and silky smooth on the Vosne-like finish. It is very fine and maybe   earlier drinking than Tardy’s other 2010s. Tasted January 2012

 
             
   

 

 2010 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges   Vieilles Vignes Bas de Combe ( 89-91 )

The Bas de Combe is relatively muted on the   nose compared to Tardy’s other 2010 barrel samples. The palate is   medium-bodied with a slightly chewy entry, just a touch of reduction here,   leading to a structured but conservative finish. Fine, but it will need 5-8   years in bottle. Tasted January 2012.

 

 

Jancis Robinson - UK - Janvier 2012 :

 

 

Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits rouge 2010 : 16/20

 

 Pale purplish crimson. Delicate mix of red fruit and the tiniest hint of leafiness. Deliciously juicy and fresh and fluid. Lots of unassuming pleasure – even soon. Drink: 2013 to 2017

 

 Chambolle Musigny ' Les Athets' 2010 : 17/20

 

Mid purplish crimson. Fragrant, lightly spiced. Super silky and scented, with the tannins gripping a little more firmly on the fresh scented long finish. Such finesse and then you realise there is also lovely depth of fruit sustaining this elegance. Drink: 2016 to 2026

Gevrey Chambertin 'Champerriers' Vieille vigne 2010 : 17/20

 

 Spicy, peppery first impression. Sweet oak spice. Elegant and silky but with fine tannins and freshness driving to a long finish. Subtle but beautifully sustained. Drink: 2016 to 2017

 

 Nuits St Georges 'Bas de Combe' vieille vigne 2010 : 16.5/20

 

 Rich, seductive and riper smelling than most in this line up. But still has the hallmarks of elegance and freshness. Silky smooth, a good bit lighter on the palate than the Argillas. Drink: 2016 to 2022

 

 Vosne-Romanée 'Vigneux' 2010 : 17/20

 

A little less expressive than the Athets at the moment but there's still an inviting red-fruit fragrance. Darker and more savoury on the palate. Tense and taut but fine, fine tannins. Fluid and juicy over a fine-boned but fitting structure. Drink: 2017 to 2028

 

 Nuits St Georges 1er Cru 'Aux Argillas' 2010 : 17.5/20

Fragrant and inviting. Fine, so smooth but with well-hidden structural foundation. Touch of spice, silky dark fruit, wonderfully mellifluous and delicately seductive. Drink: 2017 to 2028

Dégustation Millésime 2009

Allen Meadows - USA - Burghound.com

2009 Bourgogne – Hautes Côtes de Nuits: A pretty and quite ripe nose of red and blue berry fruit nuanced by mineral hints

that carry over to the detailed, supple and utterly delicious flavors that possess fine length and more complexity than is typical

for the appellation. (84-87)/2012+

 

2009 Fixin “La Place”: A deft touch of wood sets off ripe and earthy red pinot fruit that is in keeping with the earthy, rich and

solidly voluminous middle weight flavors that possess a soft, supple and very round mid-palate that retains a good sense of

focus and punch on the balanced finish. (86-88)/2013+

 

2009 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets Vieilles Vignes”: A very fresh nose of upper register red pinot fruit and wet stone

notes that can also be found on the rich, delicious and well-delineated medium-bodied flavors that are not especially dense but

the balance is impeccable on the lingering finish. This is very Chambolle and more elegant than it usually is. (87-90)/2013+

 

2009 Nuits St. Georges “Au Bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes”: (from 50+ year old vines). Discreet wood mixes with ripe

aromas of warm earth and liqueur-like red currant that also evidences a hint of the sauvage that continues onto the rich and

attractively textured medium weight flavors that possess excellent dry extract that confers a velvety mouth feel onto the

unusually precise finish. This is lovely as it offers fine volume and concentration yet with almost no rusticity. (89-91)/2016+

 

2009 Vosne-Romanée “Le Vigneux”: (this vineyard is situated on the north side of the village next to Bas Maizières and

Tardy’s is the only separately declared example of which I am aware). An exuberantly expressive and alluringly fresh and

spicy nose speaks of cassis and plum aromas that precede rich and silky middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate

fat that renders the firm supporting tannins almost invisible on the velvety and balanced finish. Despite the excellent level of

richness, this is essentially a wine of finesse and even better, it is quintessentially Vosne in character. (89-91)/2015+

 

2009 Gevrey-Chambertin “Champs Perriers Vieilles Vignes”: (from vines planted in 1957). A completely different

aromatic expression is present here with a very fresh and cool dark berry fruit nose that also evidences notes of damp earth,

humus and an animale hint that marry into rich, full-bodied and serious middle weight flavors that also possess sufficient midpalate

fat to completely buffer the firm tannins on the velvety, mouth coating and solidly lingering finish. Lovely. (89-91)/2016+

 

2009 Echézeaux – Les Treux Vieilles Vignes: A highly spiced nose features notes of anise, hoisin, clove and cinnamon as

well as attractively fresh and bright aromas of plum and black berry liqueur that complement well the equally spicy and

distinctly earthy broad-shouldered and seductively rich flavors that brim with an abundance of dry extract on the suave yet

solidly precise, balanced and powerful finish. This should effortlessly reward 10 to 12 years in the cellar. (90-93)/2019+

2009 Jean Tardy Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Cuvee Maelie Rouge : Score 88

This has a soft, slightly jointed bouquet at first but coalescing nicely in the glass. The palate has a light, well defined entry, crisp tart red cherry fruit with pleasing weight on the finish. Fine. Tasted January 2011

2009 Jean Tardy Fixin la Place : Score 91

There is just a faint touch of cold tea on the nose, baked cherry and fresh strawberry. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, well integrated new oak, fleshy and alluring towards the gentle finish. Very fine and great value. Recommended. Tasted January 2011.

2009 Jean Tardy Chambolle Musigny les Athets : Score 91

This is a little closed on the nose, a little chalky at first but opening nicely with raspberry coulis and a touch of wild strawberry. The palate has a ripe entry, fleshy red-berried fruit with well-integrated new oak, smooth and harmonious towards the finish. Very fine. Tasted January 2011.

2009 Jean Tardy Gevrey Chambertin Champs Perrieres Vieilles Vignes: Score 92

The nose is quite similar to the Nuits Au Bas de Combe but with more accentuated cherry fruit. The palate is lithe and silky on the entry, very focused but clamming up a little towards the finish. Give this 2-3 years in bottle. Nice persistency on the finish. Tasted January 2011

2009 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges Aux Bas de Combe : Score 94

The Nuits blossoms in the glass: blackberry, raspberry coulis and a faint touch of wet clay all with very good definition. The palate is well balanced with supple tannins, silky Vosne-like tannins with a sensual finish. Very good length and such a caressing texture. Very alluring. Tasted January 2011

2009 Jean Tardy Vosne Romanee Vigneux : Score 93

This has a wonderful, lifted bouquet with raspberry, blueberry, fine mineralite and a real joie-de-vivre. The palate is ripe with very good lift, succulent and plush with a fine lattice of tannins lending it poise and sophistication. A little smudged right on the finish, but even so, this is lovely. Tasted January 2011

2009 Jean Tardy Echezeaux les Treux Grand Cru : Score 93+

This has ripe dark cherry fruit on the nose that takes some coaxing from the glass. Underlying mineralite developing in parallel with crushed rose petals. The palate has fine grip on the entry, fine acidity and tension, very precise towards the finish with good length. Not quite as immediate as the 2008, but very good clarity and a wine that will demand bottle age. Tasted January 2011.

Dom Jean Tardy, Vigneau 2008 Vosne- Romanee Score 16.5

When to drink 2013 to 2017

These samples were a representative blend from various barrels of different ages taken on 20 Dec!‘Just two drops’ of sulphur, I’m told. Solid and quite rich fruit, though quite a bit of fine tannin on thefinish. More obvious sweetness than most. A little bit of fizz, too. You can taste some new oak...

Dom Jean Tardy, Au Bas de Combe 2008 Nuits- St- Georges

 Score 17

When to drink 2012 to 2017 

60- year- old vines. About a third new oak. Light ruby. Smooth and racy and with lots of energy thoughjust a ‘kiss’ of new oak here. The wine reminds me of Guillaume Tardy’s stand- up hair. Vital, a bit like an electric shock. Very fresh fruit and this is super expressive. Well done! This wine has a beginning,middle and end. GV

Dom Jean Tardy, Les Treux Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru 2008 Echezeaux

Score 16.5+

When to drink 2014 to 2019

75- year- old vines and 100% new oak. Very much deeper colour, and bluer, than the Au Bas de Combe. Dense and rich but a bit raw too. I think the simpler wine is a much, much better buy. This is ambitious and it may well get there but it’s pretty awkward at the moment. Very dry finish.

2008 Jean Tardy Nuits St Georges Vieilles Vignes Bas de Combe : Score 88-90

This has a ripe, mulberry tinged nose that is just a little flat compared to others. Crunchy black fruits on the palate, just a touch of astringency but good weight towards the bilberry and iodine tinged finish. Fine. Drink 2012-2020. Tasted January 2010.

2008 Jean Tardy Vosne Romanee Vigneux : Score 91-93

This has a beautiful, well defined bouquet with raspberry, strawberry, a touch of smoke and mulberry. Great lift and expression. The palate is medium-bodied with rigid tannins, a little disjointed at the moment but for a 2008, this is quite powerful with blacb cherry, boysenberry and plum. The finish is grippy and slightly austere, suggesting this is an Echezeaux that demand aging. Drink 2012-2025. Tasted January 2010.

2008 Jean Tardy Echezeaux Vieille Vignes les Treux Grand Cru : Score 93-95

This has an attractive, sappy lifted bouquet with bright black cherries, blueberry, cassis and a touch of bilberry. Good definition. The palate is peppery on the entry, quite sharp tannins but pure and focused with a citric finish. Allowing this to unfurl on the glass, it attain ever-greater clarity and poise, developing subtle notes of redcurrant and cassis with real mineralite on the finish. Magnificent! Drink 2012-2025. Tasted January 2010.

Dom Jean Tardy, Bas de Comme 2007 Nuits-St-Georges Rouge
16.5 Drink 2010-14
A little reduced on the nose.
Sulphidey struck match notes. Sweetly oaky on the palate. Fresh, open and juicy. Already very smooth but needs air for the aroma to emerge. (JH)

Dom Jean Tardy, Boudots Premier Cru 2007 Nuits-St-Georges Rouge 16 Drink 2011-15
Slight smoky reduction. Pretty dry, moderate fruit but just a little bit lean and hard on the finish. (JH)

Dom Jean Tardy, Les Vigneux 2007 Vosne-Romanée 16.5 Drink 2011-14
Sweet slightly reduced dark fruit. Fresh, fine-grained, juicy and appealing in a lightish style. (JH)

Dom Jean Tardy, Chaumes Premier Cru 2007 Vosne-Romanée 17 Drink 2011-15
All these Tardy wines are a little reduced but that's fine at this stage, though it makes them harder to assess in terms of the aromas. In the mouth it is juicy and fesh and nicely aromatic. Long, fresh finish. (JH)

Dom Jean Tardy Grand Cru 2007 Echézeaux 17.5 Drink 2012-17
Smoky, slightly meaty - definitely smoked bacon - and a little bit roasted but also perfumed. Aromatic mid palate, intense dark fruit flavours and tight but fine-grained tannis. Long with attractive bite on the finish. (JH)

Bourgogne Aligoté 2007 

The nose has all the crispness of apple and lime a vibrant freshness that also features on the palate. The fruit is overlaid with floral fragrances that to its charm. Sweeter fruit shows on the mid palate with an aromatic hint of cumin towards the back adding to the complexity. 

 91/100             2009-10 

Bourgogne Passe Tout Grains 2007 

The nose has some nice black fruit intermingling with fresher red. On the palate there is more red fruit in evidence, its freshness combined with slightly aggressive tannins give a firm feel to the mid palate. Right at the back there is blueberry and bramble coming through giving some richness on the finish. 

88/100             2009-11 

 

 

 

Fixin 2007 “La Place” 2007 

Sweet bramble gives fleshiness on the nose balanced by some fresher underlying red cherry. The palate is fruit rich a weight of flavour that fleshes out the mid palate. Black fruits, bramble and bilberry intermingle with brighter mulberry all helping complexity. The flavours last well. 

90/100             2009 (late) – 2013 

 Nuits-Saint-Georges “Aux Bas de Combe” Vieille Vignes 2007 

Blackberry is very much in evidence with behind that some black cherry all refreshed by red fruited mulberry.  There is a richer feel on the mid-palate the black fruit shows through well balanced by some freshness. The tightness on the finish shows its youth but there is a lot to show. 

 91/100             2011-15 

 Nuits-Saint-Georges 1er Cru “Les Boudots” 2007 

The fruit on the nose is concentrated, all quite firm lots of black fruited bilberry. There is an attractive mix; ripe fruit backed by fresher firmer flavours all ensuring complexity. Layers of bilberry and black cherry are underpinned with mulberry and red cherry, a lovely mix of flavours. Ripeness is apparent right at the back, good weight yet freshness giving elegance. 

92/100             2011-15 

Vosne-Romanée “Vigneux” 2007 

There is richness to the fruit mix on the nose. It is all there on the palate but at the moment it is very structured rather closing down the middle. Layers of fruit give interest sweet damson and sloe intermingling with mulberry and bilberry. Towards the back the tannins feel firm but ripe showing the potential. 

92/100             2011-15 

Vosne-Romanée 1er Cru “Les Chaumes” 2007 

The nose is very tight with not a lot of fruit in evidence at the moment but the palate shows the potential. Black fruits tend to dominate, bilberry and sloe but behind these are some fresher mulberry and cherry. The tannin cage encircles the fruit at the moment but there is real power to the flavours and they will come through giving lots of complexity. 

92/100             2012/17 

 Chambolle-Musigny “Les Athets” 2007 

Although it is more red fruited on the nose there is lots of sweetness. The fruit has power, a lovely mix of flavours giving a feel of complexity brightened by some mulberry freshness. On the back palate the tannins feel firm yet ripe allowing fruit expression. There is richness yet a lovely racy elegance. 

 93/100             2012-18 

 Echézeaux Grand Cru “Les Freux” Vieille Vignes 2007 

There is a lot happening on the nose, first red fruits then sweeter, richer black. The pattern is there on the palate mulberry and cherry seem to be dominant but ripe fleshy bramble shows backed by sloe and bilberry. The power of flavour enriches the mid palate, the tannins are firm yet they feel ripe giving a weight of fruit on the finish. It is a very stylish wine.
