Domaine Jean Tardy & Fils, Aux Argillas, Nuits- Saint-Georges 1er Cru AOP
Famous for being the métayer of Domaine Méo-Camuzet for decades, the Tardy family domaine covers a total area of 4.5 ha and is composed of 9 appellations spread from the north to the south of the Côte de Nuits. The vines are trained with respect to the soil and the plants, with natural ploughing and the addition of compost performed. Wines are fermented in temperature-controlled vats, then aged for 15 to 16 months in barrels. A large proportion of new oak is used (from 30% for Village to 70% for Grands Crus) adding a rustic character to the wines.
Located at the northern end of Nuits-St-Georges, these 41-year-old vines give nice fruit complexity and very elegant tannins. The wines have good intensity, structure and freshness and are not as masculine as the 1er cru from the southern part of this village. Here again, Jean and Guillaume go after finesse and elegance, once again a reminder of their situation on the Vosne-Romanée side.
