Domaine Jean Tardy & Fils, Aux Bas de Combe, Vieilles Vignes, Nuits-Saint-Georges 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.
The ‘combe’ itself sits right between Vosne and Nuits and the vines in this parcel are around 80 years of age. Guillaume thinks of it as having the elegance of a Vosne with the strength of a Nuits. So Vosne Romanée mouthfeel with NSG tannins. In the glass it simply is sensationally good. A wine that pirouettes on the tightrope between exuberance and restraint.
