Located in Vosne-Romanee and in the highly capable hands of Guillaume Tardy, Domaine Jean Tardy is now recognised as one of the leading producers in the Côte d'Or. Originally the vineyards were entirely leased from Domaine Méo-Camuzet, and, 30 years later, these still make up the majority of Guillaume’s holdings. The family have over the years added to these and the domaine now has 5 hectares of vineyards in Nuits-St-Georges, Vosne Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny.
The 2021 Nuits Saint-Georges Aux Argillats 1er Cru has a ripe, pastille-like bouquet with perfumed violet scents filtering through the wild strawberry and Tayberry aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins, bright red berry fruit, raspberry and strawberry, white pepper and orange rind furnishing the cohesive, though not powerful finish. Maybe it just needs a little more persistence on the aftertaste. Neal Martin, Vinous.
