Jean Tardy Bourgogne Hautes Cotes de Nuits Cuvée Maelie 2008
The ebullient Jean Tardy, in partnership with his son Guillaume, is a perfectionist and huge enthusiast of the wines of Burgundy. A visit to his cellar, or a conducted tour of his disparate plots, will immediately confirm these facts. A tasting here is always enjoyable, certainly for the high quality of the wines, but also for the Tardys’ warmth. Powerful bouquets, rich pure flavours and good balance are the hallmarks here. A firm believer in the compatibility of carefully selected fruit and new oak. Very smooth and fruity style of Pinot Noir. Soft red fruit and balanced acidity make this elegant Bourgogne a pleasure to drink. Very easy drinking, the next glass is always calling!
