Jean Tardy Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru Maupertuis 2006
- In stock
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. The fruit dominance of the 2006 vintage is well balanced with the one hundred percent wood treatment. There is a smoky presence beneath the black fruit and raspberry flavours that saturate the palate. An exceedingly long finish but the wood is not yet fully integrated. One for the cellar, drink from 2013.
