Jean Tardy Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots 2001
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. Jean’s son, Guillaume, runs the estate in Vosne-Romanée. Les Boudots is the estate's finest wine. Shows concentrated cherry kirsch fruit flavours. Has great ageing potential.
