Jean Tardy Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru Les Boudots VV 2002
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. This Pinot Noir matures in 100% new oak. The old vines give a dense, spicy fruit flavour backed by a rich and muscular structure with flair and finesse.
