Jean Tardy Nuits Saint Georges Au Bas de Combe VV 2005
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 flavours are rich, full and sweet. A textured mid-palate and superior concentration with fine tannins. A wine of finesse with a spicy finish.
