Domaine Tardy, Nuits St. Georges, Bourgogne, Frankrig

Beskrivelse:

The Wine Advocate
"The 2011 Nuits-St-Georges Aux Bas de Combe Vieille Vignes comes from a 0.45-hectare parcel of 65-year-old vines that, to quote Guillaume Tardy, is the “most Vosne-Romanee of Nuits-St-Georges.” It has one of the more intense, perhaps precocious bouquets in 2011 with lifted plush blueberry and dark cherry scents. The palate is very smooth and silky on the entry with well-integrated new oak giving it a glossy sheen without denuding it of terroir expression. It slips down the throat almost too easily?but that is not a bad thing when it comes to wine. Drink now-2019." 91 point

I have met Guillaume Tardy a few times in London, but this was the first time that I dropped by at his winery on the Route Nationale in Vosne (word of warning for first-time visitors: blink and you will miss the sign.) The roots of the domaine stem from his family’s metiers for Domaine Meo-Camuzet and as Jean-Nicolas Meo regained control, the Tardy family had to effectively rebuild their own domaine. So Jean Tardy began acquiring small vineyard parcels, though never less than a plot that could regularly yield six barrels per vintage in order for them to be worth bottling on their own. Guillaume himself started working with his father in 1997 but his first vintage was 2001, after working at the Picardy Winery in Australia. His 2011s were bottled in February. Guillaume told me that he is looking for silky tannins and freshness and that neatly sums up his wines that I have praised in the past and have no hesitation in doing so again.

Om tidligere årgange har vi følgende:

The Burghound
"In 2010 this could pass for a villages level Vosne as there are abundant spice notes on the otherwise earthy, cool and ripe black currant and plum suffused nose. There is an abundance of energy on the well-delineated flavors where the supporting tannins are also relatively fine, all wrapped in a rich, vibrant and well-balanced finish that displays just a hint of rusticity. This will need some time to unwind but there is enough sap from the old vines that it should be approachable in its youth if desired. Well worth considering as this is a first-rate villages." 90 point

Domaine Tardy
Historien om Domaine Tardy begynder i 1920, hvor Victor Tardy begynder at arbejde for Domaine Camuzet. Victor får 25 år senere af Etienne Camuzet tilladelse til at forpagte et par vinmarker. I 1966 overtager Jean driften fra sin far, hvor han udvider med flere vinmarker (Clos Vougeot, Nuits-Saint-Georges 1. Cru, Vosne-Romanée 1. Cru) fra Meo-Camuzet, igen i henhold til en aktie-afgrøde aftale.

I 1981 begynder Jean at købe egne vinmarker. Indkøbene kulminerer med de tre landsbyvinmarker: Chambolle-Musigny i 1984, Nuits-Saint-Georges i 1989 og Vosne-Romanée i 1999. Derudover blev endnu én metayage (forpagtning) deal lavet i 2002 af en parcel i Echezeaux. De seneste erhvervelser er Fixin (første årgang 2006) og i 2007 har han også skaffet parceller i Gevrey-Chambertin og i Hautes-Côtes de Nuits. I 2010 tilføjede så Nuits St. Georges 1. Cru Aux Argillas til porteføljen.

I 2001 får Jean's søn Guillaume overdraget ansvaret for vinfremstillingen. Baggrunden er i orden da han har læst på VITI i Beaune og University of Oenology i Dijon efterfulgt af otte måneders arbejde som assisterende vinmager i Australien.

Guillaume arbejder på samme traditionelle måde som sin far, men laver dog nogle subtile ændringer i retning af hans egen mere moderne stil, evolution og ikke revolution. Der startes med pløjning mellem vinrækkerne, der bruges nu naturlig gødning i stedet for kemikalier. Høstudbyttet nedsættes til 35-40 hl. pr. ha. Der benyttes flere nye fade i kælderen end før. Guillaume er meget stolt af sine vine og det med rette grund.

Domaine Tardy er en "Rising Star" i Vosne, og den verdenskendte restauratør Alain Ducasse har nu også fået øjnene op for Tardy's fremragende vine fra Vosne Romanee, Nuit St. Georges og Echezaux. De er nu at finde på hans franske restauranter.
