The Wine Advocate

"From 60 year old vines, Tardy’s 2007 Nuits-St.-Georges Aux bas de Combe Vieilles Vignes smells of new leather, peat, and lightly cooked blackberry and mulberry fruit. Well-concentrated and ripe if a bit stewed on the palate, it finishes with impressive length; pepper and chalk accents; and both noticeable gum-numbing and caramel, reflecting a choice of heavier barrel toasting that Guillaume Tardy made in an attempt to complement this wine’s natural smokiness. But there is enough sweetness of fruit for this to convince, and I would tentatively consider it worthy of 6 or more years’ cellaring"


"Young Guillaume Tardy took the reins from his father Jean in 2003, and beginning with the 2008 vintage has had to cede back to Meo-Camuzet the 50% share of fruit they long-retained for farming prime parcels in Nuits Boudots, adjacent Vosne Chaumes, and Clos Vougeot. While de-stemming entirely, Tardy is able to still retain a significant share of un-ruptured berries in the fermentor. Among his other habits intended to  emphasize purity of fruit are absence or racking and bottling in December or January (although tardy malos resulted in the 2008s being bottled a bit later). I was especially surprised – as my scores suggest – to have found the 2007 vintage here so evenly-matched in quality with 2008, which Guillaume Tardy said was the more difficult of the two for him."


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.
