"The 2012 Nuits St. Georges Vieilles Vignes Bas de Combe has a more tertiary nose compared to Guillaume Tardy-s other 2012s: darker fruit, undergrowth, field mushroom and even a marine influence that might be enhanced after bottling. The palate is medium-bodied with crisp tannins. This is tightly wound, reticent, almost broody, but there is superb tension if not quite the persistency on the finish. This could be in a sullen patch, so it will be intriguing to reassess this later in January. I suspect will require four or five years in bottle." 88-90 point

Om tidligere årgang har vi følgende:

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
"


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."

Om tidligere årgang skrev Neal Martin
"The Bas de Combe is relatively muted on the nose compared to Tardy’s other 2010 barrel samples. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly chewy entry, just a touch of reduction here, leading to a structured but conservative finish. Fine, but it will need 5-8 years in bottle"

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.
