Reviews 91 points Burghound "Here too there is just enough wood influence to notice suffusing the decidedly spicy aromas of red and dark pinot fruit, plum, herbal tea and a whiff of crushed anise. There is a highly seductive texture to the round, supple and vibrant larger-scaled flavors that terminate in a highly refreshing and youthfully austere finale that displays focused power. This balanced, and more concentrated, effort could also use better depth so at least some bottle aging should prove to be beneficial. (AM)"

About Domaine Jean Tardy et Fils

Based in Vosne-Romanee, Domaine Jean Tardy is an ascendant star of the Cote de Nuits. Helmed by Guillaume Tardy since 2011, it's been an exciting address to follow for the last several years. In 2021, this tiny estate handily navigated the vintage AND implemented the first year of its organic conversion. Yields were down nearly a half, but the grapes were healthy and ripened fully, thanks to intensive vineyard work. Guillaume was one of the first in Burgundy to harvest this year, and his six hectares were fully picked within four days. Grapes were 100% destemmed and given a week-long cold soak, before being gently pressed into oak, with 25-75% new depending on the cuvee. Most saw two winters on the fine lees before bottling. Even with additional punch-downs to reinforce the spine of this vintage, the wines are fresh and lacy. Echezeaux is the obvious star of the lineup, with old vines from 1937 lending incredible depth and presence. Still, as at Leroux, the "lesser" wines will surprise and exceed expectations, from the Cuvee Maelie, drawn from 60-year-old vines above Vosne to Gevrey’s Champerrier, with a third of a hectare of vines dating to 1958. These are serious and deeply engaging wines!
