Jean Tardy Bourgogne Cuvée Maelie 2016 - Burgundy, France


The Story

Guillaume Tardy, still in his 30s, has been running this domaine for a decade or so now and continues to make real progress. In fact in the last three vintages or so he has clearly nudged the domaine up a gear. The changes he has made in the vineyards and in the cuverie have been gradual rather than dramatic but it seems as if everything has suddenly come together. Despite a lack of prestigious 1ers Crus the reputation of his wine is now very high. Stylistically, the main difference in the wines is perhaps the quality of the tannins, which seem less rustic and much finer and silkier. There is still substance to the wines but they have more charm, consistency through the palate and complexity.

M+Q Notes

These 43-year-old vines are located just above Vosne-Romanée, at the start of the Hautes Côtes de Nuits in Concoeur. Due to its position close to the Côte de Nuits, there’s not much of a lag in ripening so the vineyard can be picked just five to seven days after the crus. The wines from this parcel tend to show a nice aromatic complexity with supple tannins. They can be drunk quite young but also have potential to age. Notes of dark cherry, spice and earth. Vibrant with a subtle minerality.
