Jean Tardy 2019

Guillaume is one of those young, single-minded winemakers that pursue a particular style of winemaking, crafting what you might call “modern” red Côte de Nuits that are pure and rich, silky smooth in texture, Pinot that glides across the palate. There is a purity that often reminds me of Christophe Perrot-Minot’s wines, the tannins always smooth and the fruit extremely pure. NEAL MARTIN, Vinous.com

Domaine Jean Tardy is now recognised as one of the leading producers in the Côte d’Or today. JASPER MORRIS, Inside Burgundy

Tardy continues to do great work with his mostly villages-level appellations and his wines are known for their ability to drink well young but age extremely well. ALLEN MEADOWS, Burghound

I like the style here: rich, balanced and pure, plump and intensely flavoured. CLIVE COATES, The Wines of Burgundy

[ON THE 2019 VINTAGE] The red wines are simply brilliant: most of what I’ve tasted so far has been beautifully balanced, combining a seductive depth of fruit with very classical levels of acidity; and nor is there any coarseness or rusticity, even if the wines have the structure they need for the long haul. At this early stage, 2019 appears to number among the most compelling red Burgundy vintages of the millennium. WILLIAM KELLEY, The Wine Advocate

Guillaume Tardy has worked wonders at his family’s estate since taking the reins back in the early 2000s and today he is regarded as one of the brightest young stars in the Cote. The wines he crafts lean towards the modern, entirely destemmed, pure, silky-textured, richly fruited renditions that are wonderfully enticing to drink young, but are incredibly well-made with all that exuberant fruit sewn together with a web of fine grained tannin that will see the wines age majestically.

For those who seek out purity and intensity of flavour, Neal Martin thinks “there is a purity that often reminds me of Christophe Perrot-Minot”, Tardy’s wines are a thrill ride, masterfully packaged with freshness and tannin framing a plush, dense core of fruit. The 2019 vintage seems tailor-made for wines of this ilk and as you can see from the reviews below, Guillaume has delivered on all fronts. His collection of old vine sites turning on the fireworks and given us wines of depth, concentration and most importantly balance. Jasper Morris calls the Champerrier “long and lovely, full of energy” while Neal Martin calls the Bas de Combe “more Premier Cru than Village Cru.” As seems to be the case these days, the village crus at Tardy really punch above their weight.
