“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." - Alan Meadows, Burghound
The vineyards that Jean Tardy inherited from his father in 1966 were entirely leased from Domaine Méo-Camuzet, and 30 years later, these still make up some of Jean's best holdings. Victor Tardy, Jean’s father, worked at Méo for 25 years and because of his strong bond with Etienne Camuzet, he was offered these vineyards in métayage (a sharecropping agreement). Over the years, he has expanded the domaine which now has more than 12 acres of their own vineyards in Nuits-St.-Georges, Vosne Romanée and Chambolle-Musigny. The current winemaker, Jean’s son Guillaume, who studied winemaking and traveled the world, has come back to work alongside his dad, and feathered in some modern winemaking to this traditional estate. Today the wines are better than ever.
