2015 Nuits-St-Georges VV `Bas de Combe`
- Wine colour
- France > Burgundy > Côte de Nuits
- Domaine Jean Tardy & Fils
This is from a great piece of terroir, just below Boudots in Nuits and above Réas in Vosne, with 80 year old vines. In 2015 it didn’t disappoint, displaying layers of fruit and spice, with richness, power and concentration. The tannins are sweet and succulent with uplifting
acidity and a long, persistent finish. Drink from 2020.
`This is the first wine to display appreciable wood toast but not so much as to really fight with the notably ripe spiced cassis and warm earth aromas. The dense, serious and vibrant medium-bodied flavors also possess a velvety texture before culminating in a palate coating finale that delivers excellent persistence for a villages level Nuits. This is definitely worth considering.` 89-91, www.burghound.com
