Blink and you’d literally miss Domaine Jean Tardy, an envelope-sized sign by a driveway off the RN74 just outside Vosne Romanée the only indication that you are in the right place. Unprepossessing as this domaine looks, the wines continue to show plenty of personality and Guillaume does a particularly impressive line in vieilles vignes lieu dits (old vine, single vineyards), which allow him to “avoid making a bad marriage between the wrong parcels”. The results are always seductive and digestible and compete with premier crus for quality and complexity.
"The 2015 Fixin la Place, matured in 30% new oak, offers black cherries, bilberry and iodine on the nose, iris following soon after. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin that combine neatly with the fleshy texture, fanning out with confidence with plenty of blackcurrant and spice box towards the finish. This is a stylish Fixin and should drink nicely from one or two years in bottle." 90 pts, Neal Martin, WA
"(13% natural alcohol): Deep ruby-red. Pungent aromas of blackberry, menthol, licorice and violet. Intense, juicy and penetrating; still quite primary and tight but nicely balanced. The late-arriving tannins make this a relatively supple style of Fixin." 87-89 pts, Stephen Tanzer, Vinous
