2013 Domaine Jean Tardy et Fils Fixin La Place$19.99
We tasted a range of Tardy wines that have been long forgotten and found this gem in the group. This is drinking very well right now and has aged rather nicely. Such an elegant and balanced vintage shines through here, and is a very refined vineyard driven example for this appellation. Fixin is a village just north of Gevrey Chamberttin. The Tardy's own .42-hectare parcel in this vineyard of fairly old vines. Cool red fruits, a touch of minerality smokiness, dried rose pedals and a touch of herbs on the nose while the palate retains a good core a fruit and with a very velvety texture with good structure to age a few more years. This wine is a $60+ per bottle in Europe, we were able to negotiate some better pricing, and at $20 it’s an absolute steal!
