Located in Echallat, the Vaudon Tardif vineyard spans some 60 hectares spread across the Grande Champagne and Fins Bois terroirs. Its owner, Pierre Vaudon, likes to say that the search for harmony can sometimes take torturous paths he calls “drawbridges” and “small rivers”. Grown in the clay-limestone terroir of Fins Bois and produced from a blend of two vintages, this version invites us to discover an aromatic and gustatory palette in which the three tasting stages are intimately linked. The grand finale comes with a particularly expressive floral transition between the palate and the finish.
Profile: the full-bodied initial nose is characterised by notes of cherry, sweet spice (cinnamon), candied citrus fruit and exotic fruit (mango). Vanilla pod and root ginger then bring lots of foundation. The nuanced attack is honeyed, fruity and vanilla. The end of the palate is intensely floral, as is the finish perfumed with lilac and carnation. The retro-nasal olfaction is spicy and the empty glass hot (Cayenne).
