2000 La Truffière, Romanée Saint-Vivanttry to find this wine...
Medium-plus colour. Width though limited depth on the nose, but the depth on show has a soft and smooth feel. In the mouth it’s clearly got an executive texture, plenty of well-textured tannin bubbling below the soft, concentrated fruit and an understated acidity that gives no hint to the vintage – neither does the fruit profile. If anything it’s just slightly fresher than the DRC of the same vintage, though without that complexity. I creamy hint lingers very long on the finish. For the vineyard it’s a decent effort and for the vintage it’s a very good result. At the price paid (about €80 three or four years ago) it’s a hit!
Rebuy – Yes
