2000 Vougeraie, Vougeot 1er Les Crastry to find this wine...
Medium, medium-plus ruby-red colour. The nose is deep, edged with sweet oak spice and more than a hint of cedar – reminiscent of an 04 but less ‘high-toned’. In the mouth this is sweetly ripe and with a little fat in its texture but also a nice core of acidity. Plush but tasty though the decent length finish still shows a little bitter oaky element that has almost become bitter chocolate rather than just ‘bitter’ – a little creamy coconut too – but also some more cedar. For the first hour it was open it was alternately yummy and engaging then herby and bitter, I expected improvement, but instead the palate became a little prickly/pickley. Basically this is all over the place today – unusual for a 2000 – so I can’t recommended it.
Rebuy – No (I hope the 5 in the cellar improve…)

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?

    Bill, wondering if you have tried (recently or not) this producer’s 2000 Vougeot Blanc, Clos du Prieur or his 2000 Corton, Clos du Roi? Thanks!

    Hi Drew – there’s this one on my NoteFinder page, but no Clos du Roi – sorry:

    Gunflint, sweet fruit and waxy notes mark a lovely and interesting nose. The palate is rich and has almost enough acidity for me. Nicely complex, I see this as a wine that could pair superbly with the right dish – a very good wine.

      Hi Milton
      No, I have another 5 in the cellar, but I’m in no rush…
