Domaine Ponsot, Clos de la Roche Vieilles Vignes 2000

The Clos de la Roche 2000 from Domine Ponsot is a lovely fully mature wine. The bouquet is open and expressive with red berry fruit and sous-bois – notes of orange and truffles. On the palate mature red fruit – quite rich and transparent for the vintage. It offer a fine complexity and a good display of terroir – but is fading slightly after some time in the glass. A typical 2000 – very harmonious but lacking a bit of focus, depth and energy. Drink now – before the slightly oxidative note in the finish get more pronounced. A lovely glass of mature pinot.
