This is classic young La Romanée in style with its tight, reserved, borderline austere black fruit beautifully framed in Vosne spice and a deft touch of new wood. The rich, medium weight flavors offer outstanding flavor intensity and are supported by firm tannins that presently dominate the mid-palate but not the finish. This is a very big wine, in fact one of the biggest wines of the vintage and this should be purchased only with the clear intent to cellar it. Classy, extremely complex and altogether fine delivered in a very understated style. It isn't quite at the same level as the incredible '99 but it is a worthy successor. Allen Meadows, Burghound.

Tasted at the La Romanée vertical at Domaine du Comte Liger-Belair. The 2000 La Romanée Grand Cru was a Bouchard Père et Fils bottlings and came from Louis-Michel's own cellar. It was picked on September 16, according to the estate's records. It has a glossy bouquet with quite a lot of oak submerging what appears to be some attractive red fruit underneath. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, moderate acidity, a little dryness developing toward the finish with white pepper and leathery notes. There is decent depth here, but like the 1998 it is missing charm and nuance. Tasted June 2015. eRobertParker.com.July, 2015

Oaky black fruits can be discerned in the aromatics of the 2000 La Romanee. This feminine, medium-bodied effort is a big, fresh, black cherry, coffee, violet, and black olive-flavored wine. Loads of firm yet ripe tannin make an appearance in its long, muscular finish. Pierre Rovani, The Wine Advocate. Jun 2003

Bouchard Père & Fils is one of Burgundy’s most important houses, and the largest vineyard holder in the Côte d’Or with 130 hectares of vineyards. It’s holdings include 12 hectares of grand cru vineyards, with significant plots in Corton and Corton-Charlemagne, Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet. It holds more than 70 hectares of premier cru vineyards, most of which are in the Côte de Beaune, including one of Beaune’s most famous wines: Beaune Grèves Vigne de l’Enfant Jésus.

The company is owned by the Henriot group, which took over in 1995. Run from their impressive headquarters in Beaune, Bouchard has been making better and better wines in the past twenty years, and can be considered a benchmark producer of both red and white Burgundy.

Bouchard’s holdings in Chevalier-Montrachet are their jewel, and they hold Chevalier-Montrachet La Cabotte in its entirety. This vineyard sits just above Bouchard’s holding of Le Montrachet, and is one of the finest examples of Chardonnay. The house also has grand cru holdings in Chambertin, Clos de Vougeot, Echézeaux and Bonne Mares in the Côte de Nuits.
