Lot #304. Jacky Truchot Morey-Saint-Denis Clos Sorbè 2005

Description: Consists of 1 Bottle, 0.75L
Score: 92+ JG.
"2005 was Jacky Truchot’s final vintage of a long and illustrious career. Since his official retirement and the sale of most of his Domaine’s vineyards, he has only continued to make a bit of Morey premier cru Sorbè for his own enjoyment, from a small plot of vines that he retained when he sold the rest of the estate. Sorbè lies next to his well-known bottling of Clos Sorbè, which was sold to David Duband along with the rest of his former estate vineyards. Jackie’s 2005 Clos Sorbè is excellent, but still youthful and moderately closed down, reluctantly offering up scents of red and black cherries, raw cocoa, gamebird, a lovely base of soil, woodsmoke, gentle spice tones and just a whisper of cedar. On the palate the wine is fullish, pure and reserved today, with good depth at the core, tangy acids, ripe tannins and lovely length and grip on the promising finish. This needs at least another four or five years to stir, and as it is Jacky’s last official vintage, there is no sense in rushing to drink it." John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87, Jun 2020
