The impressive win crowned a remarkable first full season in charge for former Real midfielder Zidane, who led the team to a first La Liga title in five years, delivering the club's first European Cup and league double since 1958.
However, with Modric's steadying influence increasing, the tide turned in favour of Zinedine Zidane's side and they stormed to victory, firing more goals past Buffon than the three he had conceded in the rest of the tournament.
"We are disappointed", goalkeeper Buffon said in comments published on the website of European governing body UEFA. "We are a very good team and we deserved to win the league and the Champions League, it's not been an easy job".
"Nobody has won two Champions League in a row and we did it. We pressed a lot more and physically we won the game there too, so I'm very happy".

"I told the players to keep what they were doing but to play wider and put more pressure on them, and I said that when we got the ball play as you know how", Zidane said.
"As a team we played very well in the quarter-finals, the semi-finals and today, but you need a guy to score the goals and he did it again". In the run-up to the final, it sounded like Juventus were favourites and were playing a team who'd reached the final by chance. If somebody wins the Ballon d'Or and scores so many goals, obviously it's a big advantage.
"The root cause of this was panic, to understand what triggered it we will have to wait a while", said top local official Renato Saccone, the prefect of Turin.
"It's a long season, but I'm motivated, I'm happy".
"It's been an extraordinary season".
