Domaine Phillipe Charlopin-Parizot, Vosne-Romanée Echézeaux Grand Cru 1999

Domaine Phillipe Charlopin-Parizot, Vosne-Romanee Echezeaux Grand Cru 1999

Slightly clumsy if ample blackfruited nose: blackcurrant, blackcherry, and sloe.  Plump, dense and extracted.  OK acidity but not alot of grip.  Slightly dumb and ungainly.  It is certainly possible this will eventually shake off its present awkwardness but today this is a disappointment, even in the context of how we view Echézeaux as also-ran grand cru.  Could this be an awkward stage?  Did Phillipe pick a bit overipe in ’99? Certainly most of the ’99s need more time but astringency may be an issue here so check two years down the road to re-assess.  Now – 2015.
