99 joseph drouhin, côtes de nuits villages

I was in sunny Ludwigshafen yesterday – and I don’t mean on the Bodensee! – only a 17 hour round-trip!
By the time I returned home it was too late to open something, but I see I did not deliver you a note on this bottle yet:
1999 Joseph Drouhin, Côtes de Nuits Villages try to find this wine...
Medium colour. A deep nose of spice and cedar plus faint, sweet and maturing background fruit. Quite silky, a slightly unripe impression to the fruit, good acidity and largely diminished tannin. A pretty length until some finishing bitterness. Interesting parts and great value, but missing charm today.
Rebuy – No
