I never understood the 1999 out of barrel, however a decade later, this is one mightily impressive Vaucrains. The nose is incredibly pure with wild strawberry, raspberry, crushed stone and stupendous delineation. The palate is plush in texture, very generous although there is still some oak to be subsumed. Very fresh and vibrant with a Chambolle-like finish, there is a sense of completeness to this  E9. But it would benefit from another 2-3 years in bottles.  - Wine Advocate
