Is this too old?

When discussing the day’s wines via text messages I have been reminded that Vincent Dancer makes wines for enjoying sooner rather than later. I wonder if that is the problem with this.

Meursault Premier Cru Perrieres 2002, Vincent Dancer

The nose is very buttery and fat, with an oaky character which I find rather unsophisticated. There is some nice fruit and minerality underneath this, but basically this nose unbalanced and crass. The palate is hot and fat, and its elements don’t seem terribly harmonious. It doesn’t seem to have any obvious faults, but there is something really flat and dull about this. Where is the balance and beauty of this great vineyard? Not in this bottle, that is for sure.
