Maybe a case of palate opinion and expectations regarding acidity.
I have to say that your tasting note is what I'd have expected. Hard to say whether that acid kick in the arse might have mellowed with a few years more. Might just get worse.
I'd personally, given a general rule of thumb, in absence of any other additional information, have kept this a year or two more.
"Not going anywhere"--Possibly a comment on Beckham. Good luck to him in trying to fire up enthusiasm for soccer in the USA--better folks than him (e.g., Pele) have tried without success. More power to him if he succeeds. If you've got any more of the Les Jalets, it might be interesting to see what another year or two does. I don't have any of this wine so I can't do the experiment myself.
