Opened and poured, and while not yet singing, it still has much to say for itself. Bright red fruit, but also a veil of earthiness and floral notes. Caressing on the palate, but still very primary fruity. Delicious, but give any bottles at least 3-5 more years, as the wine was significantly more full and interesting 2 hours later. It was very good to peek in on this.
By the way, the label said Vieille Vigne, so I guess there isn't much of this wine. One poor old vine. Talk about small plots of land!
Talk less, smile more. Don't let them know what you're against or what you're for.
