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!
There behind the glass lies a real blade of grass. Be careful as you pass. Move along. Move along.
