No comparison to the 2000 tonight. Dense and ponderous fruit is heavy and tired. the older wine is much fresher and easier to drink

This is my third try on a third of fourth. And the there is an off "effervescence". A fizziness that conflicts with the wine. Could three out of four be bad? Or does the effervescent fizziness affect the bottles here. Any observations are appreciated. Oh these are 1.5 liter bottles from Garagiste.

I love big and full bodied cdp. But this is too pruny.
