Robe assez intense. Le premier nez (et le second aussi d'ailleurs!) poivronne à donf. Certes d'est plutôt du poivron mûr que du poivron vert, mais c'est assez envahissant. Heureusement en bouche on trouve plus de fruit, myrtilles, petites baies acidulées. Le toucher est souple, avec un joli équilibre frais, d'un style un peu froid quoiqu'agréable. Je vais attendre de le regoûter demain car en général il s'arrange avec l'aeration.

A few years ago, this wine was one of the best Loire reds I have ever drunk but, on the evidence of this bottle, I have kept them (2 bottles left) too long. Colour was still quite deep red with little bricking. The nose was still attractive but the pencil shavings now dominated with less ethereal fruit than I recall. The palate seemed to have kept its structure but the fruit, flesh and underlying roundness have receded leaving a classy but rather dry and angular wine with a slightly bitter finish. I hope the remaining bottles are closer to their prime. Still quite good.

PS: THT's note is very close to what I remember from earlier bottles and increases my hopes for my remaining bottles.
