A Bottle Of Bubbly - 2004 Rubis De Noirs, Leclerc Briant

I opened this as an aperitif over Easter. The whole bottle didn´t get emptied so I toyed with it for a couple of days, and it stayed the same for those three-four days.
Info here.

2004 Rubis de Noirs, Leclerc Briant
This 100% Pinot Noir 1er Cru has a elegant, rather withdrawn nose with notes of ripening raspberries, lingonberries, blood grape and crushed rocks. A touch anemic but good all the same.
The taste is tight and restrained with notes of rhubarb, barely ripe raspberries, earth and red beet juice. The finish is medium long and shows a fine acidity. Nothing wrong with it, but neither something to get excited over.
