those who believe CO2 in the bottle protective against oxidation and allowing lower sulfur levels have missed the science lessons of Don Cornwell. In short, it’s totally wrong.
Doesn't Jean-Marie Fourrier do just this? Not saying it is right, but he is of the belief it is.

Clos St Jacques Tasting 2009 and 2010 (Long)

From what I've read and tasted of Fourrier I would have said he prepares his wines the opposite to the oxydative style you seem to pick up. There is plenty of dissolved CO2 contained within to suppress this. Bad bottle?
