Do you agree/disagree?:
- Wines have four stages as they age much like a vine, but in reverse.
The first stage is =93fruit,=94 where the wine is exuberant and full of
fruit flavor. Then comes =93flower,=94 where the wine becomes more elegant
and floral. Next is the =93plant=94 phase, when the wine starts to take on
the characteristic flavors of the vine itself, a more vegetal phase.
The final stage is the =93earth=94 stage or =93mineraux,=94 as he says. It
becomes the earth from which it came (just like us).
