The 2004 had a great development in the bottle, more developed than the 2005 by far. The 2004 went from elegant floral, roses with tanned leather, to a more amarone-like dried plums and fruits, and ended up after an hour as an intense chocolate, raspberry caramel, still with the dried roses and mint on top. The elegant lightness stayed throughout. Sweet liquorish flavor came toward the end. I have always been fascinated with a wine that will develop so much in the glass, and surprise me at every sip. Most importantly, what made me want to meet this winemaker apart from the elegance of his wines, was that sniffing and drinking it did what very very few wines do. Instead of immediately dividing itself into scents, it gave me a feeling, an image. I somehow imagine that the wines that do this are the ones where the vine and the winemaker have managed to leave an impression of themselves, maybe a bit of soul, or of their feelings, in the wine for me to discover. It makes me fluttery or giddy or dreamy. Hard to describe in tasting notes, but it was a wine like that which made me decide to dive into a profession where I could spend my days with wine. I have been chasing it ever since. So of course, when it happens, I like to know more about the wine and the person behind it.
