Tasted assembled from tank after recent racking the 2009 Cotes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France v.i.t (the initials standing for "visitare interiore terrae") smells of fennel rosemary juniper and abundant black fruits. Palate-saturating and caressing it boasts abundant though fine tannins and a seamless ripeness free of any superficial sweetness. While this lacks the vibrancy or complexity of the corresponding 2008 or its evocative length let's see what happens once it has settled down from racking and then had time to rest in bottle. It should be a candidate for at least a decade's aging. 91-92+ -David Schildknecht

A blend of Grenache Syrah and old vine Carignan that's aged all in vat the 2009 M. Chapoutier Côtes du Roussillon Villages Les Vignes de Bila-Haut is a value displaying deep complex aromas of kirsch and licorice infused darker fruits spice touches of leather and solid background minerality. Fleshing out in the glass the wine is medium+ bodied with a smooth overall elegant profile loads of ripe fruit and a relatively tannic finish. This could actually turn out better than the '07 in a year or two. It should drink well for 5-8 years.
