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
