“Another killer wine from this team, the 2016 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Latour de France Visitare Interiore Terrae ( V I T ) is 60% Grenache and 40% Syrah (aged in equal parts concrete and demi-muids); it comes from limestone and Gneiss soils around the village of Latour de France. Its inky purple color is followed by a huge wine that offers notes of sweet red and black fruits (black raspberries, blackberries), licorice, toasted spices and crushed flowers. It’s straight up massive, but stays incredibly light, graceful and balanced, with sweet tannin. I suspect this will be the best vintage to date for this cuvee.” #230, The Wine Advocate

Reviews

  • Joseph Newman

    I like this Reserva from RdD. 100% Tempranillo aged for 24 months in oak barrels.

    3.8 stars with more aging potential.

    A deep ruby red and purple shades. Thick long legs in the glass.

    On the nose medium intense aromas of blackberries, black cherries, black raspberries, horse saddle, leather and slightly oak.

  • Soham Phillips

    This amazing powerhouse from Ribera del Duero. Tinto Pesquera Reserva 2012 - Bodegas Alejandro Fernández. Decanting is advised 👌🍷 delicious cherry, vanilla, leather and cederbox with cigars. Milk chocolat, forrest floor, laurel. Great lenght and depth Amazing wine!

  • Gregor Jagermeister

    90 pts Given the quality of the Crianza I really was delighted to find this Reserva, needs way more time to fully flower however, still very enjoyable for me now. The Crianza is ready now, but this shows sleeping intensity and great future potential and longevity, wait a few years however.

    Typical earthy red fruit with good use of oak, dusty vanilla. Weighty, full with a long finish, it will be a star in the future.
