Wine AdvocateTasted assembled and awaiting bottling, the Agly Brothers 2009 Cotes du Roussillon smells of peat and black fruits, but with a detached aura of toasted oak in the guise of lanolin, coconut, and caramel, which accompany cooked boysenberry and cassis on a rather obviously tannin-starched palate. A low-toned finish lingers impressively, though without much brightness. In the context of an illustrious series, the present installment is a bit disappointing. While it ought to serve well over the next several years, I would not be tempted to try to attempt waiting-out the resolution of the tannins.
