Gigondas Hominis Fides St. Cosme 2015 (750ML)
97 Points, Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "That the 2015 Gigondas Hominis Fides is a great wine is undeniable; the question merely becomes, How great is it? Flowering garrigue and licorice notes start things off, followed by raspberries and dried spices, phenomenal concentration and length. It might show a touch of warmth on the finish, but by then I was writing in my notes "Who cares?" followed by joy-filled expletives." 10/17
97 Points, Wine Spectator: "This has a packed core of red and black currant preserves and crushed plum fruit, inlaid liberally with lavender, juniper, bay leaf and tobacco notes. Lots of grippy bittersweet cocoa and licorice root accents score the finish, which is seriously long. A brick house. Best from 2020 through 2040. 215 cases made." 11/17
97 Points, Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com: "The 2015 Gigondas Hominis Fides is another gorgeous wine. This cuvee comes from the lieu-dit of the same name which is located just down from the estate, just across the road from the le Claux vineyard. The soils here are sandier and more limestone-based, and the cuvee is from very old vine Grenache that was fermented with 100% whole clusters in oak tanks and aged in 20% new barrels. It offers gorgeous black raspberry and cassis fruits intermixed with notions of ground pepper, crushed flowers, graphite and loads of sandy/loamy/dried soils nuances. With full-bodied richness, gorgeous tannin quality and a texture that just glides over the palate, it's going to benefit from 2-4 years of cellaring and keep for two decades. There's just 100 cases produced." 10/17
