Despite coming from sandy soils, the 2012 Gigondas Hominis Fides has a masculine, structured and almost burly profile. Underbrush, black raspberry, crushed rock, pepper and black licorice are just some of the notions here, and it hits the palate with full-bodied authority and richness. I expect it will flesh out nicely once in bottle, but it should still warrant 2-3 years in the cellar and have the capacity to keep for 20 years.

Range: 93-96 Points"


The famous limestony sands left by the Miocane sea are marvelous and enigmatic at the same time. They can be found in small quantites in Gigondas, at Chateau Rayas in Chateauneuf, in the Massif d'Uchaux, at Chateau de Montfaucon just on the other side of the Rhone river. They give to the grenache grape a very special expression, very refined and precise. The lieu-dit Hominis Fides was planted before 1902. It doesn't change much: it is a respectable age anyway. This vine has the ability to compensate the excesses of the vintages: it beautifully regulates itself. In a hot year, it will balance the alcohol with a very good physiological ripening. In a cool year, it will ripe quicker than the other vines.
