St. Cosme Gigondas Hominis Fides 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

97 points Jeb Dunnuck: 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. (Oct 2017)
