Tasting Notes

    Robert Parker, October 2012,
    Score: 100

    Pure perfection, the 2010 Gigondas Hominis Fides (200 cases produced) boasts over-the-top richness, an extraordinary, room-filling bouquet of red, black and blue fruits intermixed with charcoal, subtle new oak, forest floor and spice box. With fabulous richness, a massive mouthfeel and a delicacy and subtlety that belie its heft, weight, richness, precision and delineated character, this remarkable Gigondas may be the finest wine I have ever tasted from this appellation. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades. Drink 2014-2034

Region

Gigondas

An area for red and rosé wines Gigondas has been an appellation in its own right since 1971. Though they can occasionally be more rustic, the reds are often considered a miniature version of Châteauneuf du Pape. Part of this may have to do with the same limited yield restrictions and minimum alcoholic strength (12.5 %), but they also share some of the same varieties including Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Certain bottlings can be approached shortly after release, but many benefit from several years of cellaring. Like Châteauneuf du Pâpe, aged bottles of Gigondas take on appealing gamey and forest floor aromatics which make them particularly enjoyable with roast meats.
