    Winemaker's Notes:

    This wine contains aromas and flavors of cherries, peat, forest aromas and coal. Right now we can appreciate this wine in its youth with its distinctive Burgundy character and its great balance, but we know the truth about how the aromas and flavors will develop even more in ten years time.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This rich red displays lovely detail, as chestnut, tobacco and sage notes are inlaid in the core of dark plum, braised fig and macerated blackberry fruit. The long, smoldering finish has superb acidity, with mouthwatering mesquite and licorice snap notes that really stretch it out. Drink now through 2022. 575 cases made.

    Bright ruby-red. Raspberry, blackberry and Asian spices on the exotically perfumed nose. Sappy, palate-staining red fruit flavors show superb depth and a building spice character. A lively jolt of minerality adds lift to the finish, which features notes of bitter herbs and red berry liqueur. This wine unfurls slowly and should be stashed away to age for at least another five years.

    International Wine Cellar

    From yellow clay and Jurassic limestone, the 2009 Gigondas Le Claux is aged in the same manner as the Hominis Fides. This deep ruby/purple-tinged 2009 possesses excellent concentration, but its astringency and elevated tannins may present a problem with the wine’s equilibrium in 4-5 years. I will have a better view of this wine once it is in bottle.
