    Winemaker's Notes:

    Hominis Fides 2011 looks very much like the previous vintages - it is complex, deep and refined. With its fine texture and its strength, it proposes a very specific wine profile. This vintage shows notes of blueberry, licorice, and almonds. After keeping these bottles for several years, then you will be able to "read" the wine qualities with more pleasure and freedom.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Juicy bramble, plum skin, blackberrry coulis and cassis notes show charcoal-studded grip, with a long, muscular finish that lets the bay leaf and ganache accents stretch out. Surprisingly powerful for the vintage.

    One of the smallest cuvees, the 2011 Gigondas Hominis Fides (100% old vine Grenache from sandy soils) displays copious notes of black cherries intermixed with lavender and other floral notes as well as pepper. This concentrated red represents the essence of Grenache with great fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel and a tremendous finish.
    Range: 93-95

    The Wine Advocate

    Opaque ruby. Ripe blackberry and cherry on the intensely perfumed nose, with hints of anise and lavender adding complexity. Sappy black and blue fruit flavors show impressive depth and a supple, velvety texture. Finishes sweet and precise, with noteworthy persistence and slow-building tannins.
