The 2012 Gigondas Hominis Fides has fleshed out beautifully since I tasted it from barrel last year. Much more finesse-oriented and elegant now, it boasts stunning crushed rock, dried underbrush, blackberry liqueur, pepper and creosote-like aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, layered and seamless, with ultra-fine tannin, enjoy this rock star effort over the coming 10-15 years. Drink through 2029. (JD)
Offers a dense core of black currant, fig and blackberry paste flavors, showing terrific cut and definition. A bright chalky minerality runs underneath, with pepper, charcoal and bay leaf notes on the sleek finish. Best from 2015 through 2028. 24 cases imported. (JM)
Deep ruby. Blackberry and cassis on the highly perfumed nose, with smoky licorice, floral and spicecake overtones. Juicy dark berry preserve flavors are brightened by acidity, with a sweet lavender pastille note gaining strength in the glass. Balanced and energetic Gigondas with superb finishing clarity and length.
Vivid ruby. Intense cherry and red berry aromas pick up notes of woodsmoke, anise and lavender with air. Spicy, concentrated and sharply focused on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and floral pastille flavors underscored by juicy acidity. Closes sweet and very long, with supple tannins building slowly and folding into the wine's intensely juicy fruit. (JR)
Treacle toffee nose. Racy and with real life. Fully ripe yet with lots of energy and drive. Fine, if at this stage lightly drying, tannins. Well done. 17/20 points. Drink 2016-2024.
