Winemaker Notes

Hominis Fides always proposes a paradox: is it a masculine or a feminine wine? The debate is open. There is some depth with finesse, there is some power with fruit, there is some ripeness with freshness, it is secret but generous: being a paradox is the main characteristic of this soil. 2010 proposes a very interesting version of Hominis Fides, with very obvious fruit and freshness. This has notes of blueberry, rose and almonds.

It will go well with lamb... for now.

RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A candidate for perfection is the 2010 Gigondas Hominis Fides. This is 100% Grenache from sandy and limestone soils that, like the other single-vineyard cuvees, is aged in small barrels (30% new, 40% one-year and 30% two to three years old). Inky purple, with an exquisite nose of spring flowers intermixed with smoky barbecue notes, creme de cassis, blackberry liqueur, and kirsch, the incredible floral fireworks continue in the mouth of this full-bodied, deep wine that overloads the olfactory senses as well as the tastebuds. This deep, striking, exhilarating wine is one of the greatest Gigondas I have ever tasted. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the following two decades.
Range: 96-100
WS 97
Wine Spectator
Dense and packed, with bittersweet chocolate and espresso notes leading the way for a huge core of blueberry, blackberry and black currant fruit, all melded together and pumping through the graphite-filled finish. The fruit is almost ostentatious now, but the grip is there, buried on the finish, and this will easily cruise for some time in the cellar. Best from 2015 through 2032.

Louis Barruol is the 14th generation Barruol to make wine at Saint Cosme. The Chateau was built in the late 16th Century on the site of a former Roman villa, and the remains of a Roman wine cellar, carved into the stone of the hillside, still exist in the chateau's caves. There are 37 acres of vineyards and the vines average 60 years of age. The old plots (pictured on the Gigondas label) and stitch across the escarpment of the ragged Dentelles de Montmirail, an oft-painted mountain range.
