The richest and most textured of the 2011s, the 2011 Gigondas Hominis Fides comes all from sandy soils located just down from the domaine. Black raspberry, forest floor, exotic spices, crushed flowers and dusty minerality all flow from this gorgeously put together Gigondas. Showing the silkiness and elegance that’s imparted from sandy soils, it has fantastic concentration, polished tannin and rock star length. Certainly, one of the greatest wines in the vintage (and I’ll include the entire southern Rhone in that comparison), it will continue to evolve for 3-4 years and hold for 10-15 years after that.
