The Wine Advocate
The 2018 Gigondas Hominis Fides is another huge success for the team at Saint Cosme, boasting complex aromas of roses, dusty earth, cigar box, asphalt and dark fruit. The plums and black cherries expand on the full-bodied palate, sweeping across in supple waves of flavor without ever becoming overbearing, buoyed by notes of cracked pepper and anise, then finishing in silky pools of lingering flavor.
From one of Gigondas's top producers, I guess it should be no surprise that this year's lineup is flat-out terrific. The single-parcel wines from 2018 are among the best I've tasted here, managing to combine remarkable intensity with seductive, approachable textures. These are wines that are delicious now, yet appear capable of drinking well for more than a decade. And don't overlook the Côtes du Rhône offerings from proprietor Louis Barruol, which continue to offer outstanding value.
