The 'Hominis Fides' vineyard is known to make some of Chateau de Saint Cosme's deepest, most powerful wines defined by layers of texture and silky, refined tannins.2014 was a cooler vintage that was harvested later than usual and is held to high acclaim by critics and wine lovers alike. This is a leaner expression than is usual for the vineyard and has been described as 'Burgundy-like' thanks to its elegant tannins and higher acidity.

Offering more sandy, loamy and dried earth characteristics intermixed with lots of dried cherries, black raspberries and smoked herbs, the 2014 Gigondas Hominis Fides has a Burgundy-like feel on the palate with medium-bodied richness, fine, elegant tannin, moderate concentration and a great finish. It has higher acidity than the other two single vineyards, is pretty and relatively forward, yet certainly has the balance and purity to evolve nicely for a decade.

Deep ruby. Oak-inflected cherry and blackberry on the deeply perfumed, smoke-tinged nose. Broad and chewy on the palate, offering gently sweet dark fruit, vanilla and licorice flavours and a suave touch of candied flowers. Dusty tannins add grip to the youthfully tannic finish, which lingers with strong persistence.
