"Barruol's 2016 Gigondas Hominis Fides is tremendously concentrated and intense, boasting nearly overwhelming waves of black cherry fruit. Full-bodied, creamy and rich, it's approachable now for it's lush, velvety fruit, but if you want more nuance and spice, try to hold it for 5-10 years. It should drink well through at least 2030."

"Rich and velvety but undeniably tannic, the 2016 Gigondas Hominis Fides is another stunning wine from proprietor Louis Barruol. Stone fruit, cherries and chocolate notes all mingle easily on the full-bodied palate, ending in a supple flurry of tannins."
