2006 Gigondas Chateau de Saint Cosme "Hominis Fides" (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1569255 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark A bigger, richer wine than the Le Poste, the 2006 Gigondas Hominis Fides offers more sandy, loamy soil notes as well as notions of cured meats, licorice, currants and hints of tapenade. Medium to full-bodied, perfectly balanced and layered, with still present tannin, it will be one of the longest lived wines in the vintage and will see its 20th birthday in fine form. (JD) Inner quote mark (3/2016)

94 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Superpacked with a massive core of fig sauce, red and black licorice, macerated plum and boysenberry fruit flavors, but it's all very racy and pure, with a chalky spine holding the finish together while fruit and black tea notes echo on. Gorgeous. Best from 2009 through 2016. Inner quote mark (11/2008)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Glass-staining ruby. Deep, brooding aromas of kirsch and licorice gain energy with air and turn toward fresher raspberry and minerals. Tangy, finely etched red and dark berry flavors are nicely framed by dusty tannins. Finishes with gentle sweetness and a strong echo of minerals. This concentrated wine is showing a serious side and needs some time to unwind. (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2009)
