Gigondas 2018 " Hominis Fides " - Chateau de St Cosme

94-96/100 Parker

The winegrower says:

"Very old mixed plantings of Grenache on Miocene limestone sand in the ‘Hominis Fides’ named vineyard.
Whole cluster fermentation.
Twelve months’ ageing: 20% in new casks – 50% in casks used for one wine -30% in casks used for two to three wines.

My father had spotted the huge potential of this site back in the early 1960s. Of course, this was not an era when  the  whys  and  wherefores  of  vineyard  sites  were  examined  in  detail,  but  the  sound  appraisal  of  a seasoned  winegrower  could  be  trusted.  Hominis  Fides  has  always  been  one  of  the  best  named  vineyard sites, irrespective of the vintage: great terroirs override vintages. When geological History with a capital H meets  the  relatively  short-term  history  of  small  human  winegrowers,  the  result  is  a  kind  of  enigmatic soul-searching: what is the meaning behind all this? Why does this soil created 11 million years ago by a sea  that  swept  inland  inspire  little  ‘worms’  like  us  on  the  long-term  scale  of  time?  Hominis  Fides  always displays  a  unique  depth,  but  in  a  vintage  like  2018,  it  is  tinged  with  finesse  and  freshness.  The  tannins always  achieve  finesse  with  disconcerting  ease.  Although  this  is  a  Grenache  vineyard,  Hominis  is  also home to a lot of Aramon, Alicante, Carignan and even grape varieties whose names I am unfamiliar with... Our  predecessors  liked  to  mix  plantings  and  add  diversity:  it  helps  flowering,  makes  the  wines  more complex and “irons out” the excesses of certain vintages.

Sometimes, before travelling far and wide looking for knowledge, trying to understand what our predecessors did and taking a closer look at what is in front of our very eyes is enough. Rose, liquorice, iodine, pepper.
