The 2019 Gigondas Hominis Fides is cut from the same cloth and has power, purity, and elegance. Ground herbs, Provençal spice, black raspberries, blackberries, and assorted peppery notes give way to a full-bodied, concentrated Gigondas with a great mid-palate, perfect balance, and a great finish. It has some charm today, but smart money will hide bottles for a few years. - Jeb Dunnuck

Deep, brilliant magenta. Powerful, spice-accented aromas of ripe dark berries, cherry-cola, lavender, pungent herbs and licorice are energized by a smoky mineral top note. Densely packed and concentrated, offering intense, alluringly sweet blueberry, cherry liqueur and floral pastille flavors that show superb detail and mineral cut. Finishes with resonating florality, youthfully gripping tannins and outstanding, mineral-driven tenacity. All whole clusters and one-third new oak. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media

A seriously upright and skybound style, so much energy and very long. It's a seriously tannic wine this year, but elegant with it - and such freshness. A little spicy note in the background accentuates its natural freshness and pep. Grenache planted in 1902 on Miocene calcareous sand. Single vineyard. No destemming. 12 months maturation in French oak barriques: 30% new, 30% one-year-old, 30% two-year-old. Unfiltered. - Matt Walls, Decanter

Editor's Choice. Layers of crème de cassis and fig preserve are dusted with licorice, camphor and smoke in this powerful yet softly textured wine. A varietal Grenache sourced from old vines on limestone sand and fermented in whole clusters, it's a weighty, concentrated sip balanced by a spine of mineral freshness. A bit closed in youth, the wine will benefit from a few years of cellaring and should improve through 2035. - Anna Lee C Iijima, Wine Enthusiast

A brick house, this brims with cassis, blackberry reduction and fig preserve flavors supported by a strong spine of cast iron notes and laced throughout with bay, dried garrigue and racy chalky minerality. Muscular and rugged in temperament through the finish, but the well-defined pieces are in. Some patience is all that's needed. Best from 2024 through 2040. 200 cases made, 39 cases imported. —JM, Wine Spectator
