Pierre Gonon, Saint-Joseph 2019

Pierre Gonon

Case Format: 6x75cl

The Pierre Gonon estate, located in Mauves in Ardèche, is a family farm of 10 hectares in AOC Saint-Joseph. The Gonon brothers represent the 4th generation and have become an essential reference in Saint-Joseph. On these difficult soils, they apply themselves to an uncompromising management of the vine: plowing with a winch, work by hand, compost, abandonment of pesticides and insecticides. The estate prefers freshness to overripe grapes, and there is very little wine available at the property… so dazzling is the aura of the Gonon estate. Organic certification was obtained in 2011.

CRITIC REVIEWS

Joe Czerwinski

Gonons 2019 Saint Joseph retains the typical floral signature on the nose, but it is more dark-fruited than usual, with notes of black cherries, blackberries and even black olives. Its medium to full-bodied, the first vintage recorded over 14% alcohol, according to Jean Gonon (14.2%). Concentrated, rich and velvety in feel, it boasts a long, gently chewy finish and should age well.

Matt Walls

Deeply aromatic with violets and Kalamata olives, its wildly resinous with a touch of black cherry. Medium- to full-bodied, its more concentrated and fresher than most Saint-Josephs this year. It has the classic depth and texture of Gonons Saint-Joseph, thick and alive, like a jungle. Very long finish with a floral lift. A big vintage here - increasingly the norm. Better freshness and lower alcohol heat than most in 2019.
