Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph “les Oliviers” Blanc 2018

"The 2018 Saint Joseph les Oliviers Blanc is approximately 80% Marsanne and 20% Roussanne, all barrel fermented and aged almost entirely in used oak (there is one new demi-muid in the mix for the 2018). It's impressively rich and honeyed, with sweet, fruity notes of grilled pineapple balanced by hints of white pepper and brighter citrus notes. Full-bodied, creamy and lush, it remains lively and fresh on the finish—a wonderful paradox that the Gonons seem able to bring out in all of their wines." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph 2018

"Gonon's 2018 Saint Joseph is a tremendous effort that, according to Jean Gonon, was blended in March 2019 but won't be bottled until February 2020. Picked the second week of September, it weighs in at a balanced 13.7% alcohol, artfully combining aromatic nuances of black cherries, black tea, rose petals and licorice. It's medium to full-bodied, with ripe fleshiness surrounding a concealed spine of firm but ripe tannins—a structure to make it enjoyable relatively young yet capable of aging through 2035." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Pierre Gonon VdP de l’Ardeche “Les Iles Feray” 2018

"The 2018 VdP de l'Ardeche Les Iles Feray Syrah comes mostly from the base of the slopes that form Saint-Joseph, but it also includes some young vines from within that appellation's boundaries. Yields are a bit higher, and a portion was destemmed. It's still remarkable, featuring mixed berries and olives in a medium to full-bodied swirl of mind-bending complexity that just misses the extra intensity, structure and length of the Saint Josephs at this address." - Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
