Soulfulness and Delicacy in Saint-Joseph: 2014 Gonon Saint-Joseph

Posted by Ian McFadden

What the Gonon brothers achieve on the steep granite slopes of Saint-Joseph is amazing.

Appropriately, the wines have attracted a cult following. Finding authentic Northern Rhône Syrah at affordable prices is a rare thing.

I should warn you from the outset that this will likely sell out. This offer is only going out to people who've supported the Northern Rhône. Still, as Gonon's popularity has surged, finding the wines in any quantity has become very challenging.

Gonon's are some of our favorite wines coming out of the Northern Rhône. They assume the classical proportions of the Northern Rhône at its best. They are pure and clear with an intricate and detailed presentation of blackberries, olives, violets, spice and forest floor notes wrapped around a smoke-infused minerality.

2014 is a really lovely vintage for Gonon's Saint-Joseph. There's plenty of finesse and clarity to complement the layered complexity and suave texture. The whole package is extraordinarily appealing.

Pierre and Jean Gonon make some of the most compelling wines coming out of the Northern Rhône. It's always a pleasure to offer.
