The Cult Of Gonon: 2020 Gonon Saint Joseph

Posted by Ian McFadden

The amount of gracefulness that Gonon is able to coax from the hills of Saint-Joseph is extraordinary.

It's no wonder that the wines have become among the region's most sought-after bottles.

On paper, Saint-Joseph may come in behind Hermitage, Côte-Rôtie, and Cornas in terms of prestigious northern Rhône appellations. However, that would never occur to you when tasting Gonon's Saint-Joseph.

Gonon’s signatures are a pure and clear profile with an intricate and detailed presentation of blackberries, olives, violets, spice, and forest floor notes wrapped around a smoke-infused minerality. This is authentic northern Rhône, rendered with the utmost care.

The 2020 Saint-Joseph is layered with a depth of complexity while maintaining a shocking amount of finesse. The combination really drives home Pierre and Jean Gonon's masterful abilities with Syrah.

It's always a pleasure to have another offer of Gonon's Saint-Joseph. Pierre and Jean Gonon make some of the most compelling wines coming out of the northern Rhône.
