2017 Pierre Gonon Saint-Joseph Rouge (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1416861 95 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A fairly straightforward year for the Gonon brothers despite fairly low yields of 28hl/ha. The 2017 is rich and generous in fruit and ripe tannins, but is so well held together and ushered into shape. It's densely coloured, with beautifully fresh herb aromas and super-fresh, pure blackberries on the tongue. It has plenty of relief and texture, with crisp acidity and a long, mineral finish. Drinking Window 2021 - 2030. (MW) Inner quote mark (10/2018)

94 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2017 Saint Joseph showed beautifully and has a slightly more elegant yet sunny profile compared to the bigger, richer 2018, revealing a deep purple color as well as sumptuous notes of black raspberries, crème de cassis, toasted spices, ground pepper, and a terrific sense of minerality. Playing in the medium to full-bodied end of the pool, with ripe, sweet tannins, and a great finish, it’s another terrific wine from this estate which is unquestionably in the top handful of domaines in Saint Joseph. You can drink bottles today or cellar for over a decade. Inner quote mark (12/2019)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark purple. Ripe, spice-accented black and blue fruits, cherry liqueur, olive and a pungent floral note on the intensely perfumed nose. Plush blackberry, bitter cherry and spicecake flavors display excellent clarity and turn sweeter with air. The smoky, extremely persistent finish shows outstanding detail, and pliant tannins fold smoothly into the sappy, lingering dark fruit.(JR) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s a dried, red-plum thread to the nose, as well as an array of wet, dark stones and plentiful pepper. Round, dense and intense with very deep, plush tannins. Very complete, soft and balanced. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (7/2018)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark Cask sample. Meaty, smoky nose with pure plummy fruit and layered, fluffy tannins. Savoury and long but with lighter, more delicate structure than Cornas or indeed most other Rhône 2017s. Opposite of severe – yet so lengthy and substantial! Excellent. (RH) 17.5+/20 Inner quote mark (11/2018)
