2021 Domaine Pierre Gonon "Les Oliviers" St-Joseph Blanc (Previously $110)

SKU #1703669 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This amazing white St.-Joseph literally smells like crushed rock! Then comes a texturally complex full-bodied palate that’s richer and creamier than the nose suggests, then, it turns back in the radical stony direction, growing in power as it does. Just doesn’t want to stop! From a clay rich soil. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (5/2023)

93 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A lovely light and floral style on the nose, and on the palate it’s only medium-bodied this year, not as rich as a typical vintage, and much higher in acidity. Vibrant and zesty. Fermented in fûts and old barriques, this spends a year on the lees. (MW) Inner quote mark (9/2022)

K&L Notes

John Livingstone-Learmonth for Cradle of the Rhône: "(tank, bottling 15 Dec 2022) shiny, inviting yellow robe, the bouquet is alert on the outside, ripe on the inside with a peach, flan, apricot aroma, variety to come. The palate holds stylish gras, sustains and holds well, gives a good line of spearmint late on, is a good mix of gras richness and freshness, a return to the 1980s, has great clarity, an effortless tone, with very joli silk, is floral and delicate. There’s a discreet nutty tone on the close." (10/2022)
