The 2017 Saint-Joseph is another faboulus release from Gonon. This instantly begins to impress as striking aromas of fresh blackberries and wild red berries come together with lavendar violets, black olives, graphtite, pepper, smoke and savory herbs. On the palate this is full-bodied, and and beautifully polished with a concentrated core of fresh dark berries laced with pepper and spice flavors. On the palate this displays remarkable balance and with a lovely combination of bright acidity and wonderful minerality as it continues to show remarkbake freshness and purity all the way through the gorgoeus finish. Today this simply stunnning, as it displays incredible energy and verve, however Gonon's wines have a proven track record for their ability to age, and the 2017 should be no exception.
