2017 Gonon

Perhaps not the power and depth of ’15 and ’16, but both beautiful, highly aromatic wines.

2017 Pierre Gonon Vin de Pays de l'Ardèche Les Iles Feray: Smells of menthol, red berry, rose petals and earth. It is elegant in the mouth, with ripe berry fruits and some dried herb action. It is only mid-weight but perfectly balanced and finishing with crisp acid crunch. Day two and the delicious core of raspberries became more prominent.

2017 Pierre Gonon St. Joseph: Relatively tight, showing but a whiff of menthol, some dried flowers and blackberry. It is compact, well-proportioned and highly perfumed. Length is very good and balance impeccable.
