2017 Gonon

#1 Post by Jeremy Holmes » April 15th, 2019, 8:28 am

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.

No, but he’s pissing me off now, cause I can’t take delivery of the 2017s until Fall! Too dang hot.

Nice notes, these sound wonderful. Less powerful is not a bad thing at all, especially considering 2015 and 2016 are big wines.

Suddenly we've got a mad run on who can open the youngest Gonon. I'm so old I can remember when we used to WAIT to open Gonon St. Joseph!

I'm gonna go crack a '20

K&L posted I think a case of 2016 and 2017 in the last few days at $120. It was gone within an hour, so someone (not me) is very willing to pay that price.

I have a not-so-secret crush on N. Rhône wines from 1996. Sounds like a reason to travel to Orlando for the first annual Fu You Offline.

I have had a few very exciting wines from 96
Both from Cote Rotie and Cornas
They have been spellbinding

Wasn't everybody complaining about $79 for the St. Joseph a mere vintage or two ago?

    in the case of this source, both i suppose. point being, it's not a proper data point for real retail pricing of gonon.

    Bastard. 96 Cuvee C was probably the best Juge I ever tasted on release until 2010, and like a moron, I didn’t buy a case at what was a pittance.

    i bought Gonon at these prices- all sold out at this retailer.
    2017 Saint-Joseph $44.99
    2017 Iles Feray $29.99
    I bought from them last year, but I guess this year the wine sold out before it hit their website. Now I have to hope I can source the wine when it hits the Northern California Market. I can't believe people pay $100-$130 a bottle. At that price you can buy the 2015,2016 and 2017 right now.

    I used to buy the Saint-Joseph all the time but at current prices, I prefer others in that price range. If I had to recommend one domaine it would be Monier-Perreol.

    I will still pay $100 per bottle for any Gonon St Joe on offer. So far only one berserker has accepted my offer, but if you have some and you are ready to sell let me know!
