Editorial Reviews for Gonon Pierre & Jean Saint-Joseph Pre Arrival
This was fairly complex on the nose with notes of roasted coffee bean, rose petals, a hint of orange oil and some hazelnut elements, over soft notes of green olive and black pepper beef. Balanced if a touch soft in the mouth, this is rambunctiously tannic at this young age but there seems to be enough stuffing to absorb the structure. There’s a lot to like here as the structure and fruit meld in the mouth giving this wine a rather sexy feel, but the tannins do plead for more time. Gonon’s wines blossom with age, so 4-10 years in the cellar should be in order here. 89pts
