Pierre Gonon St. Joseph les Oliviers 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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

Pierre Morey:
The total area of the domaine is 11 hectares, distributed in different parcels located in the districts of Monthelie, Pommard, Puligny-Montrachet, and, of course Meursault. All the vineyards were cultivated following organic agricultural practices from 1992 to 1997, at the end of this period the domaine became 100% biodynamic.
