Reviews 94 points Wine Advocate "Gonon's 2019 Saint Joseph retains the typical floral signature on the nose, but it is more dark-fruited than usual, with notes of black cherries, blackberries and even black olives. It's medium to full-bodied, the first vintage recorded over 14% alcohol, according to Jean Gonon (14.2%). Concentrated, rich and velvety in feel, it boasts a long, gently chewy finish and should age well. (JC)" 18 points Jancis Robinson "What an expressive nose! Brooding spice, black-olive and meaty undertones with an earthy tequila-type note. A snappy and focused palate with great density and intensity of fruit. Then black pepper and clove spice blends with ripe blackberry – saline and fresh. The fine tannins tickle the juicy, succulent and vibrant palate – supremely tasty and pleasurable. (AC)"
