Really enjoyed from one of Quebec top producer
Good balance, not too sweet — 12 days ago
The 2016 Saint-Joseph from Pierre Gonon is utterly brilliant. This dazzling wine instantly bursts open with vivid aromas of fresh blackberries and red berries along with violets, salted meat, black olives, pepper, smoke and dried savory herbs. On the palate this is full-bodied, backed by beautiful polished tannins that surround a juicy core of fresh dark berries laced with pepper and spice flavors. On the palate this displays remarkable balance and concentration as well as striking freshness and purity all the way through the long expansive finish. Showing incredible youthful energy and vibrancy, this also displays serious aging potential. — 12 days ago

Strawberry bomb with subtle green twig notes. Sweet strawberry follows through on the front of the palate, with some grapefruit and licorice on the backend. Also quite a rich mouthfeel. Really enjoyable rose. — 19 days ago

One of my favourite young producers in Beaujolais. First tasted at AT in Paris and I scrambled to call my importer friend to work with Pierre. So glad I did - now it's ever simpler to get bottles 😜
Fine detailed, fresh, complex. Bright blackberry and red cherry fruit, set against a backdrop of meat and spice. There's a really elegant granitic element here. It's so good, but the single vineyard Les Grilles just a step up in depth and concentration. — 16 days ago

Mon amour ❤️ More powerful than the Cote de Brouilly, deeper and certainly more structure. This falls perfectly in the category of "power without weight".
Fruit profile's similar to the Cote de Brouilly - a mix of red and black fruits, with a little more weight and richness. A step up in spiciness and savouriness. Clear licorice, pepper, rhubarb, and beetroot notes. Some floral elements thrown in the mix. There's a super energetic acidity and stoniness. Long, smoky finish. Could drink a lot of this now, but cellaring would benefit it heaps.
From 60 years-old vines. Warmer site than the Cote de Brouilly. Organic, vinification semi-carbonic in concrete tanks without sulfur. Corne Verte - a blend of yellow and pink granite, clay, and diorite found only in Odenas. Elevage for 11 months in used foudres and barrels. Annual production of 3,000 bottles. — 16 days ago
