* Please note that because there is limited stock of this wine it is not subject to any further discount.
Harvested on Sep 12th, it was aged for a year in 228ltr barrels and then assembled in a stainless steel vat for a further three months before bottling in December. Rich, ageworthy St Joseph Blanc that reminds us of Top white Hermitage.
Notes on the producer
Pierre Gonon was a mainstay at Mauves for many years, making quietly understated wines. He was joined by his two sons Jean in 1986 and Pierre in 1988, with the brothers sharing most tasks. Their father had to retire early due to ill health in 1989, and since then the brothers have worked with a passion to raise this domaine to the point where it is now generally considered as the leading domaine in Saint-Joseph.The brothers initially made wines from two cramped cellars, but in 2002 they finished construction of a new winemaking cave, still linked to one of the two ancient, atmospheric cellars. The domaine's vines are planted in the original heart of the Saint-Joseph appellation, the granitic terraced hillsides of Mauves and Tournon.
