Pierre Gonon

Here is perhaps the most emblematic domain of Saint Joseph AOC, and one of the best value of the region, to be compared with some Cote Rotie ! Pierre and Jean Gonon work the family's 9 hectares of vineyards located in Mauves, Tournon and Saint-Jean-de-Muzols. The massale selection vines average 30 years of age and are densely planted. The soil is fertilized only with their own composts and is plowed and aerated. Only natural treatments are used in the vineyard, including copper, sulfur, and plant extracts. Yields are kept very low by short pruning - 30 hl/ha for the reds and 38 hl/ha for the whites in 2004 and 2005. The grapes are harvested by hand and fermentation is with only the indigenous yeasts. The wines age in large barrels ("foudres et demi-muids") and are bottled without filtration. Their organic work in the vineyard and great natural winemaking are inspirational and delicious !
