If Cornas was off the beaten path, St. Joseph might as well have been Atlantis up until recently. The family of Jean & Pierre Gonon have been quietly producing benchmark Syrahs from this unheralded appellation for decades. While it may lack the glamour of Hermitage or Côte-Rôtie, the traditional wine making methods used Chez Gonon have resulted in beautifully pure wine that is bright with sappy red fruits, classic smoky herb and meat notes, and a lively snap on the palate. Almost willowy in the world of Syrah, Gonon shines as a beacon of elegance and aromatics.
