$119.00 per Bottle

"Limpid yellow. Intensely perfumed aromas of pear nectar, melon, candied fig and chamomile take on hints of chalky minerals and orange zest with air. Smooth, concentrated and expansive in the mouth, offering mineral-tinged orchard and pit fruit flavors that show excellent depth and a refreshingly bitter touch of quinine. Finishes extremely long and seamless, displaying impressive clarity and building spiciness. I wouldn't hesitate to put this wine up against a number of big-name white Hermitages."

"Honeyed, rich and broad, Gonon’s 2015 Saint Joseph les Oliviers Blanc, from a hot, concentrated vintage that didn’t favor white wines, is still admirable. Full-bodied, it offers notes of tangerine, then finishes long and briny, with a hint of what Gonon calls mint or fennel." Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #234
