Walls: Tasting five vintages of Domaine Gonon St-Joseph

Matt Walls assesses the drinkability of four older vintages of one of the greatest estates in St-Joseph, Domaine Gonon, comparing them to the more recent 2018 vintage for wider context.

As a wine critic, witnessing a relatively unknown estate rise up and receive the recognition it deserves can be a bittersweet feeling.

From a purely selfish point of view, you watch the prices rise inexorably so you can no longer afford to drink wines from that estate as often as you once did. But primarily you’re delighted for the owners and for those who have discovered their wines.
