Wine Expert Note:

This wine is a remarkable expression of the Saint-Joseph appellation. Domaine Pierre Gonon is known for producing exceptional wines, and Les Oliviers is no exception. On the nose, this wine offers a complex bouquet of dark fruits, such as blackberries and plums, accompanied by hints of black pepper and earthy undertones. The aromas are intense and inviting, promising a rich and satisfying experience. The palate is equally impressive, with a full-bodied and velvety texture that coats the mouth. The flavors of ripe black fruits continue to dominate, complemented by notes of licorice, tobacco, and a touch of smokiness. The tannins are well-integrated, providing structure and balance to the wine. The finish is long and lingering, leaving a lasting impression of dark fruit flavors and a subtle spiciness. This wine has great aging potential and will continue to evolve and develop over the years. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness
info
The alcohol level in wine is a measure of the amount of alcohol present in the beverage. The degree of heat or ‘burn’ at the back of the throat is roughly proportional to the amount of alcohol consumed. It ranges from Very Low to Very High.
Alcohol
info

Intensity
info
Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

The wine is made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes grown in vinyards across the region.

The wine is made in traditional style with temperature controlled fermentation in neutral vessels to preserve the purity of its fruit expression, followed by aging in old oak barrels for more than a year to develop a broader, textural, mouthfeel. This wine's acidity makes it a food friendly style for lighter dishes involving white meats and seafood.
