Aromatics were there but palate was very tight and sour on opening. An hour in the decanter worked wonders. A beautiful showing. It's just opening back up and shows plenty of promise. It was very clean but not squeaky clean.

This is in a great place. Stood it up for a few weeks and then double decanted a couple of hours before service. It opened a little funky, but by dinner time it was clean, showing some age with the tell tale deep griotte

Consistent with the last one. A little subdued, but lovely. I did not decant, which was likely a mistake. Still very enjoyable. These are in a good place.

This time I listened to my former self: after two to three hours in the decanter, this was singing.

Beautiful. Didn't Jean-Marie make apologies for this? No need. Yes, it is early maturing. I'm not sure how much better it will get, but I don't think it's about to fall apart. It's a wonderfully aromatic, lightweight wine. There is a definite wintergreen overtone that I don't recall in his wines but have had in others from the region, and especially in mountain Nebbioli. It's a feature, not a bug, to me. There is no herbal, tobacco quality that I can see. An awfully nice wine for $37.

Absolutely singing. Haven't looked at my own old notes, but I remember this as blocky and fiercely tannic. Wow is this showing well.

Stunning. The color was advanced, but the wine was great. Gave it more time in the decanter than I bargained for, maybe 2.5 hrs.

Lovely now with a couple of hours of air. More would probably have been better. This is understated and very complex. The wood is integrated. It showed brett when first opened, but that blew off to reveal a classic profile.

Really lovely. Early prime. There is still some vibrant fruit. I think there's room for it to open up further, but it is in a very nice place.

2006 Pierre Gonon St. Joseph

Syrah more

This was quite a ride, enjoyable at each stage but with wild changes throughout the evening. I stood it up a few days and then double decanted before heading to dinner. The dregs of the bottle were cloudy, the wine a snarling, bretty, beautiful animalistic beast. Fast forward an hour or so, the resulting decanted wine was clear and shockingly civilized, with no brett or funk. Pretty soon, it showed its stems in a big way. Then they integrated and we had a lovely if young, authentic bottle of Gonon, just what I'd hoped for. Early days but no crime, I thought.

Very nice. Probably better on day two -- after pouring off into a 375 -- but it was close. Very nice both days.

This latest bottle was correct but not as impressive as earlier versions. I kept this bottle for a few years, maybe not long enough. It was based on 2006 fruit.
