Notes from Kermit Lynch Wine Merchant:

"Pierre Gonon farmed some of the best slopes of Mauves, in the very heart—and the historical birthplace—of the Saint-Joseph appellation. In 1988, he turned direction of the property over to his sons, Jean and Pierre. This friendly, talented team of brothers has since earned a reputation as the domaine of Saint-Joseph."

All of Gonon's vines are grown organically, and replanted by the selection massale process. Low yields, hand harvest and native yeast fermentation are hallmarks of their production.

About the cuvee:

"Les Iles de Foray" is produced from younger vines from hillside vineyards, as well as grown on lower lying footslopes. The grapes are mostly destemmed prior to fermentation, and elevage lasts 10 months in neutral demi-muids.
