We just received the new release of the very popular 2022 Gonnet Cotes du Rhone Le Reveur. Hi-Time's buyers recently tasted this and were struck by the concentration, purity and depth of this delicious wine. It was unanimously selected as our Wine of the Month for June. We have previously featured Gonnet's Cairanne as our Wine of the Month and this is every bit as delicious!

This is truly a bountiful time for wines from the Southern Rhone. With a string of outstanding vintages and fantastic pricing, times have never been better to enjoy these delicious wines. This 2022 Rhone blend crafted by Guillaume Gonnet is a perfect case in point. The quality of the fruit and the depth of flavor really stood out when we tasted this at the store.

This is ripe and focused, with a core of dark plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit. This is a crowd pleasing, full-bodied wine that completely over-delivers with stunning black and blue fruits underpinned by a freshness that makes it so drinkable. The quality to price ratio is off the charts and this drinks like a wine which costs 2-3 times its $9.95 price tag.

Gonnet's 2022 Cotes du Rhone Le Reveur is an 80-20 blend of Grenache and Syrah sourced a short distance from the banks of the Rhône River. The climate here is Mediterranean with hot, dry summers bringing excellent ripening to the grapes used in this blend.

The Gonnet family has been in the Rhone since at least 1600. Etienne Gonnet and Jeanne Brunier married and created Font de Michelle in 1950. Today the domaine is being managed by the grandchild of Etienne, Guillaume Gonnet. Before joining his family as 3rd generation winemaker, Guillaume travelled the world working in some of the most famous wineries in Bordeaux, Burgundy, Napa Valley, New Zealand and finally in Australia where he met his wife, Kelly.

Guillaume and Kelly have purchased several plots in Chateauneuf du Pape and the surrounding communes. These, along with vines inherited from Guillaume's family are farmed following biodynamic agricultural principles. The beautiful bird on the label embodies their passion for the terroir and their respect for the health of the vineyards. The wines are well-balanced with supple, approachable tannins and very little wood influence.

This is a great example of what can be accomplished by thoughtful winemakers during an outstanding vintage. This crowd-pleasing wine is a remarkable value that should not be missed.

On the nose, wild flowers and notes of dark plum, red and black cherries and blackberry fruits are augmented by baking spice and garrigue. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied with juicy black and blue fruits underpinned by a freshness that makes it so drinkable. The finish is silky textured long lasting.
