Domaine Vincent Paris Cornas Granit 60 2018
Region: Cornas, Northern Rhone
Young Rhône winemaker Vincent Paris cultivates vines at the southern edge of the village of Cornas. He began making wine in 1997 when his grandfather left him his first hectare. Ten years later he bought an excellent plot, La Geynale, from Robert Michel. Today he cultivates more than six hectares, including five in the Cornas appellation. The steep terraces where his vines are planted are the inspiration for the names of his cuvées Granit 30 and Granit 60. Vincent takes as sustainable and natural an approach as possible and his Cornas wines receive frequent praise from the critics.
Granite 60 owes its name to the granite soils and steep slope (60°) of the parcels from which it derives and its 60 year-old Syrah vines.
Very ripe, pure, concentrated, iron, with a terrific mineral underpinning.
