Vincent Paris has rapidly ascended to become one of the stars of the tiny Cornas appellation. Blessed with a collection of small parcel, old vine vineyards (some nearly 100 years of age) which he inherited from his grandfather, Vincent has turned out some of the most exciting wines in the region in the past decade. The praise for Paris’ wines is almost universal, drawing consistently top marks from the Wine Advocate, Wine Spectator and Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar. His wines...

From the lieux-dits of Patou, Mazard and Sauman, on granite soils. 70% destemmed and aged for 16 months in old barriques. This is denser, darker and deeper than his Granit 30, with a fruitier and more vinous expression - blackberry and plum sauce. It is fairly full-bodied but not massive, with rounded, pure and juicy fruits accompanied by ample saline tannins and zippy, citrus acidity. Buzzy, lively and very pure, this well balanced wine has great detail and definition and a very long mineral finish.See detailed press review

Tasted from tank prior to bottling, the 2016 Cornas Granit 60 has the potential to eclipse the 2015. The nose is an exciting blend of flowers, minerals and fruit, while the palate is full-bodied and generous without the hardness or austerity of the 2015. This standout 2016 finishes long, plush and bright. With only about 5,000 bottles made, shrewd buyers will snap it up on release.See detailed press review
