A Cornas which owes its name to the granitic terroir from which it came. More info
As you can imagine, this Cornas owes its name to the granite terroir from where it originated. It is here that young vines of Syrah were grown in a sustainable manner and harvested by hand. After destemming, partial destemming and cold maceration (to preserve the freshness and delicacy of the fruity notes), the wine was aged for three months in vats and for one year in used oak barrels (from two to eight years old). On tasting, this wine with an intense ruby hue exudes an aromatic bouquet of great depth of black fruit and spices. Delicious when young, however, it will become more complex after several years and requires gourmet pairings with tasty red meat.
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. This still fairly unknown domain is one to discover sooner rather than later.
