Granite 60 owes its name to the granite soils and steep slope (60°) of the parcels from which it derives. Its sixty-year-old Syrah vines are carefully cultivated, harvested by hand and destemmed. The grapes are cold-macerated for a week and fermented without external yeasts. Vincent Paris performs punch-downs and pump-overs twice a day. The wine is then matured for 3 months in tanks and oak casks. This Cornas combines power and refinement with notes of black berries, pear, spices and violets. Its full-bodied, round, refined palate has an elegant finish. Its length is remarkable, as is its keeping potential.
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.
