Sitting at the edge of the village of Cornas, the relatively unknown domain of Vincent Paris produces wines from the Cornas and Saint-Joseph appellations in the Rhône Valley. Buy wines of Vincent Paris
The talented 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 nine hectares, including six in the Cornas appellation, two in the Saint-Joseph appellation, and one that lies in the vin de pays category. Vincent takes as sustainable and natural approach as possible (without insecticide or chemical fertiliser) and the steep terraces where his vines grow are the inspiration for the names of his cuvées Granit 30 and Granit 60. He produces wines with a wonderful purity and delicious fruit flavours. Some of Vincent’s bottles can be opened when young as well as after some time ageing and his Cornas wines receive frequent praise from the critics. This still fairly unknown domain is one to discover sooner rather than later.
