Expert Review:
Gary Walsh- 93 points, No mistaking this for anything other than Northern Rhône! Incredibly vivid purple colour also of note. Fresh blackberry, charcuterie, black pepper, dried herbs and flowers. It’s medium-bodied, firm almost frisky ‘glassy’ acidity, smoky and meaty, crushed rocks, distinctly tangy, but encased in boysenberry and fresh picked blackberry. Vibrant. Tight and slate-y to close. You have to like them gamey and spicy, but excellent wine here, in that sort of style. 93+ Points.

Vincent Paris is a native of Cornas and his first vintage was in 1997. He inherited most of his vineyards (some of which are 100+ years old) from his grandfather and purchased some from his uncle, legendary Cornas vigneron Robert Michel, on his retirement in 2006. The biodynamically farmed vineyards are located in various parcels along the southeast facing Cornas slope. Vincent's wines exhibit power, yet possess a determined freshness and elegance to them. His Granit 30 and Granit 60 take their names from the slope and gradient of the vineyards and average vine age respectively. Vincent's famed Geynale parcel is comprised exclusively of old vines planted in 1910. Vincent Paris is without a doubt one of the rising stars of the Rhône Valley.
