Vincent Paris has rapidly ascended to become one of the stars of the tiny Cornas appellation.

Sourced from vines averaging 60 years in age and steeper slopes than the Granit 30, this bottling embodies the meatiness and brawn of Cornas while maintaining a thrilling freshness and mineral edge. Black plum and cassis flavors are ample and fleshy yet offset by crisp acidity and fine, upright tannins. Welcoming already it should develop complexity through 2035 and likely further.See detailed press review

50-year-old vines planted on a 60° granitic slope provide the fruit for this wine. It's 30% whole-bunch fermented with indigenous yeasts, then matured for 16 months in oak barrels of two to eight years of age. The wine is full, flowing and generous, very ripe and very long in fruit. It has a good sense of purity and is really concentrated, with a herbal twang on the finish and a saline, refreshing edge. Thirst-quenching and precise if very ripe.See detailed press review

Another terrific vintage of this wine, the 2017 Cornas Granit 60 features knockout aromas of crushed stone, blueberry and plum. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with juicy, mouthwatering fruit complemented by firm tannins. Admirably clean and pure, it should require a couple of years of cellaring, then drink well for the next decade or so.See detailed press review
