Vincent Paris, Vin de Pays Des Collines Rhodaniennes Selection Syrah 2020Regular price $20.00 Save $-20.00
Vincent Paris is an under the radar producer based in the northern Rhone with vineyards in Crozes-Hermitage and Cornas. With a famed uncle, Robert Michel, as one of Cornas’ best growers, Vincent worked under his uncle for a couple vintages before venturing out on his own. He has just eight hectares of vineyards and only produces 2500 cases annually. He makes both “little wines,” which include his entry level bottles. He began making these to attract new customers after consistently running out of his Cornas and St. Joseph wines. Vincent believes that keeping the forests surrounding the appellation should be wild to influence the integrity of the vineyard’s ecosystem.
This Syrah comes from young vines in Crozes-Hermitage, but the wine gets classified as a “wine of the land” versus village level. This Syrah is a fresh affable style ageing for just nine months in tank, none in oak.
