Vincent Paris has become quintessential Cornas to us in the same way a ribeye is the definitive steak. The wines are deeply satisfying, bone-in Syrahs of confidence and structure. They follow a perfect recipe of exceptional old-vine parcels, granite soils, and generations of passionate winemaking,

Of course, as any chef will tell you – it's one thing to have excellent ingredients and quite another to execute an authentic and delicious plate of food. Mastery takes time. Here at Flatiron some of our earliest experiences with Paris' wines did not always hold our attention. He has exemplary holdings – including his retired uncle Robert Michel's prized "La Geynale" – but the wines were often more good than great.

However, recent vintages deliver effortlessly. Each cuvée offers more than you hoped, yet exactly what you wanted.

Much like a thoughtful chef, his selections are designed with purpose in mind – the younger vine cuvées are generous and joyous (a mood in which you will share, given the more than reasonable price tag), while the more serious bottlings pull you deeper into the terroir, exposing the mystique of purity and pedigree.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 92
"Consumers loath to explore Cornas because of ever-increasing prices should consider Vincent Paris's 2020 Cornas Granit 30 when it is released. Hints of violets, crushed stone, licorice and cassis all appear on the nose of Paris's entry-level cuvée, providing ample complexity. A strong effort, it's full-bodied, ripe and silky in texture, with a lingering finish. It may not be classic, put-hair-on-your-chest rustic Cornas, but it's a delicious mouthful of Syrah that's true to its granitic origins." -Robert Parker

"Very herbal, with leafy herbs like tarragon alongside woody herbs such as rosemary. Blueberry and liquorice too. Middleweight style, good concentration of fresh, juicy berry fruit and good persistence. Fresh, intense, gently saline and well-balanced. A good value pick this year. From 10-year-old vines, all destemmed."
