Vincent Paris Cornas 'La Geynale' 2017

With 21 vintages under his belt, Vincent Paris has become a legend within Cornas, producing insanely drinkable wines from his six hectares of vines, most of which were inherited from his grandfather. ‘La Geynale’ comes from 100-year old, south-facing vines in Cornas, giving way to a concentrated, firm wine, full of dark berry, cracked pepper, and purple flower notes. Earthy and structured, with serious aging potential; a stunner!

Cornas, France

Whereas its northerly neighbors Côte Rôtie and Hermitage are the elegant gentlemen of the Syrah world, Cornas Syrah is a little more animale, its thick fingers smeared with bacon fat.
