Vincent Paris produces two Cornas reds from the same slope composed of fine granite soils, where his major pruning down to four bunches per vine produces incredible power and concentration. This is what he calls the Granit 60, from his oldest vines, and is available more often in 3 star Michelin restaurants in Europe versus in wine stores (we were excited to get some!). He also makes Granit 30 from younger vines on the same slope. The Granit 60 here is a dark, rich 100% Syrah with intense red and black fruits, savory spices and more. Serve with rosemary-infused beef or lamb dishes, grilled ribeye, marinated chicken dishes, or aged hard cheeses with dark olives.

Wine AdvocateLooking at the 2013s, these are impressive across the board. The 2013 Cornas Granit 30 is still raw and unformed, with lots of jammy blueberry, black pepper and meatiness, medium to full-bodied richness and high, yet sweet tannin. It has terrific purity of fruit and should drink well on release.
