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 AdvocateThe 2013 Cornas Granit 60 Vielles Vignes is serious stuff. Inky colored and loaded with cassis, black raspberry, violets and licorice, it has beautiful acidity in its full-bodied, ripe, polished style. It has rock-solid mid-palate concentrated, and terrific length, so give it a handful of years in the cellar and drink bottles through 2025. Like all of Paris's Cornas releases, it sees only older barrels.
