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

Antonio Galloni

"Opaque ruby. Highly aromatic aromas of ripe black and blue fruits incense exotic spices violet and a hint of olive. Densely packed and lively on the palate offering intense dark berry liqueur floral pastille and salty olive flavors a hint of smoky minerality and building spiciness. Finishes chewy focused and extremely long with mounting tannins lending shape and grip to vivid dark fruit and floral notes." -Vinous

"For whatever reason the sample of Paris's 2018 Cornas la Geynale seemed less expressive than his Granit 60 (both were tasted blind). Herb notes accent mixed berries in a wine that's medium to full-bodied and impeccably balanced with firm but ripe tannins and a long gently dusty finish. With its strong track record I have to think it's likely to show better next year when I revisit it."

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"A vibrant fresh style with a pure beam of cassis and bitter cherry fruit lined with mouthwatering white pepper and chalk notes. Shows a long violet echo on the finish. Built on purity this should age gracefully."
