Domaine Vincent Paris
is located at the southern tip of the village of Cornas. This young winemaker set up his own in 1997, starting his wine growing activity with 1 hectare of vines, a cherished inheritance from his grandfather. In 2007, he acquired the famous La Geynale parcel from the well-known producer, Robert Michel. Vincent Paris now works 6.6 hectares of vineyards of which nearly 5 hectares are in the Cornas appellation.
Vincent Paris blends his various parcels together to make his wines and has named two of these after their remarkable slope: Granit 30 and Granit 60. Only Le Geynale is vinified separately. Domaine Vincent Paris does not grow its vineyards organically but it uses treatments authorized by the organic certification bodies in order to be sustainable. Because the vines are difficult to access due to the steep incline of the slopes, the soils are not ploughed and are only weeded once, in the spring. Organic matter is provided by the vine branches left between the rows after the vines have been heavily pruned. Domaine Vincent Paris produces low yields for its Syrah wines.
The Domaine Vincent Paris range is made up 5 wines: an IGP (PGI) Ardèche white, Saint-Joseph, Cornas Granit 30, Cornas Granit 60 and Cornas Le Geynale.
