It is pretty rare to find such a wonderfully balanced and pure Cornas, Syrah from the tiny Cornas appellation in the Northern Rhone Valley of France, in the US, let alone one priced so reasonably. If $57.50 doesn't sound like a reasonable price, consider that the entire appellation covers only 90 hectares of vineyard land (about the size of most small-to-medium Chateaux in Bordeaux) perched on incredibly steep hills 400 feet above sea level that must be farmed manually, where most tractors couldn't even stay upright. Add to that the small amount of wine that does make it here is dominated by the highly coveted, very small production wines of geniuses like Thierry Allemand and Auguste Clape, at very high prices. Vincent Paris' very old organically farmed vines (some as old as 100) are actually right next to theirs and were eagerly sought after by both Thierry and Auguste when Vincent's uncle, Robert Michel retired. Robert was the fourth generation to farm the family vines and in the end, he decided to sell them to his nephew, Vincent, at considerably lower than market value, to keep everything all in the family. Vincent calls this wine, Granit 60 to indicate the approximate age of the vines as well as the slope and grade of the vineyard, which is planted on granit soil. It is a classic expression of Northern Rhone Syrah with that wonderful black pepper nose, deep, dark red and black fruits and plenty of acidity. A well structured wine that has a long life ahead of it.
