Vdp Collines Rhodaniennes
From young Crozes Hermitage vines
Multiple parcels, varied exposure
Alluvial soils with a lot of rolling rock (galets roulés), which absorb heat and restore the soils in the evening.
Sustainably farmed, including leaf pulling and green harvest.
100% destemmed, temperature controlled fermentation to preserve fruit, three week cuvaison.
Aged nine months in tank.
Brilliant ruby-red. Smoke- and spice-accented red and dark berry aromas and flavors reveal subtle olive and tobacco notes in the background. Smooth and light on its feet, showing good clarity and silky tannins that build slowly through the nicely persistent, gently tannic finish.
The Vincent Paris Sélection Syrah is produced from young vines in Crozes-Hermitage, and Monsieur Paris completely de-stems this wine and raised it entirely in tank. The 2016 version is excellent, offering up a bright and vibrant bouquet of black raspberries, a bit of grilled game, pepper, black olive and a fine base of gently autumnal soil. On the palate the wine is fullish, tangy and focused, with a good core, moderate tannins and a long, complex finish. I really like the octane here, as this is listed at 12.5 percent alcohol. This is really very good for a Vins de Pays level bottling! 2018-2026.
