Vincent Paris Selection - Collines Rhodaniennes Syrah 2021
A stop at Vincent Paris has long been a dream for us. Luckily we were able to sneak away from our duties in Burgundy for a visit just over a week ago. While we've long been fans of the excellent Cornas that is making Vincent one of the northern Rhone's most sought after producers, we were smitten with this one of his more humble bottlings from the start.
Working to keep this wine fresh and inviting Vincent uses 100% de stemmed young vine Syrah from Crozes-Hermitage. The wine does not touch a toothpick's worth of wood. Vincent vinifies and raises this wine in stainless steel tanks.
Perhaps sensing our approval of this fruity, forward and peppery Syrah, Vincent told us that this vintage is "..fresh and will be ready to drink quickly." ie earlier. His expressions told us that he knows how good this wine is. This is Syrah is our new go to!
