The “La Geynale” by Vincent Paris comes from the best plots in the Reynard district appellation, in particular, the La Geynale hillside, with its century-old vines. It’s aged in old oak barrels for one year, and radiates a gorgeously deep, almost black color. It has a complex nose, with notes of black fruit and spices. On the palate, it is dense, powerful, and complex, with rich notes of black fruit, plenty of minerality and balance. It remains fresh and harmonious throughout.
One of Cornas’ fastest rising stars, Vincent Paris launched his estate as a vigneron in 1997 on only one hectare. He planted vines in St. Joseph and Cornas, and in 2007, was able to purchase the plots in La Geynale, which is filled with century-old vines. Today, he owns eight hectares, and with his exceptional wines, is quickly becoming a major name in Cornas and the viticulture world.
Store unopened red wines in a cool, dry, and dark place safe from constant vibration. Keep your bottle horizontal in a wine rack or cellar to retain the moistness of the cork. The ideal temperature for storage is between 16 to 18°C. Once opened, a bottle will be good for 3 to 5 days standing upright in the refrigerator.
