"In the glass, Paris’ 2017 “Granit Blanc” displays a deep yellow-gold with copper hues and profound concentration. The wine is viscous, with thick and heavy tears that coat the glass. The aromatics are incredibly powerful, with ripe quince, yellow apple, pear, peach yogurt, lemon curd, lilac and gardenia flowers, apricot jam, crushed stones, sweet spice, and honeysuckle. The palate is equally expressive. At once, the wine coats your mouth with rich textures and a great presence of acidity (due to the cooler vine site). Overall, it’s a bold and heady wine that is nearing full-bodied. You can expect the plush, slightly sweet fruits to populate your taste buds from start to finish without ever coming across as cloying. Pungent, powerful, and surprisingly graceful, it’s a wonderful combination that should be enjoyed over the next 3-5 years. When consuming, pour into Burgundy stems at 45-50 degrees and pair with shelled lobster on a bed of stir-fry, Cantonese-style! It’s a breeze to make and a fresh take on a seafood typically submerged in butter sauce. Cheers!"

"In a minuscule appellation that strictly caters to Syrah, you would never expect to find a Viognier/Roussanne blend. Utterly perfumed, creamy, and powerful, this is a special look into the beauty that comes from experimentation."
