Les Vignerons Parisiens Haussmann Syrah

6 in stock

Rich, smooth and very well balanced.  Quintessential Rhone Syrah (although vinified in a Parisian Urban Winery) with a light layer of white pepper coating the darker fruits. A light meatiness and fine tannins finish this wine beautifully.

100% Syrah. One third matured for 11 months in new oak.

The wine is named after Georges-Eugène Haussmann, commonly known as Baron Haussmann and chosen by Napoleon III to carry out a massive urban renewal program of new boulevards in Paris.

Les Vignerons Parisens is the first and only urban winery in Paris. Located in the 3rd Arrondissement, the enterprise was founded by Matthieu Bosser with two partners: oenologist Emmanuel Gagnepain and biodynamic viticulture consultant Frédéric Duseigneur. Their biodynamic and certified organic grapes are sourced from four different growers (to which Emmanuel and Frédéric already consult), located in the communes of Visan and Sabran in the southern Rhône. Although the project only started in 2015, the partners have built up and intimate knowledge of all the vineyards they work with over the past 15 years.

Whilst the traceability of the grapes is known to the exact parcel, the wines are not allowed to carry any mention of appellation, for two reasons. Firstly, since they are vinified outside the region (some 500km north of the vineyards, to be exact) and, secondly, because all but one of the cuvees produced are single varietal wines for which no regional appellation exists. The wines are therefore all commercialised as Vin de France.
