Les Vignerons Parisiens Les Templiers Grenache

8 in stock

Deeply coloured with a lovely rich and intense nose of ripe fruits and spice. Made in Paris, but sourced from old vines on steep slopes in the Southern Rhone, this will delight lovers of Chateauneuf, and you'd pay a lot more for of CNDP of this intensity.

100% Grenache. Two-thirds of vintage matured in second fill oak for 11 months.

The wine is named after named after Rue de Temple and the local Metro station.

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.
