'Tank sample. Named after the old name for Paris. Equal parts biodynamically farmed Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne from Sabran. Vines 30–50 years old. Unoaked and no malo. Peachy and almonds. Same on the palate, gentle, with a nutty/leesy freshness on the finish. Well balanced but not very long. Pear and citrus lift. Moderate length.' – Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com, 16.5/20

'Pale yellow color, green gold reflections. Nose has beautiful expression of citrus fruits (lemon) and exotic fruits, and a mineral note which reinforces the freshness of the nose. Palate has nice roundness in the attack, very quickly underlined by a remarkable freshness. The fruit is present in the mid-palate underlined by floral notes. The finish is persistent, on mineral notes, and the slight lemony acidity at the end of the mouth gives this wine a very good drinkability.' – Winemaker

Producer information It took quite some time to get permission to open the doors of Paris’s first urban winery, Les Vignerons Parisiens. Moving grapes across appellations into a city, with négociant-style production, is the antithesis of the AOC – appellation d'origine contrôlée – the government certification that regulates French wine with roots back to the 15th century. The vineyards are, of course, located elsewhere in Visan, Southern Rhône which is a 15-hour journey by refrigerated truck. Les Vignerons Parisiens is a collaboration between 4 oenologists and biodynamic viticulture consultants who have worked with Southern Rhône vines for 2 decades. Focused on single varieties, the wines are all labelled Vin de France, farmed organically and produced using very simple winemaking.
