Les Vignerons Parisens is the first and only urban winery in Paris. Located in the Arrondissement, the enterprise was founded by Matthieu Bosser with two partners, oenologist Emmanuel Gagnepain and biodynamic viticulture consultant Frederic Duseigneur. Their certified organic grapes are sourced from four growers, located in the communes of Visan and Sabran in the southern Rhone. Whilst the traceability of the grapes is known to the exact parcel, the wines are not allowed to carry any mention of appellation, since they are vinified outside the region and because all but one of the cuvees produced are single varietal wines for which no regional appellation exists.
This single variety Cinsault is made from 40 - 50 year old vines then aged only in stainless steel. The nose is rich with flavours of dark and red fruits, but with underlying notes of spices such as black pepper and clove, with floral high notes. The palate is soft and round with fully formed, elegant tannins, but the fruit is dense and satisfying.
