The vineyards of Irancy are located in a natural amphithéatre which protects them from the northerly winds and offers an exposure of South/ South West. The Irancy of Simmonet-Febvre is vinified with the traditional Pinot Noir variety with 5% of César, the oldest cultivated variety in France which one can now only find in Irancy.
Tasting and food pairings
The Irancy 2014 is of a lovely purple colour, with aromas of red fruits. In the mouth, candied fruits are detected, and the wine's smooth tannins renders it a harmonious wine. The blend with César permits the production of such a lovely and colourful wine that is structured and well worth keeping.
You can enjoy this wine with starters, charcuterie, red meats, game and cheeses.
