  • Situation

    The vineyards of Irancy are located in a natural amphitheatre which protects them from the northerly winds and offers a south/ south-west exposure. The Irancy of Simmonet-Febvre is vinified with Pinot Noir variety and 5% of César - the oldest cultivated grape variety in France which one can only find in Irancy.

  • Tasting and food pairings

    This wine 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.

    • Irancy 2022 - Burgundy Report, Bill Nanson - "Lovely!"

      This an assembly cuvée of many parcels.

      Medium colour. A nose of cherry-fruited width. Intense, more linear wine than the Epineuil - fine finishing intensity with a little licorice. That's lovely! (Uk, March 2024)

    • Irancy 2018 - James Suckling - 89 points

      Aromas of dried raspberries, porcini, dried leaves and iron give this an austere nose. It's light-to medium-bodied with crisp acidity. Lean style with a touch of fresh orange peel. Drink or hold.

    • Irancy 2021 - Burgundy Report Bill Nanson - February 2023

      More direct red fruit. Again a little deeper colour. More floral aromas. Full, energetic - more incisive fresh red fruit, with a more mineral and direct finishing This is very good. This not yet bottled. It won't be on the market for two years - currently, they are still selling the 2019 vintage.

    • Irancy 2020 - Vert de Vin - 89/100

      The nose is fruity and powerful with a sunny character. There are notes of warm pulpy cherries, wild blackberries and more slightly wild strawberries combined with hints of graphite and spice and a subtle, almost vanilla-like edge. The tart palate is fruity with juiciness, smoothness and a certain roundness and richness of fruit. There are notes of fresh juicy cherry, tart raspberry and more slightly juicy tart wild blackberry combined with a touch of violet and fine points of racy minerality. Soft tannins. Good length. (September 2023)

    • Irancy 2018 - 92/100 - Wine Enthusiast, December 2020

      "An ethereal note of red currant is subtle yet pervasive on the nose of this wine. Slight smokiness and
      peppery verve suggest a certain breeziness. That pepper note becomes deliciously pronounced on the concentrated, almost taut palate, framing the red fruit with spicy vivacity. This wine is unusual
      but lovely and long."

    • Irancy 2018 - Decanter - 93/100 pts

      A field blend of Pinot Noir and Cesar, shows considerable depth despite a lower stated alcohol -13% -than expected for the hot 2018 vintage. It delivers power, relatively speaking for Irancy, without sacrificing polish or finesse. Red cherry-like flavours and touches of charming rusticity are apparent in this harmonious wine. Surprisingly approachable and charming now.'

    • Irancy 2017 - - USA - October 2019 - 87/100There are plenty of the classic white and black pepper nuances present on the ripe and fresh red and dark berry fruit-scented nose. The delicious and juicy if lighter weight flavors possess a relatively suave mid-palate mouth feel before culminating in a moderately rustic and mildly warm finale. This won't win any awards for refinement (though Irancy rarely does) but I like the frank delivery. Note that this could easily be enjoyed now or held for 1 to 2 years first. 87/now+
    • Irancy 2014 - Vinum - October 2016 - 15/20

      Tart and angular, also a hint of rusticity; original. 2017-2020.

    • Irancy 2014 - International Wine Challenge 2016 - Commended
    • Irancy 2015 - 91/100 - James Suckling - April 2017

      I don't taste this often. Dark cherries and spices with some plum undertones. Dried fruits. Medium body and walnut and dried-mushroom character. Drink now.
