  • Situation

    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

    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.

      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.

      "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 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.
