  • Situation

    The ancient local grape variety of César (or Romain) is planted on approximately five hectares of land around the village of Irancy. As a variety, it is increasingly rare to find because of difficulties in achieving full ripeness in the grapes. It has very unique characteristics, and in the best of years produces wines that will keep for a great length of time.

  • Tasting and food pairings

    The strength of tannins in this wine gives it a characteristic flavour but also necessitates a certain amount of ageing before it reveals its full character. After ageing it has a spicy palate lightened with hints of raspberry and violet. This is a well-structured wine with a lovely crimson colour, and when young is full-bodied and lively.
    It goes well with roasts, game, meats in casseroles or with gravy, and Epoisses and Soumaintrain cheese.

    • Coteaux Bourguignons César 2022 - Burgundy Report, Bill Nanson - "Quite elegant"

      Extra depth of colour vs the pinots. A narrow nose, some depth too - but it's quite okay. Large-scaled in the mouth - breadth of flavour with plenty of tannin but actually less drying than the previous two wines - for César this is quite elegant. (Uk, March 2024)
