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 rarely found because of difficulties in achieving full ripeness in the grapes. It has very unique characteristics and in the best years produces wines that will keep for a great length of time.
