The irancy, is a French red wine of controlled appellation of origin from the vineyards of Burgundy. Its area of production is spread over the communes of Irancy, Cravant and Vincelottes located about 15 kilometres south-east of Auxerre in the department of Yonne.
Vineyard of the Yonne valley. Kimmeridgian marly slopes with brown limestone soils at 130 and 250m altitude. Exposures are varied, notably south/south-west.
100% de-stemming; pre-fermentation maceration (4 to 5 days) ;
pumping over and pigeage; vatting time 8 to 10 days; matured in oak barrels for 9 months.
Deep purple colour, slightly garnet-red and rich in reflections. Fruity bouquet, with rich aromas of blackcurrant, morello cherries, raspberries and blackberries, to which are added floral and liquorice or even peppery scents. On the palate, the tannins melt together to give way to a firm, velvety structure.
Solid and yet charming, Irancy and its colourful juice invite you to dishes with strong and fleshy flavours. Grilled ribs (ribs of pork) are a zealous accompaniment, as the virile tannins are complemented by a beautiful aromatic power… The cheese platter can be composed of camembert, cantal, chaource, soumaintrain…
