Irancy wines

Despite once possessing a considerable reputation, the wines of Irancy had long since lost out to their more famous cousins in the Côte-d''Or. However, from the 1980s a number of producers have worked to change this situation and in 1999 they were rewarded with an area specific AOC. The area primarily produces red wines, predominantly from the Pinot noir grape, although a small amount of rosé is also produced. Some producers also include small quantities of César and Tressot; lesser known Burgundy grape varieties.

Irancy''s unusual topography - it lies in the hollow of a valley whose slopes are covered with vines and cherry trees - shelters it from some of the worst of the winter weather, whilst also allowing for sufficient sun to ripen the grapes. The area is one of the most northerly for red wine grape growing.

In most years Irancy wines can be consumed within three or four years of bottling, however, many vintages will continue to improve for many years beyond that.
