Simonnet-Febvre Irancy 2019
Simonnet-Febvre Irancy has a lovely purple appearance. Opens with a nose of red fruits before leading you to a smooth palate and acidic finish. The medium-bodied palate is dominated by flavours of strawberry, raspberry and black cherry jam with oak and green herb nuances. A lovely wine that is structured and well worth keeping. Perfect for after-dinner drinks or celebrations with friends.
Ageing potential: 5–10 years.
95% Pinot Noir and 5% César. The fruit comes from around 35 years old vines from vineyards planted on a terroir that is located on marl-rich slopes. The vineyards of Irancy are located in a natural amphitheatre in Grand Auxerrois (a historic vineyard a few miles away from Chablis) that protects them from the northerly winds and offers a South/South West exposure. César is the oldest cultivated variety in France, which one can now only find in Irancy.
Vinification in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature between 20–28°C. Ages for 16–18 months in stainless steel (85%) or barrels (15%).
