Irancy

A blend of three different lieux-dites; Grande Côte, Croix Rouge, Les Traces. Light red in color that Irancy shows some spicy notes and some cherry and raspberry aromas. Soft, it has a great mouthfeel with very elegant soft dry tannins and a light oak presence. There is a smoky element here that is attractive. The finish, with its acidity, shows the crispness of this northern production area.
