Region: Irancy, Burgundy, France
Producer: Domaine Gueguen
Grape: Pinot Noir
Type: Red Wine
The color is ruby, sometimes drawing on garnet, intense and brilliant.
Nose: The red fruit "tip": raspberry, cherry, hint of sour cherry. Black fruit (blackcurrant, blackberry) enhances this lively and fresh aromatic range on a more heady tone. The violet sometimes brings floral accents. Older, irancy will evoke spices, truffles, leather, undergrowth.
Palate: Rather stout and rich, Irancy presents a well-marked balance between substance and liveliness. The tannic structure is light but presents creaminess in the mouth. A few years of aging give it elegance and depth.
Serving suggestions: Charcuterie, ham with parsley, meat in sauce, duck with olives, salted lentils, beef, cheeses (époisses, chaource, soumaintrain).
