Biodynamic. Pinot Noir from 100-year-old vines. Irancy is a small hamlet with a little over 300 inhabitants, situated roughly equidistant between Auxerre and Chablis. The village lies two kilometres from the Yonne River and is surrounded by a large natural amphitheatre of vines. The vineyards, interspersed with cherry orchards, are planted on slopes of Kimmeridgian limestone mixed with red clays. These highly mineral soils and the extreme northern location help to give these Pinots incredible energy, brightness and a tangy, chiselled minerality. 


Goisot has a paltry 0.5-hectares in the lieu-dit of Les Mazelots, and his viticulture and vine age are now delivering serious depth and flesh. In the context of Irancy, the wine is a superstar. These are some of the oldest Pinot vines in France (in the world, in fact) and produce outstanding, super-mineral, savoury wines with irresistible energy. In the past these could be big chewy wines that were hard to approach young, but Guilhem Goisot has been bringing more and more plushness and seduction in recent years, as he has learnt to tame the tannins and intense minerality of this terroir.

Reviews

Outstanding. Here the nose is slightly riper and more complex if otherwise similar to that of the Voie de Cravant. By contrast there is a notably denser mouthfeel to the sappy middle weight flavors that deliver fine length on the rustic and mildly warm finale. This is quite powerful and an Irancy that should age well over the mid-term.

Deep colour. Hmm – that’s really wide, darker fruit but of energy. Extra fresh much more direct, there’s more overt structure here too – but what a great finish, long and vibrant, slightly dry textured – really great here

“The 2019 Irancy Les Mazelots comes from century-old vines grown on grey clay soils over a millefeuille of chalk. It’s fully de-stemmed with no pigeage and undergoes a 23-day maceration with one daily pump-over. This is clearly a level up from the La Voie de Cravants, delivering gorgeous, pure black cherry, blueberry and rose petal scents, all very elegant. The well-balanced palate shows nicely integrated oak. The granular finish is beautifully defined. A fantastic Irancy.” 93 points, Neal Martin, Vinous
