Domaine de Mauperthuis

Irancy is situated in the Grand Auxerrois region and stands on the right bank of the Yonne river, some 15 kilometres South of Auxerre and South-West of Chablis. It is a typial wine-growing village of the district. The slopes are for the most part composed of Kimmeridgian marls with an admixture of brown limestone soils and the Pinot Noir grape flourishes at altitudes of 130 - 250 metres. Domaine Mauperthuis is run by Laurent and Marie-Noelle Ternynck and have produced some an amazing example from this very interesting area.

Tasting Notes

Medium-plus in colour with a fine floral top line. The bouquet is bursting with fruit aromas of blackcurrant, Morello cherry, raspberry and blackberry. Floral, liquorice and pepper notes. A wine with energy and complexity and good intensity of flavour with a big finish and good length.

Food Matches

Irancy cries out for dishes with strong, meaty flavours. Spare ribs and other barbecued meats will find it an enthusiastic partner because it combines virile tannins with real aromatic power.
