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.
