Nicolas Vauthier has been a big fan of natural wines; he has been on the forefront of promoting the wines he loves for many years. He opened Aux Crieurs de Vins, a well-known and favorite natural wine bar in Troyes in nearby Champagne. Aux crieurs was one of the first natural wine bars in France, and its status is still legendary today. He sold his interest in the wine bar and used his many years of experience tasting the best natural wines France had to offer, to start his own micro-negociant winery, in the spirit of other small Burgundian winemakers such as Philippe Pacalet. Today he works exclusively with the less desired appellations of Northern Burgundy, including Chitry, Irancy and Epineuil, working with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Aligoté.
Irancy— Back to the top
This is a light wine that is very fruit forward and boisterous, thanks to a short elevage of 8 month in large barrels.
Varietal: Pinot Noir
Vinification: The wine is fermented semi-carbonically in fiber-glass tank. It is aged in 225-liter used oak barrels until it is ready to be bottled without fining or filtration with minimal addition of sulfur.
