Making sense of the complexity of the complexity of Burgundy isn’t easy.
Though Burgundy only comprises 5% of France’s vineyard area, it holds 100 different Appellations, 25% of the entire French total. There are no less than 5,000 growers, 85% of whom own less than 10 hectares, and four fifths of them make wine.

Domaine Ferrari, Irancy, 2019
"Nicolas Ferrari, one of the leading young producers in Irancy, succeeded admirably with his 2019s. Subtle spiciness is a welcome counterpoint to the more black than red fruit flavours displayed here. The sunshine of the vintage explains the wine’s succulence, while the cooler nights and Irancy’s northern locale capture balancing acidity. Suave tannins allow for immediate enjoyment." 91/100 Irancy: regional profile plus 20 wines to try, Michael Apstein, March 21, Decanter.
Assembled from numerous plots all over the appellation, with about half aged in barrel. Includes about 2% of César, a local grape. Pure perfume of cherries and strawberries – and that combination of the ripeness of black cherries and the freshness of red berries pervades the wine. Lovely fruit intensity all the way to the finish. Really aromatic. Super Pinot at this price. Now-2026
Domaine Ferrari - with son Nicolas taking over father Christophe, who began buying vineyards around the village in 1987 - is among the leaders in the appellation. Christophe considers 2019 a really special vintage there, offering spectacularly ripe and clean fruit. The style of the wines is traditional Burgundy: full-flavoured and ageworthy. They may not show the finesse of the finest of the Côte d’Or – but they are only a fraction of the price. If you used to buy Gevrey-Chambertin, switched to the Côte de Beaune but can’t afford that any more, get stuck in. Or if you are wealthier treat these as your midweek drinking!
