Domaine Verret’s holdings in and around Irancy cover 65 hectares, which is quite sizable for Burgundy. The property has been in the family for over 250 years, and it is currently run by Bruno Verret. Bruno was not interested in wine in his youth, only to discover it when he continued his studies in Bordeaux. He worked in a handful of wine regions before returning to the family domaine in 1995.
The Mazelots vineyard sits at the base of a valley with perfect south/southwest exposure, just north of the village. The soils here are quite chalky.
What more can we say about the 2019 vintage for red Burgundy? It will likely go down as one of the greatest Burgundy vintages of all time, as many vignerons have attested to. Verret’s 2019 Irancy Les Mazelots is bursting with aromatic expression. Fresh, ripe, red and black berry fruit intermingle with forest floor and chalky minerals; the palate is medium-bodied and the fruit and mineral shine through nicely. The finish is long and impeccably balanced. This wine will be at its best from 2023-2034.
