Cavesa le CAVE, le club des amateurs de vins exquis

Irancy, Les Cailles, Gabin & Félix Richoux - 2017

The Cailles terroir often produces wines that are a little reserved and strict when young, but which age fantastically well: this 2017 is no exception, already offering tasty, fresh fruit, with tight but very fine tannins, in the purest style of the estate. It will really come into its own with saddle of venison or, better still, chamois! This is a great long-distance runner... Guide Vert RVF: 93/100; Wine Advocate: 90-92/100

This is the story of an estate that has become the emblem - and even the darling - of its appellation! For more than thirty years, Thierry and Corinne Richoux have always endeavoured to respect both the original and particular terroir of Irancy, a micro-appellation of great red wines from the Yonne; but also the spirit of each vintage, which must be reproduced as faithfully as possible right down to the bottle. The arrival at their side of their two children, Gabin and Félix, will logically and naturally perpetuate the spirit of this family.

To do this, they apply a few major principles that cannot be ignored. Thus, in 2010, they made official their move towards organic viticulture. Since 2011, they have also started to use biodynamic preparations (horn dung, silica and horsetail). They also take great care with disbudding and tying up. The grapes are harvested by hand, staggered according to the ripeness of each plot, with harvesting in small crates. The harvest is sorted and destemmed if necessary. Vatting lasts between 15 and 20 days, before long maturing periods of 18 to 30 months in different containers.
