Thierry Richoux

Irancy is a relatively new AOC, established in 1999 in the Yonne area of Burgundy. Yonne may be a familiar name because it’s the area where Chablis is located. Irancy is a red wine appellation that produces racy wine from Pinot Noir grapes with a 10% allowance for a local grape called Cesar.

Richoux’s Irancy is delicate yet displays a few mineral characteristics that you would also find in Chablis. The colder northern climate makes wines slightly leaner than the reds you'd find in the Cotes Nuits of Cotes de Beaune. The wine does, however, reflect its terroir, and rightfully deserves to be labeled as Irancy, not cramped into the catchall designation of Bourgogne Rouge. Try it with cheeses local to Burgundy or made in that style. Light meats such as pork or chicken that have been grilled would pair excellently as well.

$50 each. Approx. 1 pound

It is that time of year again. Autumn is here and the Vacherins have arrived. One of Switzerland's most prized cheeses, this washed rind cheese is more elegant and creamier than the Vacherins from France. It’s richer, smellier and just the perfect thing to scoop up (literally). We have them for a limited time, so come grab one before they're gone.
