    Maison Rijckaert Winery Image
    The Domaine Rijckaert was created in 1998 by Jean Rijckaert, a passionate Belgian established as a wine producer in Burgundy since 1990. Nowadays, in addition to 4 ha in South Burgundy, the Domaine RIJCKAERT cultivates 5,5 ha of vineyards in the Jura where Jean felt in love of outstanding terroirs. Thus, we have two cellars : one at Davaye (South Burgundy, near Macon), one at Les Planches, near Arbois in the Jura. The Maison RIJCKAERT also purchases fine grapes from all Burgundy vineyards, vinificated with the same precision and the same savoir-faire than its own vineyards. Since 2013, Jean has decided to gradually pass the torch of his passion on to Florent Rouve and pass down the "savoir-faire" that have made the reputation of his wines : restricted yields, manual harvesting, slow and moderate pressings, indigenous yeasts, long wine aging, and...some precious secrets ! A careful and natural winemaking, which aims to express the typicality of the grape and the specificity of the terroir where it comes from.

    Macon Villages Wine

    Maconnais, Burgundy

    Crisp, balanced and delicately floral, Chardonnays from the Macon Villages are often made in the unoaked style and offer a magnificent sampling of what white Burgundy has to offer—without years of waiting and high dollar price tags.

    Within the greater Mâconnais, the Macon Villages wines are those within a few defined and optimally situated villages, either noted by the name Mâcon-Villages or as Mâcon followed by the name of the particular village, for example Viré, Lugny, Azé, Bray or Burgy.

    Commonly vinified in stainless steel or glass-lined concrete vats, these are mostly intended for consumption within a year or two of the vintage, though a few serious Mâconnais producers have turned their focus to smaller yields and barrel fermentation and maturation. Regardless, you can count on Macon Villages whites to be fresh and fruity with citrus and melon flavors, and aromas of white roses, honeysuckle, lemon-grass or fennel.

    This is a great region to explore if you already like California, Australian or Chilean Chardonnay.

    One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
