    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.

    These are the fun, fruit-driven and lively Chardonnays of white Burgundy, often offering some fantastic values and options that you don’t have to cellar. Flavors range from fresh green apple and lemon to melon or pineapple; some of the best are fleshy and mineral driven or balanced by a light touch of oak.

    Mâconnais Chardonnay may have the weight of their more serious Côte de Beaune sisters, but not quite the refinement. Still, this appellation is one of the best ways to jump from California Chardonnay to something new and begin to understand white Burgundy.

    The Mâconnais region is warmer and drier than the rest of Burgundy to its north (Côte d’Or) and has a landscape of rolling hills and farmland interspersed among vineyards. The region produces a lot of Chardonnay—Viré-Clessé and Pouilly-Fuisse are among the best—and a very small amount of red wine from Gamay and Pinot Noir. The soils of Mâconnais remain limestone dominant like in the Côte d’Or, making it a wonderful spot for Chardonnay to thrive. Gamay's home of Beaujolais lies just to the south.

    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.
