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 Davayé (South Burgundy, near Mâcon), 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 floras, 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.
