Jean Rijckaert started making wine in 1990 in the Mâconnais region, where he had settled, as co-founder of the Verget wine merchants in Sologny. In 1998, when Domaine Rijckaert was founded, Jean bought 4 hectares of vineyards in Maconnais (mainly in the Viré-Clessé area) and, as a lover of the Jura region and convinced of the area's viticultural potential, 5 hectares in Arbois. A visionary. Each region has its own wine cellar, so that one can work as close as possible to the vines. Mâconnais wine is made in Davayé. And in the Jura, it's made in Villette-Les-Arbois, a wine village near the wine capital of the Jura.

At Domaine Rijckaert, they promote biodiversity in the vineyards, where chemicals are never used. With minimal watering, they improve erosion on the steepest vineyards and help the vines to take root in the deepest parts of the soil: It improves the water balance in the plant and in the grapes and provides the plant with mineral nutrition and the specific properties of the soil. It also preserves the biodiversity of the macroflora, as well as the microflora. This is crucial for the wines as the fermentation is “spontaneous”. That is, it mainly comes from the microorganisms that are naturally present in the grapes.

Coming from a beautiful stony site on the plateau of Roche de Vergisson, the POUILLY-FUISSE "La Roche" is a wine of great mineral density, expressive and delicate. Of course this Rijckaert Pouilly-Fuisse La Roche Vieilles Vignes is a 100% Chardonnay from old vines. The cool environment on the western slopes of the Roche de Solutré gives this wine its beautiful acidity and the limestone plateau and stones that typical wet stone / pebble in the aftertaste. The wine is very expressive and delicate. In summary: A beauty of a wine.
