Domaine Rijckaert, Chardonnay, Arbois, Jura

The calcerous soils of Jura are perfect for Chardonnay, fermented and aged in French oak barrels of 6 – 10 years of age, lees contact but no battonage”- Wine Mason.
“I make my Jura wine like I make the ones from Burgundy.” This is Florent Rouve’s philosophy at Domaine Rijckaert in the Jura, and tasting today’s wine will transport you 50 miles west into the heartland of Côte de Beaune. Actually, the vineyard sites sourced for today’s bottling are directly in line with those of Puligny and Chassagne—albeit at higher elevations—which further adds to its palatal illusion”. Somm Select
