Vire-Clesse "L'Epinet", Regine & Jean Rijckaert 2009

product at this time


An overlooked brilliant Burgundy producer, perhaps because he's based in the Maconnais. Named Best Sommelier of Belgium in his previous career, Jean Rijckaert has been making brilliant wines in Burgundy since 1990 with fomer partner Jean-Marie Guffens at Verget. In 1998 he established his own estate and micro-negoce with his wife, Regine, making single-vineyard wines from the Maconnais and also in Jura. This stunning 2009 Vire-Clesse demonstrates his best work, offering the richness and precision of white Burgundy and, surprisingly, a hint of Jura character. Dry and mineral, with lime, mint, and pear skin notes. Refreshing and full of energy. Amazing buy for a complex white Burgundy of this lovely quality.

"The 2009 Vire-Classe L'Epinet offers notes of orange blossoms, lemon and honey in a medium to full-bodied, crisp, refreshing, pure style. Drink this beauty over the next 4-5 years." 91/100 Robert M. Parker, Jr., The Wine Advocate (Dec. 2012)
