Absolutely incredible wine, very aromatic, wine with a gourmet approach with fruit and minerality, it is a wine of pleasure. Can accompany with seafood. This comes highly recommended by Fine Wine Direct. Limited stock available.

Vineyards
The Denogents have five hectares across three appellations: Mâcon Villages, Saint-Véran and Pouilly-Fuissé. They practice sustainable viticulture and instead of using herbicides, they grass between the rows to prevent erosion and to retain moisture during hot vintages.

Vinification
All of the wines are made in the same way, so the individuality of each wine is derived solely from the vineyard. The grapes are hand harvested and pressed directly into 228 litre French oak barrels for fermentation and malolactic fermentation. They spend around 18 to 30 months ageing in barrel (12-15% new), with the rest in one to two-year-old barrels without bâtonnage.
