The Denogent family is the emblem of the small Burgundian production of natural wines.
Expression of a terroir unfortunately underestimated, all wines of Denogent are natural and organic wines, produced by removing as much as possible the chemistry of manipulation in the aging and cultivation of vineyards that count up to 70 years of age.
The natural wines of Denogent are wines aged and fermented in used barriques of second and third passage, with bottling after 2 years in cask.
Jean Jacques Robert Denogent is a reflective type less impetuous than his children, extraordinarily nice, especially Nicolas.
The wines are very well made and natural vinification does not make them lose elegance, on the contrary, it increases their details and their acidity to the point that, even when they reach 14 alcoholic degrees, they are never "warm" on the palate.
These wines are an expression of in terroir much underestimated. Acids are there and the wines, even when they reach 14 degrees, never give the idea of being "warm".
In general, the wines of Fuissé are fresher and more complex than those of Macon, which are less detailed, but always very pleasant.
The Denogent family is spectacular.
All wines are produced in a very natural and organic way. The vineyards are old up to 70 years of age. Aging and fermentation take place in second and third passage barriques and the wines are bottled after two years of aging. Jean Jacques Robert is a less impetuous reflective type of children, extraordinarily nice, above all Nicolas.
The wines are very well made and the natural vinification does not lose elegance, rather it increases the details of the wines.
These wines are the expression of a very underrated terroir. The acidity is there and the wines even when they reach 14 degrees never give the idea of being "hot".
In general the wines of Fuissé are fresher and more complex than those of Macon which are less detailed but very pleasant.
Strongly recommended after tasting in the cellar of the domaine and in our tasting rooms in Turin.
