Domaine Robert Denogent

MACON | SAINT VERAN | BEAUJOLAIS VILLAGES │ POUILLY FUISSE
*At a fraction of the price of the appellations of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, to which they are often compared by aficionados and critics alike, the wines of Robert-Denogent offer tremendous value, wonderful richness, and impressive complexity. An added attraction for some—they age sooner than their counterparts to the north.

It is essential to put aside any preconceived notions about the young, over-cropped whites of southern Burgundy

The small parcels that made up the domaine were already understood to enjoy unique microclimates, producing Pouilly-Fuissés of great pedigree. Jean-Jacques soon came under the influence of two ardent defenders of terroir, the great master of Morgon, Marcel Lapierre, and American importer, Kermit Lynch. Little by little, Jean-Jacques has introduced radical changes to the domaine.

Jean-Jacques Robert took over five hectares of his grandfather’s vines in the Mâconnais just outside the village of Fuissé ; individual vineyard parcels that are planted with old vines (remarkably so!) on varied soils of granite, schist, limestone, clay, and gravel.
Naturally reduced yields imbue the grapes with terrific concentration. he wines undergo a long, slow élévage in barrel that lasts anywhere from fifteen to eighteen months. They are bottled after two winters in barrel, a treatment more common (yet still far from the norm) in the Côte d’Or, and something that really sets them apart in the Mâconnais
