Claude Denogent took over his father's vineyards at the beginning of the 19th century. After handing over to his daughter Andrée and her husband Jean-Jacques Robert in the 70s, they expanded production into Beaujolais too, covering a 10ha area with more than 30 parcels, all produced from Chardonnay and Gamay. Today, it is still a family winery, run by Jean-Jacques and their two sons, Nicolas and Antoine.
As members of Les Artisans Vignerons de Bourgogne du Sud – who represent 21 vineyards in the Macon region – every wine they craft has the terroir in mind. Especially as they source parcels from across a range of AOCs, vineyards and soils.
Their winemaking takes on a simple and traditional approach, with minimal intervention. This stripped back attitude is met in the vineyard too, with no chemical fertilisers or synthetic products in use. Their iconic Pouilly-Fuisse range is classically Burgundian, created from 50 to 80-year-old vines, and reflects their years of winemaking heritage in each bottle.
