MXN $1100

Grape: 100% Chardonnay

Appellation: Mâcon Villages AOC

You’ll taste/smell: these winemakers are experts in Chardonnay. This Mâcon-Villages Les Sardines is a single-variety beauty, made from select parcels and aged in non-new barriques for 18 months. On the nose you’ll enjoy enticing aromas of ripe white fruit, pastry notes and toasted touches. On the palate it is intense, creamy and enveloping. It reveals a good structure, crisp acidity and a long finish, with balanced freshness and minerality.

Good to have it with: fantastic match to hors d’oeuvres at the start of the night or a spring vegetable risotto for dinner.

The Winery: Domaine Robert Denogent

Domaine Robert-Denogent is now headed by Jean-Jacques Robert, who took over his family’s five hectares of vines back in 1988. Although most of the family’s past harvests had been sold off to cooperatives, Jean-Jacques quickly became passionate about learning his vineyards’ unique microclimates, advocating for terroir, and producing estate-grown wines that rivaled some of northern Burgundy’s best. Robert-Denogent’s old vines are rooted into various soil types and always undergo a long and slow aging process.

Robert-Denogent is a family Domaine that has passed down a passion for wine from generation to generation since 1922. Jean-Jacques Denogent and his son Nicolas are currently in charge of producing the wines, with most of the parcels coming from 50 to 70-year-old vines. The winemaking philosophy follows a simple and traditional approach, with minimal intervention.

Respectful towards the environment and concerned about the ecosystem, the Domaine tries not to intervene in the natural process of vine-growing. They use zero chemicals, instead cultivating between the rows to prevent erosion and maintain humidity.
