Domaine Robert Denogent 2021 Macon-Villages
2020: No Score for 21s yet - 90 pts William Kelley - Wine Advocate
A cuvée that incorporates lots of fruit from the commune of Verzy, the 2020 Mâcon-Villages Les Sardines delivers aromas of orange oil, baking spices and white flowers, followed by a medium to full-bodied, ample and lively palate, concluding with an intense, sapid finish. It's easy to see why it's a favorite with many of the region's best restaurants.
