Since Damien Martin arrived at the family domaine in 2010 Domaine de la Denante has doubled both in terms of surface area and number of cuvées. Yields have been reduced and focus is now on lieux-dits rather than large cuvées.
Today there is more focus on the fruit in the wines, says Damien Martin. There is also a better tension, with a nice minerality. The place is Davayé, in the heart of the Mâconnais. This is white wine country, not far from the iconic sites of the Rock of Solutré and the Rock of Vergisson.
