Domaine de La Garenne, Mâcon Azé (Burgundy, France) 2022

($33):  It is worth repeating — the Mâconnais is the place to fine excellent white wines, especially from the 2022 vintage, at reasonable prices.  As more and more growers discover the beauty of this part of Burgundy, we will see wines, like this one, that provide greater specificity regarding the origin of the grapes.  Azé, a small village in the northern part of the Mâconnais, is known for producing distinctive wines, which is why you will find its name on the label as opposed to the generic, Mâcon-Villages.  Domaine de La Garenne’s stylish 2022 combines the allure of white flowers with a subtle minerality, freshness and verve.  It is a delight.
