Domaine de La Garenne, Mâcon-Solutré-Pouilly (Burgundy, France) 2022

($33):  Comparing this wine, from the southern part of the Mâconnais, to Domaine de La Garenne’s Mâcon-Azé, which is located in the north of the appellation, shows the fabulous diversity within the Mâconnais.  The bolder Mâcon-Solutré-Pouilly delivers more weight and more stoniness without losing any freshness.  Since the winemaking is identical their differences are due, presumably, to the soil, exposure, and climate — some of the elements of terroir.  To me, they are equally enjoyable, just different.
