Mâcon Lugny, Mâconnais

Domaine Alexis de Benoist

La Sagesse du Jesune Homme Gamay Noir 2014

A solid Beaujolais-Village, bearing the stigma of the beautiful Beaujolais wines. Tiled ruby color, of a certain concentration. Superb open nose, between candied red fruits (cherry, strawberry), dried floral bouquet (Pink, peony, iris), white pepper, and notes of aerial evolution tending towards truffle, medley, nail polish. Close to a Burgundy in more airy and more floral. Fine and final body on vivacity. Beautiful nobility, superb for its price. Drink a little refreshed.

Un Beaujolais-Village solide, portant les stigmates des beaux crus du Beaujolais.
Robe rubis tuilée, d’une concentration certaine. Superbe nez ouvert, entre fruits rouges confiturés (cerise, fraise), bouquet floral séché (Rose, pivoine, iris), poivre blanc, et notes d’évolution aérienne tendant vers la truffe, pot-pourri, vernis à ongle. Proche d’un Bourgogne en plus aérien et plus floral. Corps fin et finale sur la vivacité. Belle noblesse, superbe pour son prix. À boire un peu rafraîchi.

White Burgundy. More butter than oak but not offensive. It’s a winter white for Adria and me.

Lieu Secret Mâcon Pierreclos Chardonnay 2020

My white of the night, even though my guess for it as a blind missed the mark. Once more, the influence of sight led me astray, with the exposed Stelvin cap popping out of the blind sleeve leading me to identify it as an Australian Chardonnay. In my defense, the ripeness of the fruit does fit the guess. If anything, it just reaffirms my view that global warming (and the homogenisation of styles) has been making it harder and harder to discern new and old world wines as of late. That topic aside, this wine was just so digestible. Long with strong salinity, laser-like acidity, and luscious mouthfeel. There’s a mix ripe stone and zesty citrus fruits here, along with nutty, woody, and spicy nuances. The only element that irks me is a touch of muskiness which I attribute to some level of premox. Other than that, there’s richness, intensity, and precision here - all the hallmarks of a great wine. Delicious, and finished in no time at all. — 13 days ago
