"Vivid red. Fresh, mineral-tinged red berry and floral pastille scents pick up a smoky element with air. Pure and incisive, offering sappy raspberry and cherry flavors and a touch of lavender. Closes taut, stony and impressively long, with building sweetness and silky tannins lending grip."
"I decided to craft wines in the Beaujolais region because I really believe in the potential of the region to make great wines.
My passion for food and science led me to Oregon State University where I studied wine and then to enology school in Montpellier. I later worked at Maison Chanson, Domaine des Comtes Lafon, and Château de Corton-André.
The Domaine Mee Godard currently has 5 hectares of vineyards in Morgon with 3 climates : Corcelette, Grand Cras, and Côte du Py. Since I took the vineyard only 2 years ago, I am not yet in biological agriculture but I am slowly converting the viticulture in order to adapt the vines to a new path.
I am committed to keeping yields and doing everything by hand in the vineyard before the grapes hit my sorting table. My macerations for the 2013s lasted for 12 to 16 days before being aged in barrels, foudre and demi-muids for 10 months, and then 2 months in tank before bottling. I bottled my first vintage on October 27th with 3 different cuvées: Corcelette, Grand Cras and Cote du Py." - Mee Godard
