2019 Domaine Mee Godard Morgon Grand Cras
Mee Godard is one of the shining lights of Beaujolais, crafting uncompromising and sumptuous wines from her vineyards located primarily in Morgon, along with a tiny parcel in Moulin-a-Vent. Across this small estate most of the vines are very old, averaging 60 years plus, and the vines are tended organically with a clear goal of using biodynamic practices in the near future. Mee aims to produce wines with the capacity to age extremely well, and as such can benefit from good aeration, or preferably a few years in the cellar.
Tons of red berries here, but also very spicy, married to abundant richness. But, because of the gamay acidity, it packs quite a punch, though there’s no impression of weight. Great tannins support the long, mineral and spicy finish.
