Beaujolais, FRANCE
$86. 99 Bottle
$1043.88 Dozen
ABV: 14%
Closure: Cork

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.

Other Reviews....
This highly structured Beaujolais has stunning concentration, but it’s also still so young and really needs bottle age to reveal its substantial treasures. On the nose, the smoky note is still slightly dominant, but there are also undertones of violets, wet earth and dried herbs. On the tightly wound palate there’s stunning minerality that’s beautifully integrated with the fine tannins and lively acidity. Drinkable now, but better from 2022.
