Domaine Mee Godard
"I happily discovered the Beaujolais several years ago. The beautiful scenery and its relatively unknown wines prompted me to settle in Morgon in 2013.
I produce wines from the Morgon appellation which are known for their power and aging potential. My philosophy is to produce complex wines that are both elegant and alive. As an artisan passionate about her work and the pursuit of perfection each day, I demand the best of myself in the vineyard as in the winery."
Before Mee Godard moved to France, she studied wine in Oregon, then moved her way to enology school in Montpellier. Her love for the Beaujolais area grew after working for several Burgundy based wineries. Beaujolais is one of the few places in France where an aspiring winemaker can start up their own winery. Mee is a one-person show that prunes, farms, and runs a strict cellar. She is part of a new wave of talented individuals that are actively paving a path for the future generation of winemakers by setting new trends. Everything is done by hand in the vineyard and yields are kept low. She is slowly converting the agriculture to biodynamic methods, though already practices organic. Her style involves using both carbonic and non-carbonic maceration for deeply structured wine. Keep an eye out for her Morgon wines of Beaujolais because she continues to deliver.
