Description

Mee Godard Moulin-a-Vent "Les Michelons” 2020

The Beaujolais is one of the few places in France where an aspiring vigneron can bootstrap the start of their own winery. Mee is a one woman show that prunes, farms, and runs a precise cellar. The lieu dit of Au Michelon is loctated in the village of Chénas. The soil is sandy and the parcel is oriented southwest on the slope.

Sultry and velvety body and texture with flavors of plum, black cherry, violets, cinnamon spice and layered earthiness really tie this together. The maceration in cement polishes the tannins and allows the fruit to take center stage. An aromatically dense wine with boundless potential for aging, Mee Godard is the vigneron to watch.

"Les Michelons" is a vineyard that's just over a hectare in the cru of Moulin-à-Vent. This is Mee Godard's only current vineyard holdings outside of Morgon. Yields from the vines are extremely low, but deliver dense and complex wines. They undergo a maceration in concrete tanks and then age in a mix of oak that is both old and new, large and small for 12 to 18 months depending on the vintage.
