Mee Godard, Beaujolais Blanc 2022Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
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.
While the village of Morgon is known for its structured Gamay, the village also produces very good Chardonnay. The fruit is sourced from 60 year old vines both within and outside the village of Morgon. The wine is complex, mineral-driven and wildly successful as a match with many foods.
