from the importer: This Morgon “Grand Cras” is elegant, silky and fruity.
Domaine Mee Godard allows us a glimpse of the future of the Beaujolais region at its best. It’s a small Domaine of six hectares of vineyards, mostly located in the sumptuous Morgon. The uncompromising attitude established by Mee, coupled with very old vines across the estate (60 years of age on average) produces state of the art, profound, complex wines with lots of character. The “Grand Cras” vineyard is one of six climats* of the cru of Morgon. The vineyard is located in the Southeast of the Côte de Py on alluvial, shist and granitic soils.
The bouquet is full and broad with wild blackberry, fresh strawberry and blackcurrant flavours. This is fine and powerful. The palate echoes the nose, with subtle plum and licorice notes built on a fine tannic structure. It can be paired with game, charcoaled rib eye, charcuterie and a cow cheese.
It will benefit from being decanted for 35 minutes before serving and it can be kept up until 2026+. Please serve in big Pinot Noir glasses. 100% Gamay. *Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.
