This Morgon "Corcelette" is deep, serious and elegant.

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 “Corcelette” vineyard is located at the Northwestern end of Morgon with sandy and granitic soils.

The bouquet sets the tone for a powerful wine, alluring with notes of blackberries, bitter cherry and cloves adding to the depth of flavour. The palate reflects the nose’s silky structure with dry extracts and an earthy finish. This is elegant yet powerful with fine lines.

It can be paired with game, charcoaled rib eye, charcuterie and a cow cheese. It will benefit being decanted for 35 minutes before serving and it can be kept up until 2027+. Please serve in big Pinot Noir glasses. 100% Gamay. *Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"The “Corcelette” from Mee Godard is one of the very best examples of Beaujolais in a new light. The wine is deep, serious and insists on showing a very elegant side."

At Domaine Mee Godard, the vineyard is grown with the utmost care; organically and with the goal of using biodynamic practices as soon as the vineyard is ready. The yields are kept very low in order to increase concentration and capture each of the very different soil types available across Morgon. A high proportion of the bunch is used (50%) and the must undergoes a long maceration to infuse nicely. Fermentation is made in concrete tanks and, once finished, the wine undergoes a second fermentation and maturation in oak barrels for about 10 months for this vintage. The wines are then bottled without filtration.
