This Morgon "Côte du Py" is a reference, complex, powerful and structured.

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 “Côte du Py” vineyard is one of six climats* of the cru of Morgon. The vineyard is located South of the town of Villié-Morgon on blue clay and volcanic soils.

The bouquet is floral, opening on violet notes and displaying licorice and black fruit flavours laced with rocky tones. The silky tannins are velvety with aromas pushing through a long finish. 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 2027+. Please serve in big Pinot Noir glasses. 100% Gamay. *Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"The “Côte du Py” can be muscular and bold but Mee Godard has managed to bring lots of elegance to this wine making it one of the best examples of Côte du Py I’ve had to date."

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.
