This Morgon "Passerelle 577" is powerful and elegant with a calculated precision.

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 "Passerelle 577" pays tribute to Mee's origins in South Korea and the country she now calls home: France. As for the number, it's nothing less than her lucky number. This cuvée is made from an over performing part of her Côte de Py vineyard, where the berries are naturally smaller.

The bouquet is intense, balanced to perfection with black fruit notes, bitter cherry, fresh strawberry and vibrant inner energy. The palate is pronounced yet admirably elegant with high tones of minerality. 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.

"The “Passerelle 577” is juggling with a brilliant attitude between power and elegance with calculated precision."

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 to 70%) 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 an extensive time (16 to 18 months). The wines are then bottled without filtration.
