Moulin-à-Vent "Les Michelons", Mee Godard - 2021

Item # 44413 750mL

Beaujolais is one of the few places in France where an aspiring vigneron can bootstrap the start of their own winery. We aren't using the word "bootstrap" lightly either. Mee is a one woman show that prunes, farms, and runs a precise cellar. The lieu dit of Au Michelon is loctated in the village of Chénas. The soil is sandy and the parcel is oriented southwest on the slope.

Staff Pick Notes

With the intention of creating a vin de garde from great terroirs in mind, Mee Goddard established her domaine in Beaujolais with 3 of the greatest climats in the Cru of Morgon: Côte du Py, Corcelette, and Grand Cras. Truly a one woman show, Mee farms her vines and solely handles vinification: fair use of whole bunches, destemming half of the fruit typically, and maceration in cement vessels. Her Moulin-à-Vent's first vintage was in 2016 with the lieu dit of Au Michelon in the village of Chénas.

The maceration in cement polishes the tannins and really allows the fruit to take center stage. An aromatically dense wine with boundless potential for aging, Mee Godard is the vigneron to watch.




The range of wine styles offered in Burgundy rivals that of any other region. In Chablis, Chardonnay is left unoaked to produce lean, crisp, steely wines with incredible acidity - a far cry from the vanilla-oak bombs that so many consumers associate with this grape.

Beaujolais Nouveau is perhaps the most gulpable wine made anywhere, and it should be drunk very soon after its release, which occurs each year on the...
