Winemaker Notes

The 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 "boostrap" lightly either. Mee is a one woman show that prunes, farms, and runs a precise cellar. She is poised to be a big part of our perception of Morgon as the identity of Beaujolais continues to evolve with a new generation.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

This elegant, perfumed wine is ripe and generous. Light wood aging in large barrels has given it structure without diminishing the polished, ripe black fruits and acidity.

V 92
Vinous

Shimmering violet. Expansive black and blue fruit, violet, exotic spice and mineral qualities on the highly fragrant nose. Appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors deepen and turn spicier with air. Shows fine definition and bright floral lift on an impressively long, smooth finish that features harmonious tannins and lingering florality. Best after 2022

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Opening in the glass with generous aromas of plums, cherries, smoked meats and Indian spices, the 2018 Morgon Corcelette is medium to full-bodied, velvety and charming, with a fleshy core of fruit, powdery tannins and lively acids. Deep and structured, it's built to age.

Mee’s passion for food and science led her to Oregon State University where she studied wine and then to enology school in Montpellier. She later worked at Maison Chanson, Domaine des Comtes Lafon and Chateau de Corton-Andre, then finally settled in Morgon.

“I happily discovered the Beaujolais several years ago. The beautiful scenery and its relatively unknown wines prompted me to settle in Morgon in 2013. I produce wines from the Morgon appellation which are known for their power and aging potential. My philosophy is to produce complex wines that are both elegant and alive.” – Mee Godard

Domaine Mee Godard currently has 5 hectares of vineyards in Morgon with 3 climates: Corcelette, Grand Cras and Cote du Py.

The bucolic region often identified as the southern part of Burgundy, Beaujolais actually doesn’t have a whole lot in common with the rest of the region in terms of climate, soil types and grape varieties. Beaujolais achieves its own identity with variations on style of one grape, Gamay.

Gamay was actually grown throughout all of Burgundy until 1395 when the Duke of Burgundy banished it south, making room for Pinot Noir to inhabit all of the “superior” hillsides of Burgundy proper. This was good news for Gamay as it produces a much better wine in the granitic soils of Beaujolais, compared with the limestone escarpments of the Côte d’Or.

Four styles of Beaujolais wines exist. The simplest, and one that has regrettably given the region a subpar reputation, is Beaujolais Nouveau. This is the Beaujolais wine that is made using carbonic maceration (a quick fermentation that results in sweet aromas) and is released on the third Thursday of November in the same year as harvest. It's meant to drink young and is flirty, fruity and fun. The rest of Beaujolais is where the serious wines are found. Aside from the wines simply labelled, Beaujolais, there are the Beaujolais-Villages wines, which must come from the hilly northern part of the region, and offer reasonable values with some gems among them. The superior sections are the cru vineyards coming from ten distinct communes: St-Amour, Juliénas, Chénas, Moulin-à-Vent, Fleurie, Chiroubles, Morgon, Regnié, Brouilly, and Côte de Brouilly. Any cru Beajolais will have its commune name prominent on the label.

Delightfully playful, but also capable of impressive gravitas, Gamay is responsible for juicy, berry-packed wines. From Beaujolais, Gamay generally has three classes: Beaujolais Nouveau, a decidedly young, fruit-driven wine, Beaujolais Villages and Cru Beaujolais. The Villages and Crus are highly ranked grape growing communes whose wines are capable of improving with age whereas Nouveau, released two months after harvest, is intended for immediate consumption. Somm Secret—The ten different Crus have their own distinct personalities—Fleurie is delicate and floral, Côte de Brouilly is concentrated and elegant and Morgon is structured and age-worthy.
