Meet Mee Godard

- What do you like to drink at home?

At home, I drink champagne since my vintage there. Wines from my friends working in different regions of France. And of course, Beaujolais!


- One wine to take on a desert island?

Tricky question! I would take a Clos Rougeard Rouge, a Chateau Simone blanc. And I would certainly will change my mind in 2 days.


- What's your view on natural wine?

why not!


- Favourites 3 places to drink or eat?

Le bambou in paris, where you can eat nice Vietnamese food, Auberge de Clochemerle in Vaux-en-Beaujolais for the nice meals, L'argot in Lyon for the meat.


- 3 top wine producers:

Chidaine, Jamet and Gauby

 

A word from Mee:

"After studies in enology and viticulture at Oregon State University and Montpellier, I did work experience with several vineyards and cellars in Languedoc, Provence, Burgundy and Champagne. Yes, I worked at Lafon... 

In 2012 I decided to establish my estate in Beaujolais, since I really believe in the quality of this region. In 2013 I had the luck to find an estate in Morgon with 5 ha of vines on 3 climates: Corcelette, Grand Cras and even the Cote du Py. Since 2016, I also make some Moulin-a-Vent from Les Michelons.

My overall philosophy is to produce complex wines that are elegant, alive and ageworthy wine, aka vin de garde. As an artisan passionate about her work and the pursuit of perfection each day, I demand the best of myself in the vineyard as in the winery"
