2019 Domaine Mee Godard Moulin-a-Vent 'Les Michelons' Beaujolais, France
Mee's first vintage from this parcel was in 2016. This new vineyard in Moulin-à-Vent, expands her total holdings to about 6.5 hectares in total. The lieu dit of Au Michelon is loctated in the village of Chenas. The soil is sandy and the parcel is oriented southwest on the slope. Mee prefers to use a fair amount of whole bunches. It depends on the vintage and the parcel but she usually de-stems only about half of the fruit. The length of her macerations vary but on average last 12 to 16 days in cement. She is aging her wines in a combination of vessels, always searching for the perfect balance of each for any given vineyard. She has mostly neutral barrels, foudre and demi-muids in her cellar.
