Domaine Mee Godard, Morgon (Beaujolais, Burgundy, France) Corcelette 2017

 ($29):  Mee Godard, a young woman originally from Korea, is one of the rising shining stars of Beaujolais.  Her wines are not to be missed because of their precision and distinctiveness, not to mention their sheer deliciousness.  Located in Morgan, she bottled three different wines in 2017 from various climats (vineyards) in that cru, Corcelette, Côte de Py and Grand Cras.  The one from Corcelette has a charming roundness that she says comes from the sandy soil. Although lighter than you’d imagine for a Morgon, it still has supporting tannins that lend necessary structure.  For me, it’s the “Fleurie” of Morgon.  Lovely now with coq au vin.
