Domaine Mee Godard, Moulin-à-Vent (Beaujolais, Burgundy, France) Michelons 2017

($27):  Godard just acquired a vineyard in Moulin-à-Vent, expanding her holdings to about 16 acres in total.  Au Michelon, located in the northern part of Moulin-à-Vent, has dark stones and dark sandy soil, according to Godard, which she says gives the wine a combination of power and elegance.  No doubt about its character.  The wine is more floral and suppler than her wines from Morgon with a suave tannic structure, imparting a velvet-like texture.  Long and graceful, the dark fruit and mineral aspect shine.  People who look down their noses at Beaujolais will get an education from Mee Godard’s wines.
