‘Tight, cello-sweet cherry and menthol nose. Vibrant, pinging with cherry sherbet and liquorice lace and so much juiciness that you want to laugh out loud. Gently chewy and gently stemmy tannins, reminding you, with an arched eyebrow, that the juiciness and fruit might make you want to go salsa dancing, but this is a serious wine.
She has a way of bringing out the dark, gravel-scented structure of Morgon without losing a modicum of glowing fruit. They are wines that evolve beautifully with age, and yet they are compelling when young. They have power, and yet a tangible quietness. The tannins are super-fine, the acidities strung like a violin. They’re wines that would grace the finest table, but would give equal pleasure on a picnic. You don’t need food to enjoy them.
But to be very honest, with all her wines under £30, and all of them stunning, elegant, vin de garde beaujolais, you couldn’t go wrong with any Godard wine you can lay your hands on. I’ve been tasting Mee’s wines pretty much from the start and can say without any hesitation that they are some of the classiest beaujolais around.’ Tamlyn Currin, jancisrobinson.com
