About Mee Godard
Mee Godard was born in South Korea to farmers, adopted at nine months old by a French couple, educated in France, and then headed to the US, where she did an undergraduate biochemistry degree specializing in wine science at Oregon State University. The university then accepted her to do her Masters, where she took on a graduate research assistant role in the Department of Food Science and Technology, studying polyphenolics, plant physiology, and ‘a bit of viticulture’.
Mee Godard didn’t grow up in a winemaking family, so she had to carve her own path. She headed to Burgundy, interned at Maison Chanson, Domaines des Comtes Lafon and Corton André. She got a job selling oenological products, worked in Champagne, and then, at the beginning of 2013, she finally found five Beaujolais hectares (12 acres) she could call her own. She moved to the Beaujolais and launched her domaine with three very special climats of Morgon: Corcelette, Grand Cras, and Côte du Py. Since then she has had one goal in mind: to make vin de garde from great terroirs.
The Beaujolais is one of the few places in France where an aspiring vigneron can bootstrap the start of their own winery. We aren’t using the word “bootstrap” lightly either. Mee is a one-woman show that prunes, farms, and runs a precise cellar. She is poised to be a big part of our perception of Morgon as the identity of Beaujolais continues to evolve with a new generation.
