Sweetness

Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Mee Godard is an Asian-American who studied winemaking in both the USA and France. A fan of the Beaujolais region, she took over the estate of a local winemaker who retired without an hier. Le Grand Cras is one of three Morgon climats that Godard farms. Her appraoch to viticulture is conventional with low level use of synthetics where possible. Vinification is about gentle extraction and the greation of ageworthy wines with structure from the use of whole bunches and maturation in old wood. The Grand Cras is black fruit with subtle peony lfit, and generous body with silkty tannins and a lean acidiy that blances the ripeness of the fruit. This is a great choice for those who seek astisinal-style Beaujolais.
