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.

Hervé Villemade Cheverny Rouge is a captivating red wine that reflects the mastery of its producer, Hervé Villemade. From Cheverny in the Loire Valley, France, this wine is a blend of 60% Gamay and 40% Pinot Noir. The vines, aged between 12 and 39 years, thrive in an agile-sandy soil rich in flint, imparting a unique character to the grapes. The meticulous winemaking involves manual harvesting, a 15-day maceration period, and aging in wooden tanks without chaptalization. The result is a wine that beautifully balances Gamay's lively freshness and red fruit notes with Pinot Noir's silky texture and licorice undertones. This harmonious blend creates a red wine that is both indulgent and precise, with a nuanced finish of plum, black cherry, and occasional spice, consistently delivering a refreshing experience vintage after vintage.
