Domaine Mee Godard, Morgon 'Côte du Py' Passerelle 577 2016
The Cuvée Passerelle 577 comes from a specific set of old vine parcels from within Mee's Cote du Py holdings. Tight as, but this purrs. Shy on the nose in the best way, it draws you in and takes you for a ride on the palate. Everything is in check, ample freshness, lovely tannins, supple fruit. Slowly building. What a wine.
