François Mikulski is in the top Echelon of Meursault producers. His wines are bright, mineral, racy and incredibly fine.
Mikulski produces elegant wines that are highly sought after and can be hard to find. They start life pale in colour and are typically nervy and tight. Stylistically they are kind of sui-generis as they are not embellished by oak nor do are thy cloaked in reductive artifice - they are fine, precise and have lovely balance and length. In the vines Mikulski is a practitioner of lutte raisonnée, a system of cultivation that is essentially organic and noninterventionist. Lutte raisonnée entails holistic and balanced viticultural management with primary focus on the microbialhealth of the soil and the biodiversity of the vineyard. This wine comes from a variety of Meursault parcels including Meix Chavaux, Les Pelles Dessus, Chaumes de Narvaux, Moulin Landin , Limozin Pellans and Tillets. Most of these vines are around 35 years, whose soil consists of fine scree, rich in limestone gravels. Like all good Meursault this is insanely aromatic and holds a lengthy palate. Too good.
