2017 Domaine Francois Mikulski Meursault
The subsoil is composed of a base of rocks in platelets. Our aging in barrel of a wine allows to preserve the expression of the Earth. It is a very rich and concentrated wine, the stuff of a Grand Cru, to keep in cellar for aging.
François Mikulski combines two parcels, planted in 1930 and 1998, to make this intense, complex, well balanced Charmes. Notes of patisserie, citrus and honeysuckle are framed by stylish oak and supported by tangy acidity.

The 2017 François Mikulski Meursault started as a love-hate relationship. I enjoyed the wine's concentration but found a phenolic, bitter element on the palate and in the finish. After I reviewed my notes further in comparison to its siblings, I decided that the wine's youthfulness clouded my impressions. TASTING NOTES: This wine has plenty of offer. Its aromas and flavors, though not yet evolved, of ripe fruit, chalk and hazelnuts are all there in the background. Pair it with a stir-fry of organic chicken thighs and wild mushrooms.
