Francois Mikulski is not your typical Burgundian. His father fled Poland in 1939 to join the French resistance and married a French woman after the war. Francois was raised in Belgium but from a young age became enamored with the life of his uncle, Pierre Boillot, who was making wine in Meursault. As his uncle had a few hectares of vines and children who didn't want to work them, everything was in place for him to dive right into the vigneron mandeacute;tier. Heand#39;s spent significant amounts of time internationally, studying winemaking across California and Oregon and travels extensively to exchange ideas with fellow producers. His labels resemble simple writing on a chalkboard, lacking the regal crests and old-fashioned fonts that adorn most in Burgundy. He has slowly and meticulously expanded his holdings to a little over 8 hectares, and his vines are old, and often exceptionally old. Though his whole story and presentation is somewhat radical in this most traditional of regions, the only thing radical about his wines is how outrageously pure and delicious they are. He uses at most 20 percent new oak, even on his best cuvandeacute;es, and seeks restraint and minerality above all else.andnbsp;

Old world style gem. Plums, river stone, and cherry pit on the nose. Tart cherry, strawberry, sliced mushroom, thyme, crushed rocks on the palate, carried by a beam of fresh acidity. A pleasant grip on the finish tells me this will age nicely. Would like to see where this ends up in 10 years.
