Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 94

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.

WW 91
Wilfred Wong of
COMMENTARY: 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.

François’ Mikulski’s father was Lieutenant Mieczyslaw Mikulski who escaped from occupied Poland in 1939, fleeing to England and joining the Resistance troops of the Free Polish Forces. There he met his future wife, a Burgundian woman working on an English army base, and moved to Brussels where François was born and raised. Luckily for us and the world of wine, François spent his formative summers in Burgundy, where he fell in love with the agrarian lifestyle and determined that he would one day make wine himself. He inherited his first plots of Meursault in 1992 from his late uncle, Pierre Boillot. Since that time, he has relentlessly pursued his authenticity, purity and elegance through acute attention to biological balance in the vineyard and terroir minded élevage practices in the cellar. After meticulous sorting in the vineyards the grapes are de-stemmed and lightly pressed. Natural yeasts are used in the fermentation after which the wines undergo an élevage 10-12 months. François typically restrains his new oak use to about 20%, believing that excessive wood masks full expression of the terroir.

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
