Meursault Charmes Mikulski 2020 (750ML)
François Mikulskiinherited 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.
91 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A more elegant and cooler nose offers up pretty floral, citrus and white fleshed fruit tinged with hints of anise and jasmine. There is again fine volume and richness to the succulent, even seductive, flavors that also culminate in a clean and moderate dry finish. This should drink well after only 2 to 3 years of keeping though I would suggest holding for 6 to 8 in order for more depth to develop." 06/22
