Meursault Genevrieres 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.
92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound: "A vaguely exotic nose features aromas of Asian style tea, acacia blossom, apple compote and anise hints. I very much like the texture of the rich and solidly voluminous flavors that are notably more mineral-inflected on the lingering finish that is also agreeably dry and clean. This could use a bit better depth, but more should reasonably develop if allowed a few years of keeping." 06/22
