Francois Mikulski Meix Chavaux Meursault 2010

Some time ago I met Francois Mikulski and looked through a range of his wines over some food and banter; I was really impressed. Super fine, tightly wound, blistering acidity and a coiled slate-and-steel-like-mineral vein seemed to be the theme. Mikulski founded his domain in 1992 with a focus on Mersault. His experience is curious for spending time with Ted Lemon of Littorai (California) and Josh Jensen of Calera (California) with some time at Domaine Roulot in Mersault too. Some serious pedigree. Viticulture is ‘lutte raisonnee’, reasoned viticulture bridging organics, judicious science and practices that ensure health of soil. The wine is interestingly enough clarified before ferment, though other winemaking is decidedly hands-off. Meix Chavaux is a renowned lieu-dit of Meursault without premier cru status.
