Still showing the classic notes of crushed red berries however the tertiary notes are starting to shine through here pipe tobacco spicy liquorice ever present. The palates soft fruitiness has become more dark fruited with deep baking spice. The keystone minerality holds everything together nicely.

This parcel we’re farming comes from the family. It is about 40 years old. The yields don’t exceed 30 hl to the hectare which makes our annual production be about 300 bottles. The grape variety is 100% Pinot Noir. The vineyards are managed using non-certified organic methods. The sub-soil is made of calcareous stones laid on a fissured-plate bearing rock. The cuvée is vinified in a small wooden vat for about 15-17 days then put into an oak barrel where it remains for a minimum of 12 months.
We use a barrel of one wine.

François Mikulski's small winery, which is only about 9 hectares in size, has only existed since 1992, but it quickly made a name for itself worldwide thanks to its outstanding wines. Specialist journalists and wine connoisseurs like to compare his wines with those of the neighboring cult winemaker Coche-Dury - with the difference that they are significantly cheaper than them. The wines appear to be rather "modern" in style without actually being so. The use of new wood is only 20 to 30 percent. Cultivation takes place in a natural economy. The main focus is on preserving the natural balance and biodiversity of the soil. François Mikulski is a free spirit who is well aware of the traditions of his region, but who, when he founded his winery, didn't have to follow in someone else's footsteps, but was able to determine his own style. The "white wine specialist" Mikulski has also become a real insider tip for red wines.
