Description

A nose of plum, burlat cherry and peony, the classic trio typical of Pommard, add to that a red and black fruit jelly, spices, grey pepper, nutmeg but also coffee beans, brown sugar and a note of floral gum reminiscent of geranium. On the palate it has a fruity juice, sensuality, a relative sweetness, certainly not the tannic and crude Pommard of our grandfathers, easy to drink with a beautiful balance, it reminds me of 1997, 1992 or even 2011 but this has more grace and precision, like for the Burgundy, the spices appear at the finish with white pepper and nutmeg. With a quick swish in the carafe, it can be drunk at 16 degrees, no more, with a nice veal chop and gratin Dauphinois. Raphael Gimenez-Fauvety.

  • Delivery Information

The plots that we farm are on average 25 years old. Our annual production is around 1700 bottles. The planting is 100% Pinot Noir. The vines are cultivated by non-certified organic farming. The subsoil is made up of fine aluvial river sediment. It is therefore less rich in limestone, making it heavier and more draining. The wine is vinified in vats for about 15 days, then put in oak barrels in which it remains for at least 12 months. We use about 20% new oak

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.
