Description

Tends to be more mineral, expressive of terroir as opposed to fruit forward and it always has longevity. This is certainly the shy one of the bunch now. Spritzy, firm acids hold in a bucket load of dried apricot fruit and there's a note of walnut and nut kernel. I thought the 2016 and 2017 were the high water mark. Seems now that you should drink some of those and fill the holes in the cellar with as much of this as you can get your hands on! 2027 to 2036.

THE CELLARS OF THE YOUNG FRANçOIS MIKULSKI LIE DIRECTLY BEHIND THE GREAT COMTE LAFON. INSIDE THERE ARE SOME 300 BARRELS, MOST NEW AND ONLY THREE OF THEM FILLED WITH THE GREAT MEURSAULT 1ER CRU ‘LES GENEVRIèRES’. SINCE 2003, THERE IS A NEW INSTALLATION TO THE EAST OF THE VILLAGE BUT THE BIG WINES WILL NEVER MOVE FROM THEIR SPIRITUAL HOME IN MEURSAULT.

THE WINES ARE HEAVYWEIGHT WITH CREAM, BUTTER, VANILLA AND A LITTLE TOASTINESS (HIS NEVERS OAK IS OF MEDIUM TOAST). THE FRUIT OF THE MEURSAULT IS VERY TROPICAL AND PEACHY IN STYLE. THE 1ER CRU ‘LES PORUZOTS’ IS MORE TRADITIONAL, SHOWING HONEY, YEAST AND MINERAL CHARACTERS. 1ER CRU ‘LES GENEVRIèRES’ ADDS A VEGETAL, ARTICHOKE DIMENSION AND IS TRULY AWESOME. INDEED I AM FOREVER FIGHTING AGAINST THE DEMANDING AMERICANS FOR THESE WINES.
