françois mikulski 2010 meursault caillerets – rouge!


2010 François Mikulski, Meursault 1er Caillerets
Rather deeply coloured. You need to wait a while, the first aromas in the glass are reduction and oaky vanilla. Time is a healer, and you end up with black cherry and ginger cake – not a bad combination! Round, a little soft and unfocused (I blame the oak for now) but the intensity is very good, as is the balance. Dry, ripe tannic grain underpins a wine that is tasty but rather blurred at the edges. A wine to wait for, but it was quite enjoyable too! Next day, the last glass was more how I would have wished – more incisive – good!
Rebuy – Yes
