friday night – a double mikulski!

2015 François Mikulski, Meursault 1er Caillerets
A deep and, of course, young colour. The nose is of simmering blueberry – it’s certainly enticing! The palate starts slow and narrow, getting wider and wider, slowly wider. A little fine-grained tannin and flavour leaching from your gums. There is so much more about this wine than the easy, accessible, delicious flavour – beautiful mid-palate structure and definition – but for today the flavour is very much enough…
Rebuy – Yes

2015 François Mikulski, Meursault 1er Poruzots
Wide and fresh nose, faintly toasty, more faintly and classically ginger-spiced. Nice volume on the mouth, just a little structure followed by a good burst of fresh complexity with mixed citrus before the finish. The finish has sweetness and a good weight. A fine drink with lots to enjoy, just a twist more energy would have made it even greater!
Rebuy – Yes

    2015 Mikulski – infanticide at 80 euros a pop. And to think I too have a chemistry degree – where did I go wrong.

    Coincidentally Bill 🙂 I also opened a Meursault 1er Les Caillerets last night – but a blanc, a 2013 from Domaine Laurent & Karen Boussey, Monthelie. Decently tasty enough, and I rate Laurent Boussey highly (lovely guy, into photography, you should visit Bill) but I’m not convinced ‘Caillerets’ is ‘proper’ Chardonnay terroir & would have happily swapped (bet you wouldn’t !) for the Mikulski (Francois another ‘top’ winemaker imho).

Agree? Disagree? Anything you'd like to add?
