François Mikulski Bourgogne Aligoté 2020

Burgundy, FranceFrançois Mikulski’s father was Lieutenant Mieczyslaw Mikulski, an escapee from occupied Poland in 1939, fleeing to England and joining the Resistance troops of the Free Polish Forces. It was there he met his future wife, a Burgundian working on an English army base. They moved to Brussels where François was born and raised. François spent his formative summers in Burgundy, where he fell in love with wine culture (fortunately for us). These organically farmed 1929 and 1948 planted aligote vines are planted in prime Meursault, native fermented in tank and older wood. The 2020 is sleek and streamlined, shaped with almond, pear skin, wild lemon, and flake salts racing along the flaxen palate through a lingering tangerine rind, saline end. Drinking very smartly now.Tasted: 15 March 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
