Judge a book by its cover on Sunday: Mikulski Aligoté
There’s a reason why Françcois Mikulski makes his labels so strikingly simple: he wants you to think about what’s inside the bottle, not out… In under two decades in Mersault, Polish-born Mikulski has become a legend in Mersault, where he is producing some of the greatest expressions of white Burgundy, using all natural techniques in the cellar and in the vineyard — most importantly, ambient native yeasts that occur spontaneously on the skins of his grapes.
We’re not the only ones who dig his Aligoté, the unknown white grape of Burgundy, bright and fresh, and meant for drinking young, a favorite summer wine. Here’s what top wine blogger David McDuff had to say about this wine:
Right up front, this delivers a nose of sour rocks and pear skins, aromas that eventually become riper and rounder. Nice front palate flesh is contrasted by bracing acids and grippy texture on the finish. In the big picture, it’s a simple wine. But it’s a pretty serious Aligoté, one that delivers admirable concentration, balance and ripe lemon-lime fruit.
Dig it with us on Sunday…
