Domaine François Mikulski
One of the rising stars of the otherwise closely knit community of Burgundy winemakers, François Mikulski has turned a handicap into an advantage. No complex, ancient or elaborate names on an intricate ancient label on the bottles, just a seemingly handwritten name, his name, on a simple single color background pasted on a bottle of an authentic, elegant and pure wine. Mikulski studied winemaking and after his military service he went to California in 1983 to work in the vines and understand the differences between modern winemaking techniques used in the United States and the traditional ways of Burgundy. He started out with 4.5 hectares and works on nine currently. The vines are in the village of Meursault and the surrounding communes
