The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières has a lifted bouquet with orange blossom and fresh mint aromas that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is well balanced with plenty of salinity on the entry. There is good weight in the mouth with hints of shaved ginger decorating the long finish. This is a superb Meursault from Mikulski.

It was an opportune moment to visit Meursault-based François Mikulski. By sheer chance his wife Marie-Pierre was sitting next to me while dining at Cave de Madeleine in Beaune the previous evening. I noticed that she had left her mobile phone on the table and so I returned it the following morning (once I had finished my international telephone calls.) As Marie-Pierre began racking her brain wondering when she had made that two-hour peak time call to Uzbekistan, I located François down in his cellar and we began discussing the vintage… 

“Now I am beginning to have a real impression of the 2013 vintage because it was difficult to assess before fining,” Francois Mikulski told me. “I think it’s an easy vintage to drink young – there is nothing obstructing the wine – it’s fresh, perhaps commercial wine if you can say that. It is difficult vintage to judge.” Well that’s where I come in and as I opined to Francois, I gauge his 2013s to be better than his 2012s, thanks to their propensity to reflect their respective terroirs and possess a little more…how shall I put this…fire in their bellies. These are wines that against the odds want to show what they can do and I loved his Premier Crus this year, especially his Poruzots ’13. As you would anticipate, they were affected by the hail and lost around 30% of the crop, and I felt that their reds were compromised as a result, bereft of their usual tenacity. One missing cuvée is the Meursault Perrières. This was under contract and the owner felt that he could not afford to sell any to François because of depleted recent vintages. Still, I could tell that François is on the look out for a replacement source, so fingers crossed there. This to me was Francois back on form after his more inconsistent 2012s and they come recommended given their reasonable price tags.
