François Mikulski combines two parcels, planted in 1930 and 1998, to make this intense, complex, well balanced Charmes. Notes of patisserie, citrus and honeysuckle are framed by stylish oak and supported by tangy acidity.
This wine comes from a variety of Meursault parcels (Meix Chavaux, Les Pelles Dessus, Chaumes de Narvaux, Moulin Landin , Limozin Pellans and Tillets), whose wines are produced separately and then blended (except for some vintages and Meix Chavaux and Limozin, which are bottled separately). They cover a total area of 1.5 hectares.
The average age of the vines is 35 years.
Their vines are 100% Chardonnay.
Annual production: around 9,000 bottles.
The vines are cultivated using non-certified organic methods.
The subsoil consists of fine scree, rich in limestone gravels.
It is served as an accompaniment to hot shellfish, fish or white meat, preferably with butter or cream sauce (chicken with cream and morels; scallops, hot oysters, etc.)
When mature, its palate and nose are explosive, releasing a whole palette of aromas: honey, exotic fruits, butter, hazelnut, grilled almonds, yellow fruit, aniseed, caramel, and more.
