ABOUT DOMAINE FRANCOIS MIKULSKI

Founded in 1992 when Mikulski inherited his uncle's vineyards, Domaine Mikulski has been producing outstanding Chardonnay (and other) vintages from Meursault for nearly 30 years. Many of the vineyards were planted 50 to 100 years ago. And they consistently receive ratings in the mid and upper 90s, 

François' father was a lieutenant who escaped from occupied Poland in 1939, fleeing to England and joining the Resistance troops of the Free Polish Forces. There he met his future wife, Therese, a Burgundian woman working on an English army base, and moved to Brussels where François was born and raised.

François spent his formative summers in Burgundy, where he fell in love with the agrarian lifestyle and determined that he would one day make wine himself. After years of working on his uncle’s domain, François eventually took it over in 1991 with his wife Marie Pierre, herself the daughter of a winemaker (François Germain, owner of Château de Chorey-Les-Beaune).

He inherited his first plots of Meursault from his late uncle, Pierre Boillot. Since taking over from his late uncle, he has relentlessly pursued his authenticity, purity and elegance through acute attention to biological balance in the vineyard and terroir minded élevage practices in the cellar.
