Background information


  • From Burghound, Issue 7 (July 2002): "Mikulski professes to be nuts about perfect triage work as he says that it's impossible to expect to make something great in the absence of perfect raw materials. The grapes are picked as late as possible and Mikulski claims to have not chaptalized any of his whites since 1993. The grapes are pressed without the use of enzymes followed by 24 hours of débourbage as he prefers to use only the fine lees. Once the must has been transferred to cask, he uses a regimen of bâtonnage every 10 to 12 days and the premiers crus receive around one-third new oak. The élevage generally lasts 18 months followed by a light Kieselguhr filtration but no fining followed by a mise that is done in-house."
