The story was started in 1992, when he inherited his first plots of Meursault from his late uncle, Pierre Boillot. Since the 2000s, Francois Mikuslki was viewed as one of the new rising stars, and considered as one of the top winemakers in Meursault today.
He has relentlessly pursued his authenticity, purity and elegance through acute attention to the balance in the vineyard and terroir. He insists using very little oak as he strives to show the true purity and minerality from the soil and grapes. His bottles are also unique in its "label-less" design - simply using chalk paint inspired by the chalk writing on oak barrels during fermentation, and no capsules are used since 2003.
180 millions years ago Burgundy was under the sea.
60 millions years ago the movement of tectonic plates and shifting of the continents caused the base of the seabed to appear.
Today’s geological relief results from the emergence of the Morvan block and of its slow erosion, as well as the collapse of the Bressan block.
Burgundy’s gentle slope is a result of millions of years of erosion and variation in temperatures.
The upper slope is composed of hard rock between which silt and residue has penetrated.
