Francois Mikulski 2017 Cote d'Or ChardonnayIn Fine Spirits
The vintage is aged in oak barrels for about 10 months, then drawn off and put in tanks for 2 months before bottling. Rich and complex nose of candle, rosin, discreet citrus fruits, yellow and green lemons, mandarin, then starfish, iodine, salt, slate, and cast iron. Slight sweetness in the palate with caramel, orange, and applesauce. This wine is balanced with a slight bitterness. Powerful and massive with a very long finish. Pair with sweetbreads or veal in a cream-mushroom sauce.
