Wine Expert Note:

This Clos du Gaimont Vouvray is an exquisite white wine from the Loire Valley in France. On the nose, it offers aromas of apricot, white peach and honeydew melon, with a hint of wet stone and floral notes. On the palate, it is medium-bodied and vibrant, with a good balance between the ripe stone fruit and juicy acidity. The finish is long and minerally, with a delightful lingering of ripe citrus and orchard fruits. Overall, this is an excellent example of a classic Loire Valley white. Read more
Taste Flavor
info
Wine sweetness is a measure of the amount of sugar present in a wine. Sweetness in wine can range from bone dry (no sugar present) to lusciously sweet (high sugar content). Sweetness is usually determined by the variety and ripeness of the grapes used, as well as the winemaking process.
Sweetness

Intensity

Wine body refers to the weight and texture of wine on the palate. In other words, it is the degree of body a wine has, ranging from light-bodied to full-bodied. Wines with higher body appear to have a thicker texture and can sometimes coat the palate.
Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity
info
Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.

Domaine François Mikulski is a family-owned estate that was founded in the 1990s by Claude Boillot, François's maternal grandfather. The 8-hectare vineyard is located in Meursault in the Côte de Beaune subregion of Burgundy. The estate has been managed by François and Marie-Pierre Mikulski since 1992. They produce wines from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and own parcels in six Premier Cru vineyards in Meursault and one in Volnay. The Bourgogne Chardonnay vines come from a 1.5-hectare plot planted in fine alluvial soil. These vines are cultivated using non-certified organic methods. The cuvée undergoes approximately 10 months of aging in oak barrels and then spends an additional two months on the shelves before bottling. These two vine parcels, planted by François Mikulski in 1986 and 2005, are situated on the outskirts of the Meursault appellation, contributing to the wine's mouthfeel and excellent aging potential.
