Volnay

The small village of Volnay one of the most sorted Pinot Noir from the Cote de Beaune in between Mersault and Pommard mostly compared from the Chambolle Musigny of the nord of Burgundy for is finesse and elegance coming from similar soil of Chambolle, high active chalk content and low clay.
115 hectares of premier cru vineyard 35 in all with the best premier cru:
Les Taillepieds
Clos des Chenes
Champans
Cailleretes
Santenots
Mikulski is a polish guy with an attitude to do a great wine in the Cote de Beaune start in the early 1990  with this incredible non classic label in homemade writing, so cool. Mr. Mikulski is a non interventionist  guy, essentially organic a "lutte raisonee" he balance his work around the health of the soil and the biodiversity of the vineyard.
His Santenots du Milieu from 2009 was rich and masculine lots of red fruit some mature and sour, dry branches autumn tree, mushroom character, forest floor, red apple skin and smoky meat aroma; with some licorice and tobacco… You can feel the oak in this wine they are quite big, however the time will smooth them. 
We don't need to forget Francois Mikulski had some training in California with Ted Lemon the winemakers of Littorai winery and also he work side by side with Roulot in Mersault.
He loves the oak…
