A family domaine since 1835. Adele, Elsa and their parents Pascale and Thierry work together, ensuring the highest level of wine growing, winemaking, wine maturing and wine marketing.
Thierry’s swan song and a great wine to bow out with. He retired last year. We had a fabulous and impromptu evening on the very night that he stopped paying his pension! Given a more abundant harvest the grapes come from all around Meursault as proven by the cool, tangerine notes and fair depth too. Clean and crystalline finish. Very attractive.
Producer Information: Domaine Thierry and Pascale Matrot
Now run by Adele and Ailsa Matrot, the third daughter. This domaine is Meursault's most significant in terms of vineyard holding and quality combined. Thierry is one of the few modern growers who prefers to store and sell wine when it is near to maturity, foregoing the cash advantage. However, he does release a few cases for sale 'En primeur'.
Always known for the quality of their Meursault they are beginning to get quite a reputation for the approachability and quality of their reds. Their red Meursault ‘LA PIECE SOUS LE BOIS’ is as great as ever. It's unusual but i cannot commend it to you highly enough.
