As for many whites there’s more depth of golden colour than in 2017 or 2018 suggesting a different profile of maturity and an indicator of a little more time in barrel and some new oak too. It’s the new wood that gives this a hint of sweet spice and vanilla. Powerful flavours of crystalline citrus and ginger, cream texture and plenty of weight add up to a showy wine. Opulence in a glass and worth holding a few in the cellar too. 2021 to 2024.
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.
