A big favourite in 2016, the bowl shaped Blagny vineyard sits high up above the conjunction of Meursault and Puligny. It has not completely avoided frosts but it has certainly enjoyed the late summer sunshine. What a combination of intensity and minerality. Extra fragrant, white flower, orange peel, white pepper, peach skin and it's way more expressive and finely balanced with acids than I would have hoped. Truly fine white this. 2023 to 2028.
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.
