In the middle of the hillside and fairly middle of the road in terms of mineral austerity versus the rich, the ripe and the exotic. So there is caramel and vanilla here to go with the zesty fruit and white nectarine notes. Beautifully sculpted, delicate in its length and with the fine acids to keep it fresh for some years. 2012 to 2019.
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.
