Thierry has half a hectare here which is a pretty decent holding in what is possibly the finest 1er Cru white vineyard. The vines are 50 and 55 years old producing a miserly 200 dozen. A true vinous smell here of cool, crushed, grape skin, citrus and fresh almond. The palate has several layers; a delicate, watery grape feel, a more aromatic, white peach and floral side and a solid, but dynamic acidity that pokes the flavours at you for (timed!) 1 minute and 22 seconds. A wine you just really want to have. 2019 to 2027.
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.
