The Matrots have 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 bottles. Tasted only just after it's racking into tank for the final assemblage and so a bit clunky. But you can see the immense complexity and fine acidity. Will be a classic. 2026 to 2035+
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.
