It’s not often that we buy all of these reds but they have done extremely well in 2019. This is possibly the pick. The vineyard almost abuts Volnay and the wine isn’t far off in style and quality. Just that extra bit of richness over finesse, but that’s no bad thing for a Pinot to pick up and go in the next year or three. Lively red berry puree. 2022 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.
