On the Meursault side but well above the Combettes. In great years there is more lift and purity of a classical Puligny. Fine acids, white nectarine, some riper peach in appealing layers of fruit and with a more closed and saline finish. This reminds me of the 2014 with a little more concentration and complexity. 2025 to 2033.
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.
