On the Meursault side but well above the Combettes. In great years there is more lift and purity of a classical Puligny. This doesn’t give away much on the nose (good sign in such a youthful white!) and the palate is very much more about the feeling of ripe custard apple, peach and rhubarb fruits. There some delicate white flower notes too. Tremendous persistence and much more classical in style this. Very good indeed. 2023 to 2031
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.
