Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault Premier Cru "Charmes" 2015
Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot is a producer, located in the Burgundy village of Meursault, in the heart of the Côte de Beaune. It focuses primarily on the production of white wines made from Chardonnay and Aligoté, making a total of seven premier cru white wines. The domaine was founded by Joseph and Marguerite Matrot in the early part of the 20th Century and has remained in the family.
Today, Domaine Matrot has vineyards holdings in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie and Maranges. This includes land in the famous Charmes and Perrieres Premier Cru vineyards in Mersault.
From 2000, all of Domaine Matrot's vineyards have been cultivated using only organic practices in a gradual process that first started in 1976.
Les Charmes is considered the archetype of Meursault wines. This appellation is the largest of the Meursault Premier Cru wines. The winery owns four plots, of which 70% are located in Charmes Dessus.
Les Charmes is a well-balanced wine with both the ampleness of the Charmes Dessous and the minerality and elegance of the Charmes Dessus. Charming in appearance, it is both powerful and full-bodied with a soft and full finish.
