Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault Premier Cru "Les Chalumeaux" 2013
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.
The village of Puligny Montrachet is famous for its Grands Crus. The Chalumeaux terroir is located near Hameau de Blagny, on a hillside facing east and on very rocky marly limestone soil.
It has a beautiful aromatic complexity that combines concentration and finesse. Floral aromas and notes of roasted hazelnuts are underlined by an elegant minerality.
