Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault Rouge 2017
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 grapes are harvested in 2 plots at the bottom of the Volnay Santenots slopes. The wine is structured and powerful but retains the elegance and fruit purity of a Pinot Noir. It has a fleshy black fruits palate, with a bold structure that will soften after a few years in the bottle.
