Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Auxey-Duresses Rouge 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.
The vineyard of Auxey-Duresses is located next to a valley, between Meursault and Monthelie. A black berry bouquet with a tart finish and textured tannins. A powerful wine when young, the tannins soften and the wine unveils itself when opened after a few years.
