The Matrot domaine is one of the oldest estate-bottlers in Burgundy and one of the largest and most important properties in Meursault. It is widely represented on the wine lists of France's greatest restaurants, and has been distributed in the United States for over thirty years. Thierry Matrot and his wife, Pascale are the owners.

The domaine farms about 3/4 of its 45 acres, some of the finest vineyards in the heart of Burgundy.The average age of the vines is an impressive 30 years. Thierry Matrot works towards the achievement of one major goal: to produce a wine that retains its elegance while maximizing both the fruit and the native tang of the soil. In order to accomplish this goal, he relies upon his wine making philosophy: "wine is made in the vineyards ƒ?? and far less than people think, in the cellar. However talented the oenologist, with poor raw materials he is lost before he has even started." 100% estate-bottling has been practiced at the domaine since Thierry's grandfather, Joseph Matrot, took it over in 1908.

TASTING NOTES: This wine from steep slopes with clayey-calcareous subsoils is always strongly marked by its terroir. Its mineral and flinty character is unique in Meursault. You will notice the contrast between minerality and notes of honey in the bouquet. The rich, fruity and powerful aromas are highlighted by spicy and mineral notes. Delicious exotic dishes will pair perfectly with this complex wine, whose personality will have fully developed after three to seven years in the bottle.
