Owned and managed by the new generation, Matrot is producing classic wines with a few modern changes such as the stelvin closure (screwcap!) for their ‘everyday’ white here, which is made from de-classified Meursault. We love the antique, traditional label of the house. 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, with an average age of vines at 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 essence of the soil. In order to accomplish this goal, he relies upon his wine making philosophy: “wine is made in the vineyards – and far less than people think, in the cellar." 100% estate-bottling has been practiced at the domaine since Thierry’s grandfather, Joseph Matrot, took it over in 1908.

In their article '
Summer’s Winners: 20 Wines for $20' The New York Times reported:

'The white Burgundy section of the chardonnay galaxy emphasizes texture and stony mineral flavors over scads of fruit. Matrot is a textbook example of a basic Bourgogne Blanc, creamy yet zesty and refreshing, not especially substantial yet with enough intrigue to invite repeated sips in search of the mysterious flavors at the heart of good white Burgundy.'
