Thierry et Pascale Matrot Bourgogne Chardonnay 2017
Pierre Matrot, grandson of the founder, produces some of the better know Meursault and Puligny-Motrachet in Burgundy
His Bourgogne Chardonnay is born from 30 years old vineyards near the commune of Meursault. After spontaneous fermentation in oak fudres for about 8 weeks, this wine rests with its fine lees and battonage will be used depending on the character of the vintage. The wines of Domaine Matrot must necessarily carry out malolactic fermentation in order to reduce the acid power. The wine is organically produced.
This bourgogne way out-performs for the price and is one of the best examples of an entry level white Burgundy.
The grapes for this Chardonnay are picked near the appellation of Meursault. It is fruity and round and can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to charcuterie, chicken, and grilled fish.
