Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot

Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot

Domaine Thierry & Pascale, erstwhile known as Domaine Pierre Matrot, was established in 1914 by Joseph Matrot in the appellation of Meursault . His son Pierre took the reins in 1937 and expanded the vineyards further. Thierry, Pierre's son, took over the estate in 1976.

Until very recently one might find the names of Thierry’s father, Pierre, or grandfather, Joseph on the label but from 2009 all the wines, including older stocks, leaving the cellars will come under the name of Thierry and his wife Pascale, who are likely to be joined by two of their three daughters in the business shortly. The Matrots originally began as negociants at Evelle, in the Hautes Côtes, but Joseph moved to Meursault and began domaine bottling immediately after the First World War.

Everything is thought out chez Thierry but he does not necessarily march to the same drumbeat as his neighbours. The vineyards have been farmed organically since 2000 though are not certified as such. The whites are pressed, not left to settle unless there is a doubt about the quality of the lees, then undergo a long slow fermentation in barrels, without any new oak except for a small cuvée of Puligny-Montrachet 1er cru ‘Quintessence’ and the Bourgogne Blanc – 100% new oak in order to season the barrels in preparation for the following year’s Meursault or Meursault 1er Cru! The other lesser whites may also see some new oak for the same reason. The wines are bottled just before the next harvest.

The reds are attractive wines made without stalks, though otherwise the only rule is to avoid excessive crop levels. fermentation and maceration may be anything from 3 to 25 days, depending on the nature of the raw material in a given year and vineyard.
