In January 2000, Thierry and Pascale Matrot established and developed a limited liability company allowing them to buy and sell the harvest of the vineyards of “Héritiers du Domaine Joseph Matrot”.
Thierry has been running the estates SCE Pierre Matrot and Héritiers du Domaine Joseph Matrot for many years. He ensures constantly high quality regarding all stages of the winemaking process: cultivation of the vines, vinification, maturing the wines and selling them.
Average age of the vines: 30 years. Maturing for 11 months in oak barrels, 10 to 20 % of which are new.
The Blagny “La pièce sous le Bois” Premier Cru, just like its neighbour Meursault-Blagny Premier Cru Blanc, is strongly marked by its terroir. It is one of very few appellations in the Côte de Beaune where Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grow happily side by side on the same parcel.
During the first four years the wine offers a complex range of aromas with dark fruits such as blueberries and blackberries followed by spicy notes. After five to seven years of aging, aromas of undergrowth develop. An ideal accompaniment to pigeon, duck, winged game and meat in reduced sauces.
