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 vines: 30 years. The wine is fermented for 8-10 weeks in oak barrels - 15 to 20% of which are new. Maturing on the lees for 11 months.
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. A great wine to enjoy with friends.
