Critic Reviews
95 points, Blue Lifestyle
“Rich, mellow ruby color, bright cherry nose, a lovely combination of smooth, ripe berry fruit on a platform of racy, crisp acidity; juicy, fresh and long.”

“Catch this wine young, while its high-toned raspberry flavors are fresh and beautifully perfumed with scents of spring flowers. It’s simple, but it has a long and airy view through the finish, like a deep breath of fresh air at the edge of the Grand Canyon.”

“Notes of sweet red cherries, herbs and dried flowers introduce the 2017 Blagny Premier Cru La Pièce Sous Le Bois, a medium-bodied, succulent wine with a tangy core of fruit, light but chalky tannins and a mouthwatering finish. From a high altitude, stony site, this is a singular Côte de Beaune bottling that will appeal to purists who love tensile, precise reds.”

“This too is really quite pretty with its more exotic nose where notes of mandarin orange, passion fruit and white peachinflected aromas can be found. There is more volume if less minerality on the medium-bodied flavors that once again are not especially complex though I like the sneaky good length. This may well develop more depth with a few years in bottle and that’s what I would suggest doing.”

About The Winery
Joseph Matrot (1881-1963), the grandson of owners of a family wine estate in Puligny-Montrachet and Blagny, lived with his wife, Marguerite Amoignon, and their three children at Château d'Evelle. Marguerite also owned a beautiful wine estate in Meursault. In 1914, they took up residence in Marguerite's family home, which is today the seat of Domaine Matrot, and decided to develop and extend the estate. Over the course of generations, Domaine Matrot continued to expand with the addition of new vineyard holdings, and in 2000 began harvesting the vineyards organically. Today, sisters Adèle and Elsa Matrot are in charge of the management and winemaking of the Domaine, ensuring that the family-run domaine will be in good hands for many years to come. Observing careful cultivation and vinification techniques, Domaine Matrot wines offer purity of fruit and terroir-driven character.
