    "The 2019 Meursault Villages comes from 12 separate parcels on both the flat and sloped parts of the appellation. The fragrant bouquet features lime, citrus peel and light orange blossom scents. The palate is well balanced with crisp orange zest and mandarin notes, moderate depth and a slightly waxy texture toward the finish. Again, it just lacks a little persistence on the aftertaste, but there is plenty of freshness and what you might call "guts."

Locations

France

Wine is being produced throughout France and has been done for over 2,500 years with certain Châteaux dating their history back to Roman times, around 6th Century BC. Ranking second in the world in per-capita consumption and first in total production quantity. More so than the overall quantity of wine is the quantity of truly great wines coming out of France makes the nation the envy of wine-making nations worldwide.

Two concepts pivotal to the higher end French wines, in particular, are the idea of 'terroir' and the Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée (AOC) system. Terroir refers to the way the geography, geology and climate find their way into the glass, telling a story of the origin of the wine. The AOC was set up in 1935 and has the primary goal of protecting the authenticity of the wines and the livelihoods of the producers. Appellation rules strictly define which varieties of grapes and winemaking practices are approved for classification in each of France's several hundred geographically defined appellations, which can cover entire regions, individual villages or in some cases, like in Burgundy even specific vineyards.

Classic wine regions in France include Champagne (home of Champagne), Burgundy (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay), Bordeaux (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Petit Verdot), Alsace (Aromatic varietals), Loire Valley (Chenin Blanc, Crémant) and the Rhône Valley (Syrah, Grenache Mourvedre)

The Bordeaux classification of 1855 is still in use, as is the Sauternes and Barsac Classification of the same year. Wines from certain regions can be bought En Primeur, which is when the wine is sold prior to it being bottled.

Burgundy

Burgundy is undoubtedly the home of the finest Pinot Noir and Chardonnays in the world, where vineyards, or Domaines have been producing wines for over 2000 years. Burgundy is located in the North-east of France, an hours drive from Lyon and 2 hours from Paris. With over 100 appellations, or sub-regions (more than any other wine region) Burgundy is known for being the most terroir-oriented region in the World. The finest red wines of Burgundy are found in the Côte d'Or, a string of villages including Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Morey St Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Vougeot, Vosne-Romanée and Nuits-St Georges.

There are flavours present in great Burgundys that are the envy of Pinot Noir producers worldwide. The elusive peacocks tail finish that goes on and on, and the pretty-elegance backed by Burgundy muscle is the goal of winemakers around the globe. The main levels in the Burgundy classifications, in descending order of quality, are: Grand crus, Premier crus, village appellations, and finally regional appellations. For the Chablis wines, a similar hierarchy of Grand Cru, Premier Cru and Village wines is used, plus Petit Chablis as a level below Village Chablis.

Meursault

This AOC in Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, is renowned as one of the most reliably excellent sources of Chardonnay in the world (though there are also small amounts of Pinot Noir grown). There are more top producers here than anywhere else in Côte-d'Or, despite there not being any Grand Cru vineyards in the AOC. It's the incredible proliferation of high-quality Premier Cru and commune-level wine that makes this region so popular.

Meursault Chardonnay is typically oaken in style, and is often described as having rich, buttery notes that are evidence of a classic Burgundy terroir.

About the brand Domaine Matrot

“Focused and direct and very good for the price.” That's the Bourgogne Blanc. It’s red counterpart is an “excellent example of generic burgundy – has lively fruit, fine tannins and unexpected length, all at a good price.” Those particular notes from Jancis Robinson’s faithful sidekick Julia Harding MW tell part of the story. We were unashamedly, and somewhat unhopefully, searching for that ever-elusive holy grail: great-value burgundy.

But as we say, just part of the story. We were striving to find Meursault. Not the village but the essence – flavour, gunflint, silk and seduction. And, yes, we wanted more. We yearned for brilliance. And that’s what we found, as Burghound’s evocation of the Perrières attests: “Like several of the wines in the range in 2014 this is impressively dense with a focused power to the chiselled medium weight flavours that also coat the palate with sap, all wrapped in a classy, dry and hugely long finale. This is pretty much textbook Perrières that should amply reward extended cellaring. Bravo!”

Bravo indeed! Domaine Matrot is a sixth-generation family estate with exceptional holdings in the Côte de Beaune, notably six hectares of village-designated plots in their home commune, plus four hectares of premier cru vineyards in Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet.
