“Pascalle and Thierry Matrot perpetuate the traditions of Thierry’s grandfather, with small evolutions due to technology improvements.”
The soils of the Côte de Beaune are covered with limestone scree coming from the top of the hill, red silts deposited in the glacial era, and rocks resulting from the alteration of the underlying geological strata. Brown limestone and stony soils characterise the southern part of the Côte d'Or. At the top of slope, the soils are lean, very limestone, they enrich themselves in clay going down. There are three different hillsides: those of the Corton mountain, those of the Côte des Blancs and those of Chassagne, Santenay and Maranges.
History / Ethos
Domaine Matrot is a family estate in Meursault, now run by the third generation of winemaker, Thierry Matrot, with his wife Pascalle. Very little has changed since Thierry’s grandfather created the domaine. The winemaking techniques and work in the vineyard remain more or less the same. At Domaine Matrot, there are no revolution, just evolution. They key is to observe and learn from nature and climate variation throughout the years. Domaine Matrot is one of the few to produce a Red wine called Blagny premier cru La Piece sous le Bois, one of Burgundy's little peculiarities.
