Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Maranges VV 2015 Product #32846 (In Stock)
Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Maranges VV 2015 Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Maranges VV 2015

From the southernmost vineyards in the Cote de Beaune, the Matrot family have crafted a powerful, rich, and nicely ripe Pinot Noir in the great 2015 harvest. The vines in this east-facing vineyard are 50-80 years old and always give a wine of fleshy body, dark fruit, and fine concentration.  In 2015, the wine opens with bold aromas of red currant, black cherry and generous accents of fresh earth and spice.  It's richly textured but retains excellent energy behind its ripe fruit, earth, and spicy oak flavors.  Delicious right now (a great match for beef or even lamb!), it will smooth out nicely over the next couple of years and be delicious through 2025 at least.

Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Meursault Rouge 2014 Product #31808 (In Stock)
Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Meursault Rouge 2014 Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Meursault Rouge 2014

Less than 5% of Meursalut's vineyard area is planted to Pinot Noir, and almost all of that lies within the 1er Cru vineyards of Santenots and gets labeled Volnay.  This is from a small Pinot vineyard just outside on soils higher in clay than Chardonnay likes (but perfect for Pinot).  Fruit from 30+ year-old vines is partially crushed with about one-third the berries left intact in the fermenter.  The whole berries plus very gentle winemaking accentuates the fruit aromas and flavors here, although there's plenty of earthy spice to enjoy, too. Very fine with meaty fish as well as poultry.

"Spicy cherry fruit. Very spicy and a touch earthy on the palate. Halfway between creamy and chewy. Rounded and fresh at the same time. Lots of pleasure if not great finesse."  JancisRobinson.com 16/20 points

"A more restrained though not mute nose displays notes of cool red and dark berry aromas that exhibits hints of forest floor, earth and violet. There is good volume to the rich, seductive and caressing medium-bodied flavors that possess a sleek and vibrant mouth feel, all wrapped in a lingering if slightly less complex finale."

Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Volney Santenots 1er 2015 Product #32845 (In Stock)
Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Volney Santenots 1er 2015 Dom Thierry Et Pascale Matrot Volney Santenots 1er 2015

Worth tasting now, better from 2020 and best from 2025. Limited.

"A markedly spicy and floral nose reveals notes of violet, lilac, sandalwood, Asian-style tea and black raspberry scents. The notably finer but also bigger and richer flavors exhibit ample minerality on the detailed, driving and distinctly powerful finish. This is more imposingly scaled than it usually is and is going to require at least some cellar time to more completely harmonize and realize its full potential. Well worth checking out. Sweet Spot Outstanding."Allen Meadows 92 points
