Domaine Matrot Meursault 1er Cru Blagny 2017
Just before Christmas a client texted me from Puerto Rico with a photo of a terrific white Burgundy he was in the midst of enjoying, with a note that said “This is fantastic – can you get me some?” I texted back that I’d look, but white Burgundy with any kind of bottle age is hard to find, so I wasn’t too optimistic.
But lo and behold I called my rep and just a few cases were available! I bought a couple, one for the friend who provided the tip, and one for me to taste. Well, he was right! This beautiful Meursault not only shows the class and pedigree of the Premier Cru vineyard where it was born, but also the mineral, brilliant focus and energy of the fantastic 2017 vintage. Add to that more than a century of winemaking in the Matrot family and you have a hands down winner. Just entering its prime now, it has just begun to unfold and develop lovely complex notes that only come with time. A simply beautiful white Burgundy to drink now and for at least 5-6 years. With coming shortages (and price increases) from Burgundy due to severe frost damage, it will pay off well to stash some of this away for now and a rainy day in the future! Thanks for the tip Ron! Cheers!!
