Meursault 2009, Domaine Matrot
Tasted at the domaine in early May, I consider the Matrot Meursault to be a benchmark for the village appellation. Presently not much showing on the nose (bearing in mind this was tasted at cellar temperature). But the palate has an impressive multi-layered structure which moves through different phases of white, yellow and citrus fruit. Mineral finish. Definitely still a benchmark for Meursault and will be interested to see if it develops a honey note which even the elegant Domaine Comte Lafon wines evolve towards. Worth noting that this is very good and it isn't cheap either!
