2008: a vintage full of surprises

“2008 was an incredibly complicated vintage. On September 10 I didn’t think I would have a harvest. There was no spring, no summer and most of our vines were violently damaged by hail.

The wines were also complicated and surprising while maturing in barrel: the malolactic fermentation was very long.

However, the wines have a nice structure. The whites are rich with citrus aromas and a good length. The reds are very characteristics of Pinot Noir with aromas of red currant and discreet tannins.” Thierry Matrot.

The vintage 2007 for the Domaine Matrot

« 2007 is a classic vintage as I like. The cool September weather gave good levels of tartaric acidity with aromas of ripe fruit.  

The wines have a good structure and their finishes are very pure. You can wait six to eight years for the top crus, or you can drink them young with Mediterranean cuisines based on tomato, herbs and vegetables, or with curries-dynamic cuisines that need invigorating wines.”  Thierry Matrot.

Tuesday, 17 March 2009 – Tasting
Meursault 2004 ½ bottle
Blind comparison tasting of bottles closed with natural cork, screw-cap and Guala seals.
Bottled end of July 2005

Natural cork:
A round, rich and mineral bouquet. Elegant and slightly reduced on the palate; then dominant notes of fresh fruits, citrus fruits and honey. A very dynamic finish with notes of lime.

Screw-cap seal:
Slightly reduced in the nose, mineral and fruity. Fresh and rich on the palate with notes of honey and fern as well as hints of citrus fruits and lime. Very young.

Guala seal :
A slightly developed, yet tight bouquet. A round wine on the palate with notes of honey. This pleasant evolution lacks some freshness and finishes off with aromas of grapefruit.

Conclusion :
CEach of these three wines presents a different evolution. My preference: natural cork followed by the screw-cap seal. The synthetic Guala seal confers a certain austerity to the style of the wine. Just one reproach: the screw-cap seal slows down the evolution of the wine, but is this really a problem in the light of premature oxidation? We will carry out annual tastings until the samples are used up (6 years) … to be continued …
