Les Charmes is considered the archetype of Meursault wines. This appellation is the largest of the Meursault Premier Cru wines. Matrot owns four plots, of which 70% are located in Charmes Dessus. Les Charmes is a well-balanced wine with both the ampleness of the Charmes Dessous and the minerality and elegance of the Charmes Dessus. Charming in appearance, it is both powerful and full-bodied with a soft and full finish.
The grapes are hand harvested (date determined by ripeness levels), the entire grapes are then pressed in a pneumatic press. 24h of decanting are followed by settling and putting into barrels
Natural yeasts.Alcoholic fermentation is temperature controlled, complete malolactic fermentation. 15 months maturing on lees in oak barrels aged between 1 and 3 years. Final 3 month of maturing in steel vats to prepare wine for bottling.
A family domaine since 1835. Adele, Elsa and their parents Pascale and Thierry work together, ensuring the highest level of wine growing, winemaking, wine maturing and wine marketing.
Having obtained a degree in wine growing and oenology in Beaune, Pierre’s son Thierry Matrot born in 1955, continued his studies in business at Macon Davayé.
He joined the Domaine in 1976 and in 1983 onwards he took over the vinification. Together with his father, he continued to establish the reputation of Domaine Matrot and its wines.
In January 2000, Thierry and Pascale Matrot established and developed a limited liability company allowing them to buy and sell the harvest of the “Héritiers du Domaine Joseph Matrot” vineyards.
They made the domaine bigger as a result of Meursault, Auxey-Duresses and Burgundy Pinot Noir wines.
Adele and Elsa Matrot joined their parents, Thierry and Pascale, at the Domaine. In 2008, after obtaining a BTS in wine trade from Montpellier and a university degree in viticulture-oenology at the Université des Sciences in Dijon, Elsa joined the Domaine.
Adèle joined in 2010 after obtaining a Master’s Degree at Grenoble Ecole de Management, a Master’s Degree in wine trade at ESC Dijon and vocational training in viticulture and oenology at CFPPA Beaune. Their ambition is to keep the family Domaine alive. In 2012, they invested in a Manages Village plot in order to add another appellation to the Domaine’s wide range.
