Volnay 1er Cru Les Santenots, Domaine Matrot, 2009 $470.00

Nicola's Tasting Note:

Deep black red, intense, with a tightly-fruited nose of black fruits and some creme patissier, complex and serious, leading to a tightly focused plate of creamy black fruits, sweet, dense and supple with substantial tannins masked by the fruit. Rich, intense and long, this is gorgeous and for the future.

Grower Information: Based in Meursault but with vineyards in Puligny, Volnay, Auxey Duresses and Monthélie, Thierry Matrot is always understated, both in his attitude and his wines. Thierry believes that fine wine is made in the vineyard and good fruit therefore only requires translating in the cellar. All his wines see some time in oak, around 30% of which is new, however as he does not like the overt new wood flavours on his top wines these barrels are used briefly for his Bourgogne Chardonnay to take out the really strong flavours. Matrot’s red wines show astonishing purity of fruit and are not blockbusters but extraordinarily elegant expressions of Pinot Noir: pale in colour, gorgeously perfumed, the top wines from Volnay and Blagny will evolve and improve for some 10 years or more. Meursault rouge is a deliciously fresh wine for drinking in the 2-4 year span, whilst the Auxey-Duresses rouge requires around 5-8 years to show its best.
