Domaine Matrot Meursault 1er Cru 'Les Perrières' 2015

Chablis, France.  Bright yellow. Musky reduction to the fruit-driven aromas of pineapple, lemon and orange zest. Suave and fine-grained on the palate, with emerging minerality and lemony citricity giving the wine dynamism and structure despite its modest acidity. More classic and gripping than the Puligny-Montrachet La Quintessence, finishing with a touch of bitter lemon and excellent length and lift...

Domaine Matrot Puligny-Montrachet 1er Cru 'Les Combettes' 2015

Chablis, France.  Medium yellow. Vibrant aromas of fresh peach, spices and white pepper. The least obviously 2015 in style to this point in my tasting, with lovely lemony cut intensifying the rich, smooth middle palate. Finishes savory, tactile & long, with a refreshing bracing quality. This almost tastes like it's from another vintage. Matrot replanted the upper half of this vineyard three years ago but the wine does not yet include the new young vines. He plans to wait a while to replant the lower part of his holding, noting that these millerandé vines contributed more acidity to the 2015...

Domaine Matrot St Aubin 1er Cru Fleurs de Côteaux 2015

Chablis, France.  This is relatively firmly reduced so again, a thorough aeration is called for if you're going to drink one immediately. The medium weight flavors possess a more refined mouth feel, indeed it could accurately be described as sleek, all wrapped in a rich but energetic and refreshing finish where a hint of bitter lemon emerges. This should mature quickly yet be capable of holding well...
