The origins of the winery date back to the mid-19th century and floated on the vineyards of the Amoignon family. The name Amoignon was exchanged for Matrot during the First World War because that name had since been married. Thierry and Pascale Matrot are now in charge and both of their daughters also work in the company. Domaine Matrot produces a rich range of Burgundy wines from the Cote de Beaune, both white and red and from basic wines to premier cru wines.

The MEURSAULT-CHARMES 1ER CRU is of course a 100% Chardonnay from the Meursault appellation and from the famous Charmes Premier Cru vineyard. Les Charmes is considered the archetype of Meursault wines. This appellation is the largest of the Meursault Premier Cru wines. Matrot owns four plots, 70% of which are located in Charmes Dessus. The grapes are harvested by hand with natural yeasts. The whole bunches are pressed and then left to rest for 24 hours, followed by settling and pouring into barrels. The wine ferments in temperature-controlled barrels and undergoes complete malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged for 15 months on its lees in oak barrels between 1 and 3 years old and then a further 3 months of aging in steel barrels to prepare the wine for bottling.

Les Charmes is a very well balanced wine with both the fullness of the Charmes and the minerality and elegance of the Charmes. Charming on the inside but powerful on the palate with a soft and full finish. The Matrot Meursault Charms Premier Cru has a lively fresh bouquet with citrus notes of yellow plums with a mix of flint and pure fruit. The aromas are characteristic of clay-limestone soils and in particular the subsoil of limestone rocks. The palate is well defined with good weight with notes of slivered almonds, a hint of ginger and some vanilla and brioche in the finish.
