Domaine Matrot Monthelie is a red wine made in Burgundy from Pinot Noir by Domaine Matrot.
Average age of vines: 60 years. Use of indigenous yeasts. Cold fermentation at 10°C for 3 to 6 days, followed by fermentation for 12 to 18 days. Pumping over or punching down is carried out twice a day, depending on the vintage. The wine is aged for 15 months in oak barrels, 20% of which are new barrels. Subsequently, the wine rests for 3 months in tanks before bottling. A lenticular filtration method is used. The winery is located in a village between Meursault and Volnay. Our vineyard, facing south-east, grows on a steep and shallow hillside, resulting in low yields.
Domaine Matrot is located in the village of Meursault in Burgundy, right in the heart of the Côte de Beaune. It was established in the early 20th century by Joseph and Marguerite Matrot, and has remained in the hands of the Matrot family ever since. Today, Domaine Matrot encompasses 23 hectares (equivalent to 56 acres) of vineyards stretching across Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Auxey-Duresses, Monthelie and Maranges. This includes plots in the renowned Premier Cru Charmes and Perrieres vineyards in Meursault. Since 2000, all of Domaine Matrot's vineyards have been farmed exclusively by organic methods, in a gradual process that began in 1976.
