Adèle and Elsa Matrot are now at the helm of this family-owned estate, having taken over from their highly respected father Thierry Matrot, who had made the wines here for over three decades. Adèle describes 2017 as solaire (ripe, with fruit presence), but without heaviness. This has the driving acidity of Puligny, with some plush, rounded cushioning. Lots of verve and linear tension here – this will age brilliantly. Some nutty complexity but there is no new oak. An admirably honest translation of Puligny, this is one of the highlights of the domaine.
THE WINE ADVOCATE Rating: 92 points - Drink Date: 2020 - 2035 - "A promising bottle in the making, unfurling in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of mandarin oil, crisp peach and green orchard fruit. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny and layered, with a more delicate and less fleshy profile than the Meursault Charmes, concluding with a pure and chalky finish. It's a lovely rendition of Les Chalumaux."
