Racy, rich and with true terroir expression, they attain heights only the best Meursault can achieve.

2017 Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault ($54.99)

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Bottled under screw cap, the 2017 Meursault offers a crisp, salty bouquet thats very much in the style of the vintage. White fruits, oysters shell, and crushed citrus notes all emerge from this juicy, medium-bodied, racy 2017 that has integrated acidity, beautiful fruit, and a great finish." (04/2019)

90 points Wine Spectator: "A lean, lime-infused style, with some reductive, sel gris and iodine notes playing off the stony mineral element. Fine length. Decant now, or cellar for a few months. Drink now through 2024." (06/2019)

2017 Domaine Thierry & Pascale Matrot Meursault "Les Chevalières" ($59.99)

93 points Wine Spectator: "This is round, defined by lively acidity and a briny, mineral note. Lemon cake and apple flavors are present, along with a touch of spice. Comes together nicely on the lingering finish. (BS)" (04/2019)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2017 Meursault Les Chevalierès is pure class and has a crystalline, rivetingly focused style that builds with time in the glass. White flowers, white peach, hints of citrus pith, and a beautiful salty, flinty minerality all emerge from the glass and it gains additional richness as it sits in the glass. Medium-bodied, elegant, and seamless on the palate, it shines for it purity of fruit and elegance. The only complaint is that is drops off slightly on the finish. Nevertheless, its a beautiful, beautiful wine." (04/2019)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Aromas of citrus oil, crushed chalk and subtle hazelnut cream introduce the 217 Meursault Les Chevalières, a medium to full-bodied, elegantly glossy wine with all the cut and tension that typically distinguishes this lieu-dit, with excellent depth at the core and a bright line of animating acidity, concluding with an intense finish. (WK)" (01/2019)

2017 Domaine Thierry et Pascale Matrot Meursault 1er Cru "Perrieres" ($119.99)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Coming from 56-year-old vines and fermented and aged in barrel, the 2017 Meursault Perrières 1er Cru is a gem in the lineup and certainly delivers the goods. Offering a vivid bouquet of white flowers and stone and citrus fruits, beautiful wet stone and flinty minerality, and some salty seaside notes, it hits the palate with medium-bodied richness, racy yet integrated acidity, and a crisp, lengthy finish. Its a brilliant, perfectly balanced Meursault that almost has a Chassagne-Montrachet-like purity and elegance." (04/2019)

95 points Wine Spectator: "Buried aromas of lime blossom, yuzu, citronella and stone mark this austere, steely white. The racy structure and tension are exciting, driving the long finish of fruit, mineral and spice. All the components are in the right proportions, but this needs a little time to integrate. (BS)" (04/2019)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrières is excellent, offering up notes of lemon oil, white flowers, crushed oyster shell and wet stones. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, ample and layered with tangy acids, a tensile and tight-knit core, excellent mid-palate amplitude and a long, mineral finish. This is one of the most promising young white Burgundies I've tasted from Matrot. (WK)" (01/2019)

91-93 points Vinous: "Pale, light yellow. Tighter on the nose than the Combettes, with aromas of peach, underripe pineapple and white pepper energized by crushed rock. Concentrated, sappy wine, conveying a thickness of texture without any impression of weight. Shows the most urgent mineral energy of these 2017s--and not a bit overripe. This wine, along with the Combettes and Quintessence, will get a slightly longer élevage than the rest, and will be bottled sometime between November and January, according to Elsa Matrot.
