Domaine Matrot Meursault-Blagny Premier Cru 2017 Review

Coming from the higher elevations of this region this wine is more mineral-driven than others from these slopes on stony soil. The result is an elegant wine with racy acidity that's softened by a touch of Malolactic Conversion (the process in winemaking that converts harsher acids to the creamy butter of lactic acid). Candied pears and apples abound, with flitting aromas of soft vanilla. The palate has a prominent grip from the oak tannins and will hold up to a meal of herbed and grilled poultry, even a rotisserie from the store.
