Vino della Settimana – 2003 Mersault Blagny “La pièce sous le Bois”, by Domaine Matrot

(reposting tasting notes only as I by mistake deleted the entire blog post.  But the wine is so good, it deserves to be included here anyways, even in a very shortened format)

Drunk out of the wrong glass, at the wrong place (a shady Four Points by Sheraton), it was still good enough to win this week’s honor.  A cult wine with a great following, Pierre and his father, Thierry Matrot, shows they can make more than great white burgundies.  Still tons of dark fruit aromas left, and sweetish spices as well.  But with added minerality and forest floor. Very long.  I can understand why this wine has a following – the wine has got a character of its own.
