| From The Wines of Burgundy
By Clive Coates, M.W.
For legal and inheritance reasons there are two domaines here, though everything is made by Thierry Matrot and his wife Pascale. Sometimes theirs is labeled as Pierre Matrot, Thierry's father: this includes all the Blagny, red and white. The larger remainder, Joseph Matrot, is bought by Thierry and Pascale and is now sold under their label: this includes all the Combettes. Other wines can have either label. But it is all the same wine.
Thierry et Pascale Matrot
