Thierry et Pascale Matrot Bourgogne Blanc 2009

When you think of the great wines of the world a lot of them come from France.  As an entry level wine many in Australia believe that the quality in these Burgundy wines is lacking.  This wine kicks that to the curb with gusto.

I'm reminded of the kids movie "Shrek" staring Eddie Murphy and Mike Myers when Shrek is talking about Ogres being like onions as this wine has so many layers. This wine starts out gently with grapefruit and mixed nuts followed by a hint of cinnamon.  When you come back the palate has built weight and flavours of gun flint and sea-salt rolled in melon joining the fro. I'm left with a mouthwatering acidity flowing from my lips and a feeling of joy running over me.
