Marthe Henry Boillot Maranges Rouge
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Though originally from Burgundy, Marthe Henry Boillot spent most of her life working as a journalist in Paris before returning home in 2013. After studying winemaking at Le Viti in Beaune and gaining practical experience at Domaine Rougeot in Meursault, Marthe set up on her own in 2017, taking over the small cellar in Meursault of her esteemed winemaking grandfather Pierre Boillot.
This is Marthe's sublime Maranges made from organic Pinot Noir grapes grown in clay limestone. Whole bunches of grapes are harvested whole and vinified in tank with daily pump overs for approximately two weeks. Élevage in 228L barrels, all of which is of old oak. No racking during the whole 18 months of ageing, only once a month prior to bottling.
