Marthe Henry Boillot Meursault 'Sous la Velle'

Marthe Henry Boillot Meursault 'Sous la Velle'


Country: France

Region: Burgundy

Grapes: Chardonnay

Vintage: 2020

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.

This is Marthe's top wine, an absolutely stunning example of village Meursault, in this case exclusively from old vines in the Sous la Velle lieu-dit. It offers concentrated notes of ripe, fleshy fruit such as white peach and apricot. There’s good weight on the attack and a full-bodied palate which delivers a round, airy texture with flavours of golden apple, butter and sweet spices culminating in an elegant, silky finish.
