Nose with notes of white fruits, lemon curd, buttered bread... Mineral uprightness with great finesse and concentration, the fat and acidity are perfectly balanced. Certainly a favorite from our tasting, which will evolve with elegance over the years.
Julien Boiteau was born in 1977 in Saumur, with already a little wine background at birth, since his grandfather was a winegrower in Charente. He spent more than twenty years in Bourgueil, and naturally developed a passion for wine. Julien is a hard-working man, with great ambition and a know-how that no longer needs to be proven, since his determination led him to become the Head of Cultivation of the famous Château Margaux in Bordeaux, where he spent more than 20 years, until February 2021 when he became the Head of Thomas Hine Estate in Cognac. His appealt for winemaking and for his family region led him to found Maison Boiteau in 2014, an haute-couture micro-negociant business. He settled in Saint-Fort-sur-Gironde, located between Blaye and Royan. The ambition of the Maison is to create great wines from Charente terroirs, by meticulously choosing the plots and pampering them year-round. The bet has paid off, the result in the bottle is mind-blowing in complexity, definitely top-notch juices.
A fruity nose with notes of blackberry, morello cherry, plum, violet, a hint of spices. A soft, mellow and supple palate, the tannins are well integrated, a beautiful opportunity to rediscover the aromatic expression of this grape variety. Great lenght and freshness.
