Marie-Jeanne

Designation for an oversized bottle with a volume of 2.25 litres or the content of three normal bottles with 0.75 litres, which is only rarely used today. The name is derived from Marie-Jeanne Ozeanne (1734-1786), who was one of the most famous wine bottle engravers of her time. This size, which is rarely used today, can still be found on old Bordeaux bottles until the early 1970s. The picture shows a bottle of Château Cheval Blanc vintage 1947 The bottle format Tregnum and the hollow measure Tappit hen also include 2.25 litres. See also under bottles and wine containers.
