Nº 76

SKU: JCH76193

Voluptuous whites are richer in texture, thanks to riper fruit. Most are dry wines that feature the added flavor complexity of new oak barrel use, but a handful are lusciously-sweet late-harvested dessert wines.

FOOD PAIRING: Ideally suited to richer dishes and cooked foods, like GRILLED OR FRIED SEAFOOD, POULTRY & WHITE MEATS, plus dishes featuring BUTTER, ONIONS or NUTS.


N° 76 recalls 1976, the year a young Jean-Charles had his first experience of phenomenal wines and was thus ushered into the exciting, multidimensional world of flavor. 1976 was also the year of the famous tasting in Paris that put California wines on the international map.

For Jean-Charles Boisset, California chardonnays often possess an underlying SPICY quality, the hallmark of grapes fermented and aged in especially fine new oak barrels. While ripe grapes give this wine LUSCIOUS flavor, there’s an unmistakable restraint to N° 76 which marks it as undeniably ELEGANT.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 JCB N° 76 Chardonnay opens with a bouquet of lemon, peach, and delicate baking spices. 


On the palate, this fresh and vivid Chardonnay is exploding with flavors of fresh tangerine and pear, layered by hints of crisp apple and mineral. This is a full-bodied Chardonnay with a buttery and silky mid-palate that leads to a lengthy and persistent finish.

Vintage Notes: 

This Chardonnay explodes right out of the glass. This wine is layered, integrated and well balanced with a bright, yet creamy long finish.
