Nº 22

Pinot Noir
Description
  • INTIMATE​
  • TUMULTUOUS
  • INTENSE

Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. N°22 represents the number eleven twice, and 11 is Jean-Charles’ lucky number. N°22 was chosen because this wine has twice the intensity, grandeur and charisma of most Pinot Noirs.

Tasting Notes
Aroma: 

Fermented in open-top, wooden fermenters with hand punch downs, this Pinot Noir is round and rich from start to finish. The wine presents a deep, rich, vibrant red in the glass. 

 

Palate: 

On the nose you are entranced by dark fruits and amber which continue on the palate as nuances of heady spices glaze with every sip; the finish is big and full-bodied.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

For Jean-Charles Boisset, the supple texture of a great Pinot Noir makes drinking it an almost INTIMATE experience. Earthy and powerful, N°22 is a TUMULTUOUS riot of deep flavors. We think of it as insistent and INTENSE.
