Pinot Noir, to Jean-Charles Boisset, is a TIMELESS pleasure to always be enjoyed. A bit FLIRTATIOUS in the glass, our N° 6 Pinot Noir celebrates the SULTRY nature of this elegant varietal.
In honor of the very first JCB wine, a California Pinot Noir from the 2006 vintage, Nº 6 pays tribute to the inception of a grand collection of boutique wines destined to set a new standard epitomizing luxury and style.
