Tasting Notes
Appearance: 

A dazzling clear color. 

Aroma: 

the JCB N° 8 has an expressive and rich nose. The wine opens onto buttery notes before evolving towards aromas of delicate vanilla, oak and honey. 

Palate: 

The attack is clean, the structure crisp and bright. The finish is round and sustained, with notes of toast and fresh almond.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

This perfectly BALANCED blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay honors the long history of producing sparkling wine in Burgundy. REBELLIOUS by nature, Jean-Charles is well respected for making SOPHISTICATED and elegant bubbles.
