Vintage Notes: 

What The Number 11 Signifies: For Jean-Charles, the age of 11 was a magical time in life, an age of endless possibilities and burgeoning dreams. Inevitably, the number 11 became the number behind the wine, one of his favorite Pinot Noirs, and a reminder of an enchanting time in life.
