For Jean-Charles Boisset, the lemon and tropical aromas of this Chardonnay are especially ALLURING, calling the taster back over and over again. The lush, créme-brulée like texture is rich, yet the wine has an elegance that makes it quite EPHEMERAL. Finally, the long, ripe finish is fruity and delicious. It makes you remarkably INSATIABLE.
Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. No. 81 refers to the excitement Jean-Charles felt in 1981 when he came to California from Burgundy for the first time. For that trip, he was inspired to make an elegant chardonnay evocative of the white Burgundies he had grown up with yet undeniably of California provenance.
