Nº 1 1.5L
Nº 1 signifies Jean-Charles’ concept of the penultimate wine that embraces the power of the Napa Valley combined with the elegance associated with Jean-Charles’ native Burgundy. It is the first time, as he hails from Pinot Noir country, that he has delved into a Cabernet Sauvignon that bears his signature style. There can only ever be one Nº 1.
For Jean-Charles Boisset, the Nº 1 cabernet sauvignon must not only age well into the future, it must be VOLUPTUOUS in the present. It must have a commanding structure, yet have flavors that are OPULENT. But above all, Nº 1 must always have a dramatic personality. It is never tamed and predictable. Nº 1 is INCORRIGIBLE.
JCB Nº 1 is not eligible for any additional discounts or promotions.
