Each JCB wine is known by a number. And each number has deep significance for Jean-Charles Boisset, the collection’s creator and namesake. N°22 represents the number eleven twice, and 11 is Jean-Charles’ lucky number. N°22 was chosen because this wine has twice the intensity, grandeur and charisma of most Pinot Noirs.
Our JCB Collectors membership guarantees access to our most-allocated JCB wines as well as our events, new endeavors and partnerships.Appearance:
This Pinot Noir is round, rich, and full-bodied from start to finish. The wine presents a deep, vibrant red in the glass.Aroma:
On the nose you are entranced by dark fruits and fragrant amber earthy notes.Palate:
Every sip glazes the palate with flavors of nuanced baking spices, intensely ripe plums and strawberries, and stewed cherries. The finish contains silky smooth minerality, and the lingering intensity of its structured tannins. A truly intense pinot noir!Vintage Notes:
For Jean-Charles Boisset, the supple texture of a great Pinot Noir makes drinking it an almost INTIMATE experience. Earthy and powerful, N°22 is a TUMULTUOUS riot of deep flavors. We think of it as insistent and INTENSE.
