No 22 represents the number eleven twice, and 11 is Jean-Charles lucky number. No 22 was chosen because this wine has twice the intensity, grandeur and charisma of most Pinot Noirs.

Pale ruby colored with a hint of purple, the 2014 Pinot Noir No. 22 offers a gorgeous perfume of red roses and violets over a core of wild strawberries, raspberries and Provence herbs with a touch of underbrush. The medium-bodied palate delivers a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berry flavors framed by very fine tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing with great depth and persistence.
