N°3 Pinot Noir

N°3 Pinot Noir bottle

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°3 signifies two worlds uniting as one to create a sum greater than its parts: one plus one equals three! Inspired by the birth of twins that bear the imprint of the old world and the new, this wine celebrates the marriage of two wine worlds united to create a grander vision in which oceans may separate us, but wines unite us... JCB No°3 is the best of both worlds!

Coming from some top sites in Burgundy and in California, the 2016 Pinot Noir #3 is a beautiful effort that offers incredibly Burgundian aromas and flavors, yet is distinctly Californian on the palate. This beautiful effort gives up complex red fruits, forest floor, spice, and damp earth-like aromas. These carry over to the palate, where the wine is medium-bodied, seamless, and silky, with plenty of sweet California fruit balanced by terrific acidity, silky tannins, and a great finish. While I can struggle with these type of cuvées blended across very different regions, this is the real deal and is a brilliant Pinot Noir. It's going to evolve for 10-15 years.
