JCB No. 21 is a stunning bottle of Cremant (regional French fizz) which hails from Burgundy and is made with the same method as Champagne. It's an unusual blend of grapes, though it's based on Chardonnay and Pinot Noir which are the main grapes found in Champagne, together with Gamay and Aligote which grow so well in this region. All together they produce a sparkling wine with a lovely fresh and fruity nose with almond and white flower aromas. The palate is refreshing and crisp yet has an addictive richness from the lees ageing. This wine was made according to the traditional method, with the second fermentation taking place in bottle.

Jean-Charles Boisset was born into a winemaking family in Burgundy. Today, he is the proprietor, along with his sister, Nathalie, and parents Jean-Claude and Claudine Boisset, of a collection of more than twenty great producers from the world's pre-eminent wine producing regions. Created by Jean-Charles, the innovative JCB Collection brings together two worlds of winemaking - Old and New. Each wine in the collection is a limited edition, and is "named" with a number. These numbers relate to a wine style that Jean-Charles strives to achieve vintage to vintage, while also symbolizing important ideas, passions and moments in his life and wine career. 'N° 21' because 21 is the French government's 'department' number for the Côte d'Or.

The `JCB No. 21` Crémant de Bourgogne is an unusual blend of grapes, which are all sourced from parcels located across Burgundy. The vines grow on south-east facing slopes and are planted on clay and limestone soils. The Pinot Noir and Aligoté come from vineyards situated throughout the Côte d'Or. The Chardonnay and Gamay are sourced from the Mâconnais. All harvesting is done by hand. This wine was made according to the traditional method, with the second fermentation taking place in bottle. All four grape varieties were vinified separately in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Blending took place in April following the harvest with 20% reserve wine added to the final blend. The wine was bottled in May for the second fermentation, after which it aged on lees for a minimum of 12 months to add depth and complexity. Following disgorgement a light dosage of 10g/l was added before release.
