For Jean-Charles, the age of 11 was a magical time in life, an age of endless possibilities and burgeoning dreams. Inevitably, the number 11 became the number behind the wine, one of his favorite Pinot Noirs, and a reminder of an enchanting time in life.

To Jean-Charles this wine is spontaneous, graceful and romantic. N.11 greets you with intense and rich dark fruit and black pepper. The acidity is overly satisfying, and the density of fruit lingers long on the inviting palate.

Wine Advocate

The 2016 Pinot Noir No. 11 is medium ruby-purple with aromas of cranberry sauce, red apple skin, warm black cherries and savory hints of meat and pepper. Medium to full-bodied with concentrated ripe red fruits and earthy flavors, it has very fine, grainy tannins and mouthwatering acidity with a layered finish. 157 cases were made.
