Package Details

What if you could capture style and hold it in the bottle? What if that uncompromising personality—audacious, unique, mysterious, passionate, subtle—was revealed from one bottle to another by a distinct number, until it was all held in a limited collection of wines? This is the spirit of JCB, a collection of rare numbered wines composed by Jean-Charles Boisset. Honoring centuries of Burgundian family tradition and the graceful exploration of sophisticated terroir, the Boisset Collection unites the Old and New Worlds of wine with its Franco-American spirit and wineries on two continents. It is one of the world’s leading family-owned luxury fine wine companies.

From this great foundation of historical, pioneering wineries in France and California, Jean-Charles Boisset joins us aboard our stylishly restored Private Reserve Pullman rail car for an evening of gourmet culinary creations paired with distinctive wines. During this unforgettable train journey through the Napa Valley, discover Jean-Charles’ vision of a wine world centered on family, passion, history, innovation, and a commitment to fine wines—all combined with a dedication to sustainable winegrowing and a Franco-American spirit.

Meet the Maker

Born in Burgundy into the world of wine, vintner and proprietor Jean-Charles Boisset leads his family collection of wineries in France and California with a passionate and dynamic commitment to fine wine, history, quality, and a deep respect for the environment. He venerates and celebrates the joie de vivre of the wine world (proclaiming wine the Elixir of Mother Nature) and has implemented organic and biodynamic farming at all of the family’s estate vineyards in Burgundy and California.

With numerous accolades to his name—including Decanter magazine’s “Power List” of the 50 most important people in the wine world each year of its publication since 2007—Jean-Charles’ contagious enthusiasm captivates guests, while his vision of wine celebrates the elixir as the catalyst of a wholly encompassing lifestyle.
