Our bodies are flutes with seven whirling chakras through which energy rises from root to crown. The earth also has a network of electric currents that is affected by human activity and reciprocally, it influences our individual and collective flows.
Whether consciously or unconsciously, all humans are sensitive to the frequencies emanating from cosmic and telluric energies.
We believe that wine can be an ambrosia of creativity when correctly balanced with lunar and telluric energies. J’NOON has been created to raise the spirits of the seeker by guiding the rising energies within.
J’NOON is an invitation to experience each chakra in balance. When the energy flows freely, we enjoy self-awareness.
When we, Jean-Charles Boisset, proprietor of Boisset Collection and Kapil Sekhri, proprietor of Fratelli Vineyards, met, an immediate and energetic connection was formed. We wanted to create history together in India, producing the finest wine from the Indian terroir for the world stage.
J’NOON is the culmination and realization of our passion and long-term vision for luxury fine wine from India. We have captured that feeling in a limited-edition collection of 2,400 bottles of red, white and sparkling wines.
The grapes were grown, nurtured, handpicked and carefully selected from the Fratelli estate vineyards in Akluj, Maharashtra located on the right bank of the Nira River. Skillfully created by Jean-Charles Boisset with the Fratelli team at its state-of-the-art winery, J’NOON and JCB No. 47 wines are both subtle and intense — just like India.
Jean-Charles Boisset is an acclaimed French vintner and the proprietor of Boisset Collection, a family-owned collection of more than 25 historic and unique wineries in the world’s most pre-eminent terroirs. Boisset properties are bound together by a common cause: authentic, terroir-driven wines in harmony with their history, their future and the land and people essential to their existence.
Kapil Sekhri is a young, dynamic industrialist from Delhi. While holidaying in Tuscany, Kapil was introduced to the world-famous Chianti wines. From that moment on, wine has been a passion of his and it was inevitable that, Fratelli Vineyards would be born and become a leading wine producer in India a decade later. After meeting Jean-Charles Boisset on his first visit to India, a vision and collaboration was born: to make wines in India of such quality and prestige that the world would take notice, sparking a new energy in the country’s fine wine culture.
60% Chardonnay, 40% Sauvignon Blanc
Combines green apple, white pear and stone fruit flavours of Chardonnay with fresh, vibrant lime, lemongrass, white pepper, jasmine and herbaceous fruit flavours of Sauvignon Blanc. This white wine places our palate between Pouilly-Fuisse and the white wines of the Northern Rhône Valley.
Cabernet Sauvignon 57.5%, Petit Verdot/ Marcelan 38.5%, Sangiovese 4%
The Cabernet Sauvignon contributes backbone as well as freshness to this exquisite blend. The Petit Verdot, Marselan and Sangiovese grapes paint the wine deep purple and provide luscious flavors of black fruits with structured tannins, a full body and a long, silky finish. It places us to the right bank of Bordeaux, with freshness, notes of spearmint and graphite against a backdrop of cedar, fresh tobacco.
Part of our collaboration with Jean-Claude Boisset, this single-vineyard sparkling wine, No. 47 was named in honor of India’s independence, during 1947.
The wine was barrel fermented in French oak barrels and then the secondary fermentation took place in the bottle, following the methode traditionnelle of sparkling winemaking. The wine spent a total of 24 months in barrel and bottle before release.
From the sandy soils in Motewadi, the wine has a prominent mineral note with aromas of green apple, tropical fruit and brioche; it is rich in the mouth with a great texture, yet dry and beautiful to pair with Indian cuisine.
