Jean-Charles Boisset was born into the world of wine in the village of Vougeot, Burgundy, France. His lifelong passion for wine began as a child, as he grew up above the cellars and within view of the centuries-old vineyards of Château du Clos de Vougeot, the epicenter and birthplace of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
Jean-Charles continued to grow the Boisset Collection with the introduction of JCB tasting lounges in St. Helena (2011); at The Ritz-Carlton, San Francisco (2015); Yountville (2016), including the épicerie Atelier Fine Foods; the JCB Salon Privé in Yountville (2017); and in Healdsburg (2018). Jean-Charles continued his legacy of pioneering innovations in 2018 with the introduction of JCB Spirits, luxury vodkas and gin distilled from Burgundy wine made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay that includes the first-ever caviar-infused and truffle-infused vodkas.
In 2015 Jean-Charles and Raymond Vineyards partnered with Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony and Golden Globe-award winning singer, songwriter, humanitarian and philanthropist John Legend to create the LVE: Legend Vineyard Exclusive collection of wines, which number six and counting. As a world-renowned singer, songwriter and performer, John Legend’s passion for inspiring memorable moments led him to become devoted to another art form, that of winemaking. The partnership has developed into a friendship, with Jean-Charles and John frequently attending each other’s events, including several private concerts given by John both in Napa Valley and the Los Angeles area.
Jean-Charles has expanded from the world of wine and spirits to include a lifestyle vision; he has created namesake collections for jewelry, perfume and the JCB Passion Collection by Baccarat — the first glassware line the historic French crystal company has ever done with a vintner. In addition, the JCB offerings include home accessories that exemplify the JCB world of hospitality and entertaining. As a natural extension of his growing influence in the lifestyle realm, in June 2019 Senses by JCB, a fashion and fragrance boutique and medi-spa debuted in the JCB Village in Yountville. Senses showcases high-profile luxury fashion, accessories and skincare products from around the world, with highlights including a selection of vintage handbags as well as an osmologue machine that enables guests to blend custom scents.
