Boisset's Taste of Terroir Opening


For his entire career Jean-Charles Boisset has always had a vision beyond the day-to-day in the wine business. Whether it's converting the DeLoach Vineyards property he bought in 2004 to a biodynamic farm and vineyard, challenging the industry to come up with lower carbon footprint packaging, or in the case of his newest endeavor, bringing a new twist to the wine country tasting room, Jean Charles has defied convention yet again. His Boisset Taste of Terroir salon on the square in Healdsburg, CA invites the visitor to explore the nuances of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with three dozen selections from his Burgundian portfolio including Domaine de la Vougeraie, Bouchard Aine & Fils, Jean-Claude Boisset and Louis Boillot as well as DeLoach Vineyards and his eponymous series, JCB. Nine different themed flights invite the curious to better understand the subtleties of terroir and the art of blending, and his unique barrel to barrel offerings of vineyard designate Pinot Noirs from DeLoach demonstrate a back to the future technology. The design of the salon is reminiscent of a left bank boutique, cozy, elegant, inviting, so make sure it's on your itinerary the next time you're headed to Healdsburg, it's not to be missed. Read more
