Wine Review: JCB #76 Chardonnay

If you are looking to understand what is meant by an “elegant” wine, then the JCB #76 Chardonnay is what you are looking for.  Aged for 10 months in French oak and new oak barrels, this wine packs a smooth fruit-forward punch with lots of spice on the finish.  I expected a hefty price tag for such a fine selection, but was presently surprised to see that it retails for $35.00.  Its still above my everyday wine price tag, but definitely worth having around.

As with all JCB wines, the number marks a significant meaning in proprietor, Jean-Charles Boisset’s life.  The number 76 represents the year in which Jean-Charles had his first experience with great wine.  Can you tell me what significant moment in wine history also happened in 1976?
