Mahārāshtra, maharashtra India

J‘NOON is a joint venture between Kapil Sekhri of Fratelli wines and Jean-Charles Boisset. The name is a French take on the Urdu word ‘Junoon’, which means ‘passion’. The wines are selected from the Fratelli vineyards in Akluj (Mahārāshtra), on the right bank of the Nira River about 170 kilometres south of Pune.

The still wines come from vineyards situated at 650 metres above sea level in Garwar. The cool nights ensure the grapes retain perfume and acidity, while the sandy soils with a high rock content drain well and are low in nutrients, ensuring highly concentrated fruit. The white is a blend of 60% Chardonnay and 40% Sauvignon Blanc, made in the style of a Mâconnais wine under Jean-Charles’ guidance. The Chardonnay was barrel fermented and aged for 12 months in new French oak, while the Sauvignon Blanc was fermented and aged in stainless steel. The red blends 58% Cabernet Sauvignon with 38% Petit Verdot/Marselan (co-fermented) and 4% Sangiovese. The wine is fermented in stainless steel, with half the blend remaining in tank to preserve freshness and the other half aged in French oak barrels (50% new) for 24 months.

The aim of Jean-Charles and Kapil was to produce India’s finest wine, and we think they‘ve achieved that. Following the tragic demise of Kapil Sekhri in October 2020, the family is committed to continuing with Kapil’s passion and the partnership he forged between Jean-Charles Boisset and Fratelli wines.
