James became England’s joint-highest Test wicket-taker with the 383rd dismissal of his career in his 100th match and the 32-year-old seamer has gone on to beat Sir Ian Botham’s tally. But he’s not just been spending his time on the field.
Embarking on a passion project, Jimmy has been working on bringing out a wine collection. Recollecting his family holidays to the South of France, James’ palate took him to the Languedoc region where he blended 3 wines in conjunction with the Robert Vic family vineyard in Beziers. The numbers relate to memorable moments from his cricket career to date, with the long term plan to add to these wines as his career progresses.
Number 11 is the Reserve Blanc, referring to the position he’s played most at for England. A blend of Vermentino, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Viognier, it’s aromatic with white stone fruit flavours.
54 is the Reserve Rosé, a blend of Cinsault and Grenache with delicate strawberry notes. 54 is the number of England Test Innings he went without being dismissed for a duck.
81, the Reserve Rouge, refers to his score for England against India in 2014, part of a world-record. The blend is made up of Grenache, Cinsault and Cabernet Sauvignon in a light, fresh and fruitful style with inviting red berry aromas.
