More About This Wine
About Au Bon Climat
Since it was founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat has been a well respected producer of Burgundian-styled California wines. Jim Clendenen's Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs are mineral, focused and restrained in the early going, and sometimes quite oaky.
90 Points | International Wine Cellar , November/December 2009
($35; 55% pinot gris, 40% pinot blanc and 5% aligote) Bright yellow. Citrus and pit fruits complemented by vanilla and baking spices on the nose. Juicy and aromatic in the mouth, with sweet peach and Meyer lemon flavors nicely firmed by a dusty mineral component and brisk acidity. Deftly blends fleshiness with crackling acidity and finishes with a lingering floral note. The food possibilities for this wine are pretty broad; I'd serve it with a buttery fish dish.
