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.

($35) Bright gold. Slow-to-open nose eventually shows deep pear, honey, smoky lees and pastry spices. Pliant orchard and pit fruit flavors are given a distinctly firm edge by juicy acidity. Blends richness and spiciness, and finishes with good grip and smoky persistence.
