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 | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2010
($35) Light, bright red. Very fragrant, displaying scents of red fruit, rose and baking spices, with a hint of white pepper. Lithe and precise strawberry and raspberry flavors show a suave blend of sweetness and energy, with zesty acidity adding lift. Finishes on a nervy blood orange note and with very good persistence. No fat on these bones.
