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.

($50) Vivid ruby. A heady, sexy bouquet displays scents of red fruit preserves, incense and potpourri. Pure, sweet and precise red fruit and floral pastille flavors are seamless and silken in texture, with a subtle smoky quality in the background. Extremely suave, with excellent finishing cut and lingering notes of wild strawberry and allspice. This is showing really well today.
