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.
91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - November/December 2011
Bright red. Floral-accented aromas and flavors of fresh red berries and anise, picking up a sexy hint of vanilla with air. Juicy and precise on the palate, with very good depth of flavor but no excess fat. Closes on a note of candied rose, with lingering sweetness and excellent clarity. This wine is delicious now but is balanced to age.
