Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir

Founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat (which means “a well-exposed vineyard”) produces internationally-recognized Pinot Noir & Chardonnay from grapes grown in California’s Santa Barbara County.

Located at the foot of one of California’s most rated vineyards, Bien Nacido in the Santa Maria Valley, one of the finest sites in California, ideal for the production of the refined, Burgundian style of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to which Jim so aspires, ABC, as it is more commonly referred to, has won universal acclaim for its wines thanks to Jim ‘Wild Boy’ Clendenen, its winemaker & owner.

Jim eschewed a career in law for the lure of the vine following a month’s stay in Burgundy & Champagne when he was 21. He has never looked back, although he is frequently to be found darkening the doors along the stretch of the Cote d’Or. Unsurprisingly his wines combine the minerally precision & grace of Burgundy with the flair of the West Coast.

TASTING NOTES

A delicate and pretty nose of ripe strawberry, cherry and plum fruit, with a very subtle earthiness. Soft and supple on the palate, with great fruit focus and smooth tannins. Partner with anything from grilled salmon fillets, to poultry and game.
