Tasting Notes

"This wine comes from a parcel of chardonnay under contract to Au Bon Climat for more than 40 years. It has an old-vine reserve, starting off dense and broad, laden with expensive oak (half of the barrels are new). A leesy, toasted-nut savor comes up with air, the wine’s flavors quietly unfurling; after a day the texture becomes generous, layered and full of energy, the oak in retrograde. This clearly needs to grow into itself; when it does, serve it with butter-poached halibut."

The Producer

Au Bon Climat

Au Bon Climat is one of those estates whose reputation precedes them. Since 1982, owner/winemaker, Jim Clendenen has profoundly shaped the landscape of quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in California’s Central Coast, creating pure expressions of Santa Barbara County before the region was immortalized in the 2004 movie, Sideways, and long before it became the go-to appellation for “The New California.”
