Wines of Vision, Balance, and Character
Jim Clendenen, the "Mind Behind" Au Bon Climat since 1982, creates internationally acclaimed Chardonnays and Pinot Noirs of balance and intrigue. But there is life beyond ABC. Jim has other projects of passion that allow him to make artisan, small lots of distinctive wines from a wider spectrum of grape varietals under different brands.
Visit our new "Last Chance Wines" webpage!
The Last Chance Wines section represents our "tweener" wines - between a new release and a library wine. It's the tail end of the vintage. They are priced like a current release but have yet to become library wines. Next time you see them, the price may have gone up - way up depending on the wine. Or you might not see them at all. While it's tempting to go onto the new vintage, make sure you are not passing up a gem that has a little more time in the bottle.
