Au Bon Climat

Clendenen Family

This not just another label, it is a project of passion for winemaker/owner Jim Clendenen.  These are artisan, small lots of distinctive wines where commerce is not the driving force. These wines have the luxury to be in barrel as long as they need it (5 years for the Nebbiolo!). Wines that are nuanced, long lived, food-friendly, with firm acidities, and moderate alcohol. For older vintages, see menu.

Sort By

Grown in Clendenen’s certified organic, home vineyard planted in 1998, the 2012 Chardonnay is another shining example of the quality Le Bon Climat Vineyard produces. This is wine is a powerhouse.
