Library Wines- Au Bon Climat

Since Jim Clendenen's first vintage in 1982, the wines of Au Bon Climat have been the beacon of character, balance and restraint. No high alcohols or overblown fruit. Consequently, the wines age beautifully bringing a different expression to an already classy wine. Jim had the foresight to hold back his wines for future enjoyment. And now these extremely rare wines are available for those that know the difference patience brings. Need a specific vintage? Contact us. The library is expansive but we monitor their availability directly from the winery.

A wine that will  blow the socks off everyone! Every once in a while nature provides the substance for a truly remarkable wine. "Larmes de Grappe," or "Tears of the Whole Cluster," is one such wine. Amazing, Unbelievable, Mind-boggling and even “the best ever” were a few of the descriptions of the 2005 Pinot Noir harvest in Santa Barbara County. It produced this once-in-a-blue moon, extremely dense, rich, luscious berry and dark chocolate Pinot.
