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.

Sanford & Benedict Vineyard is one of the great vineyards of the world. The "30th Celebration" vintage was so good, we created a 31st! Differentiating it from our annual Sanford & Benedict bottling, we used specially handcrafted Francois Freres barrels, and gave it extended barrel age to create this remarkable wine. 135 cases produced. Scored 95 points Jeb Dunnuck; 95 points Antonio Galloni's Vinous; 94 points from Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
