Au Bon Climat Santa Maria Pinot Noir

Au Bon Climat Santa Maria Pinot Noir  is a wine of great aromatics and character showing cherry and cranberry fruit, rose petal, earth and spice on the nose. The palate has lovely berry and spice notes. As with all Au Bon Climat’s wines the key word is balance.

Founded in 1982 by Jim Clendenen, Au Bon Climat (which means “a well-exposed vineyard”) produces internationally-recognized Pinot Noir & Chardonnay from grapes grown in California’s Santa Barbara County.

Jim eschewed a career in law for the lure of the vine following a month’s stay in Burgundy & Champagne when he was 21.

He has never looked back, although he is frequently to be found darkening the doors along the stretch of the Cote d’Or.

Unsurprisingly his wines combine the minerally precision & grace of Burgundy with the flair of the West Coast.

The fabled Bien Nacido Vineyard, first planted in 1973, is the primary vineyard source for Au Bon Climat wines. The 900 acre site is located at the northern end of California’s Santa Barbara County, on elevated bench land about 20 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean; to the east lie the foothills leading up to the Sierra Madre Mountains. Though the ocean can be viewed only from the hills surrounding the vineyards, the influence of the sea is felt in the cool temperatures of the Santa Maria Valley AVA. It is on the receiving end of the only east-west transverse mountain range in California allowing maritime-influenced morning fog and cool afternoon breezes making this a Region I in climate. Here, grapes thrive in one of the longest growing seasons in the state and are allowed extended hang-time on the vines to encourage the full development of flavour, colour, and other vital components.

Warm days and cool nights combine with soils composed of gravel and calciferous clay produce wines with a unique and much sought-after character. Effective, sustainable viticultural practices and vineyard management ensure the highest quality grapes year to year.The wines have distinctive aromatics, spice, minerality, complexity, and great balance. Bien Nacido Vineyard produces internationally renowned Pinot Noir and Chardonnay wines from more than 40 different producers.
