Winemaker's Notes:

Full and rich with flavors of plums and warm spice, this Pinot is a crowd pleaser. The fruit is all Dijon clones from Block Two of the famed Bien Nacido Vineyard, and vintage 2001 is stellar. Jim Clendenen, the mind behind, feels it's the best La Bauge since the outstanding 1995 and 1990 versions. This is classic Santa Barbara Pinot with a price/quality ratio that's truly hard to beat.

About Au Bon Climat:

Au Bon Climat was created to produce high quality handcrafted wine from the traditional Burgundian varietals. They are one of the few California wineries to explore the gamut of these varieties: Aligote, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The winery is located within the Bien Nacido Vineyard, the source of the majority of their fruit.
