Winemaker's Notes:

This is a wine of balance and restraint with underlying power. You can smell and taste the flinty soil. After bottle aging for a year the limey, lemony flavors and aromas are starting to become more apparent.

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.
