Winemaker Notes

Isabelle is unlike any other Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir. Our top Pinot Noirs prior to making Isabelle in 1994 were all single vineyard wines. Isabelle was the first top end Pinot Noir that was a blend from different locations. After the birth of his daughter in 1995, Jim Clendenen wanted to make a special wine in her honor. Isabelle has developed into a unique young woman and her wine is unique for Au Bon Climat, a blended, high-end Pinot Noir.

Dark, rich, and layered, this regal wine is remarkable now but will be even more integrated and complex in time.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Isabelle has fragrant notes of cranberries, red cherries and rose hip on the nose, with touches of dried herbs, underbrush and raspberry leaves. Medium-bodied, elegantly fruited and with fine tannins, plus bags of freshness, it has delicate red berry and earth flavors and good length.

The 2014 Pinot Noir Isabelle comes from the Bien Nacido and le Bon Climat Vineyards and was barrel fermented and aged in new French oak. It’s a beautiful, silky and seamless effort offering classic raspberry, spice, dried flowers and hints of cedar in an ethereally textured package. With good acidity, impeccable balance and a great finish, drink it over the coming 8-10 years.

Shows formidable structure and length to the vibrant cherry, plum and dried raspberry flavors. Lively acidity lingers on the rich, spicy finish. Drink now through 2022.

Showing plenty of personality, the complex 2014 Au Bon Climat Isabelle Pinot Noir brings bright red fruit, intriguing earthly delights, and ripe tannins to the fore. The wine's richness pairs it well with a savory Irish stew. (Tasted: November 17, 2017, San Francisco, CA)

Au Bon Climat, California
Au Bon Climat Winery Image

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.

Internationally recognized for gorgeous, pure fruit combined with great elegance, California Pinot noir thrives among the state’s cooler, coastal zones. Characterized by eclectic flavors and aromas of strawberry, black cherry, plum and potpourri with notes of forest floor, mushroom or black tea, the best California Pinot noir boast a supple texture and good acidity, giving them the ability to improve with age.

Credited with the beginning of Pinot noir’s glory in California, two growers, Joe Rochioli and Joseph Swan in the late 1960s independently planted Pinot noir vineyards in the Russian River Valley of Sonoma County. Today Sonoma County remains the leading producer of Pinot noir in the state, and Pinot noir is the leading red grape in the county, achieving its highest potential, in the Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast.

Other coastal appellations where Pinot noir flourishes include Carneros, Anderson Valley and most of the Central Coast.
