Winemaker Notes

After hand-picking, whole cluster pressing, and complete primary malo-lactic fermentation in the barrel (which are 50% new French), the wine was aged sur-lie for 12 months. The final product 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.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Beautiful, with less noticeable oak, the 2010 Chardonnay Sanford & Benedict Vineyard offers beautiful typicity with ripe apple, mineral, toasted nut and hints of flowers to go with a fresh, lively and awesomely pure and detailed palate. Clean, elegant and with building richness, it has a layered, multi-dimensional palate feel, great acidity and a focused finish. Classy all the way, it’s a great Chardonnay! Enjoy it over the coming 4-5 years, although it will probably evolve gracefully after that as well.

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.

The largest and perhaps most varied of California’s wine-growing regions, the Central Coast produces a good majority of the state's wine. This vast district stretches from San Francisco all the way to Santa Barbara along the coast, and reaches inland nearly all the way to the Central Valley.

Encompassing an extremely diverse array of climates, soil types and wine styles, it contains many smaller sub-AVAs, including San Francisco Bay, Monterey, the Santa Cruz Mountains, Paso Robles, Edna Valley, Santa Ynez Valley and Santa Maria Valley.

While the region could probably support almost any major grape varietiy, it is famous for a few. Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel are among the major ones. The Central Coast is home to many of the state's small, artisanal wineries crafting unique, high-quality wines, as well as larger producers also making exceptional wines.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
