Au Bon Climat
Jim Clendenen, The Mind Behind Au Bon Climat (yes, his title), is well known in the world of wine. He is kind of a missing link between the old world and the new world. Jim knows every single producer in Burgundy and he is one of the driving forces behind the movement emphasizing balance, character, and drinkabilty in CA Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. We have been working with him since vintage 1985; he stands for us and we stand for him and his beautiful wines and his visionary mind. Jim left us in May 2021. He died in his sleep.
