Au Bon Climat 2017 Santa Maria Valley Pinot NoirRegular price £29
Jim Clendenen of Au Bon Climat has been making Burgundy-inspired California Pinot Noir (and Chardonnay) for more than 30 years. For much of that time, the house style was out of favour in most of the US, but it's a different story today - now Au Bon Climat's fresher, lighter wines are absolutely of the moment. This is a textbook example from the Santa Maria Valley. Lovely cherry fruit, a touch of spice, great freshness and excellent balance, it's an utterly delicious Cali Pinot from a master.
