Founded in 1982, Au Bon Climat (which means "a well-exposed vineyard") produces internationally-recognized Pinot Noir & Chardonnay from grapes grown in California's Santa Barbara County.
Located at the foot of one of California's most rated vineyards, Bien Nacido in the Santa Maria Valley, one of the finest sites in California, ideal for the production of the refined, Burgundian style of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to which Jim so aspires, ABC, as it is more commonly referred to, has won universal acclaim for its wines thanks to Jim 'Wild Boy' Clendenen, its winemaker & owner.
He regards Burgundy as the benchmark to which he should aspire and buys clones of Pinot Noir from Burgundy in a bid to replicate as closely as possible the restraint and finesse of the wines from that region.
Jim eschewed a career in law for the lure of the vine following a month's stay in Burgundy & Champagne when he was 21. He has never looked back, although he is frequently to be found darkening the doors along the stretch of the Cote d'Or. Unsurprisingly his wines combine the minerally precision & grace of Burgundy with the flair of the West Coast. @aubonclimat@verity_hudsonvalley@verity_longisland@jimclendenen#aubonclimat#clendenenfamilyvineyards#chardonnay#pinotnoir#nebbiolo#tocaifriulano#thepip#santamariavalley#estategrown#awellstockedhome #🙌🔥💥🎥
Sublime log cabin right at the enormous sea cliff.
Aromas of ocean, white flower and herb. Touch of elegance cedar at beginning, as the time passed sassy acidity snd mineral dominated even after all 22 yaers! Speechless!

Repost from @lenckdrank using @RepostRegramApp - 2015 #bonneaudumartray#cortoncharlemagne#grandcru#fantasticwine#dry#whitewine a beautifully textured and layered wine, white peach and nectarine fruits with subtle almonds, some sea salt, minerals and orange peel. It's not heavy and has a lovely rounded, silky mouthfeel as it leads you to a finish that expresses balance and grace. #burgundy#france#chardonnay#winelover#winetasting#lenckdrankchardonnay#lenckdrankwhiteburgundy 🍷Domaine Bonneau du Matray is located in the sub region of the Cote du Beaune on the Hills of Alice-Corton and Pernand-Vergelesses. 11 hectares in size and it's the only domaine in Burgundy that produces only Grand Cru wines and they come from Corton and Corton-Charlemagne and it's also considered a pioneer in biodynamics in Burgundy. It has an impeccable history and in 2006 was served at a private Birthday Party for Queen Elizabeth and until recently was managed as a family business for 200 years. 🍷 The owning family recently announced that it sold the majority of shares to American Billionaire, Stan Kroenke, owner of the exclusive Napa Estate Screaming Eagle, as well as being majority shareholder of the Arsenal Football Club. The sale has opened discussion on foreign ownership of Domaines and the tricky rules related to family owned vineyard successions which has seen land prices sky rocket over the past decades, with Grand Cru vineyards fetching an average price of $4M per hectare.
More local wine, more Brazilian gem, more skin-contact! That blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Peverella from Eduardo Zenker was a very delightful pick on Aprazivel’s extensive winelist. Turns out, with only 500 bottles produced, it’s also quite a unicorn wine - sorry @simply.wines! The Pinot noir was fermented with Chardonnay, both from the 2013 vintage, and then some 2015 must of Peverella was added to the wine to bring some extra freshness. A very interesting winemaking that brings out fresh, tropical notes, great acidity and keeping the perfect glou-glou factor with only 10.8% alcohol. Another gem of a wine that makes me want to drink more and more Brazilian and South American natural wines

Watch me order a glass of white wine without using ‘la carte’ ( the menu ), French style. And remember ... If I can do it, you can do it.
This is a tiny excerpt from a video for this month’s Comprehensive course. The next one starts in April and enrollment is already open on the site.
Here, I order like a true Parisienne, simply by asking ‘la serveuse’ what kind of white wine they have and choosing from the list she recites. C’est simple, c’est chic, c’est parisien. Grabbing the perfect spot ‘en terrasse’ on a sunny Saturday, however, is much more complicated. 😉 #feelParisian@le_cafe_de_la_poste
Mersault-Genevrières-2013, Domaine Jean Monnier & Fils, Bourgogne-🇫🇷.
🇧🇷Um dos meus crus prediletos de Mersault o Genevrières!
Tem a tipicidade,a untuosidade,com os tons amanteigados típicos do Mersault. Perfumes florais muito sutis e elegantes.
Essa tipicidade também é perceptível na boca. Possante de uma finesse e elegância bem harmônicas, com um incrível final. .
🇺🇸One of my favorite “Crus” from Mersault the Genevrières!
It has the typical unctuousness and the buttery tones a trade mark of Mersault. Very subtle and elegant floral scents as well.
Those impressions is also noticeable in the mouth. This wine is booster with a finesse and elegance well harmonized, with an incredible final taste, grand end. .
Mersault-Blagny,1er Chateau de Blagny-2013, Louis Latour Mersault-🇫🇷.
🇧🇷 Considero o Louis Latour e outros gigantes da vinicultura uma Fiat, Renault e etc do vinho. Já deixaram de fazer o vinho de forma tradicional, apenas engarrafam zilhões de garrafas. Nunca bebi um vinho do Latour que fizesse meu coração disparar e considerar o melhor vinho dessa região.São constantes, medianos a bons, entregam oque prometem, mas dificilmente excepcionais.
Esse Mersault Blagny é mais ou menos por aí, bom vinho , bem feito, medio perfume, média acidez e sabores, final um pouco curto mas no geral é um bom vinho.
Se tornou um ótimo vinho levando em conta o preço que paguei R$130,00 na loja Brilho. .
🇺🇸When I think about Louis Latour and other winegrowing giants as him I like to compare with a Fiat, Renault of the world of wine. They already stopped making wine in the traditional way a long time ago, they only bottle millions plus of bottles. I never drank a Latour wine that made me goosebumps or consider they wine the best in the region. They have consistency: medium to good ones. Delivering what they promise, but hardly exceptional.
This Mersault Blagny is more or less what I’m saying. Good wine, well produced, medium scent, average acidity and flavors, a bit short in the end but overall it’s a good wine. .
