The 2013 Pinot Noir Le Bauge Au-dessus is a delicious entry-level estate wine from Au Bon Climat. Scents of rose petal, orange peel, mint and white pepper give the 2013 much of its characteristic upper-register. The 2013 is lifted, gracious and super polished. Most of this fruit is Bien Nacido, with some fruit from Le Bon Climat. The 25% whole clusters are nicely integrated. Jim Clendenen moves from strength to strength with this superb range of wines. Clendenen seems to be enjoying a sort of late career Renaissance now that he is making wines again in his own, personal style while so many of the values he has long championed have been adopted by today's younger generation. This is an impressive set of wines to say the least. Best of all, prices for most of these wines remain very fair in today's world. I can't recommend these new releases highly enough. (AG)
