Has the usual Bien Nacido hard spice of black pepper, clove, and juniper. La Bauge au Dessus translates into "the decadent party up above" these vineyards are the highest planting of Pinot Noir at Bien Nacido Vineyard.

This vintage is the most complex La Bauge bottlings ever. The fruit comes from original plantings that Jim Clendenen planted in the early 1990s. Wonderful aromas of earth, meat, spice, vanilla and mixed wild berries.

Winemaker's Notes:

91 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): The 2008 Pinot Noir La Bauge Au-dessus is made from 55% Bien Nacido and 45% Le Bon Climat fruit. This is a richer, deeper style than the Rincon. Layers of dark cherries and plums emerge from this fleshy, pliant Pinot Noir. The inner sweetness and perfume weave through effortlessly to a round, inviting finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (Aug 2011)
