Founded in 1973, Chateau St. Jean was conceived as a true fine wine estate in the European style, where wines from individual vineyards were kept separate to fully capture individual character of each site. The wines received immediate critical acclaim, and Chateau St. Jean was soon recognized as a leader in single vineyard designated wines.
This opulent Chateau St Jean Chardonnay has enticing aromas of ripe tropical fruit, enhanced with flavors of crème brûlée, spiced apple and lemon meringue on the palate. Full-bodied and buttery, this Chardonnay has beautiful, creamy sweetness balanced by natural acidity and oak integration to deliver a toasted vanilla finish.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast **Editors Choice** This is a well-made, well-priced white, with a bright entry of pear, apple and vanilla pudding. It develops layers of baking spice and toast as it goes, offering a modest richness and creamy texture.
