Winemaker's Notes:

Bright aromas of ripe stone fruit, lemon zest and hints of honeysuckle jump from the glass at the first whiff of this single vineyard Chardonnay. Notes of vanilla and subtle spice lead to a medium-bodied mouthfeel with notes of melon, and wet stone minerality. The wine has a creamy texture with bright acidity and the classic Robert Young Chardonnay long-lasting lemon oil finish.

About Chateau St. Jean:

Founded in 1973 in the Sonoma Valley, Chateau St. Jean is the quintessential Sonoma winery. Chateau St. Jean produces an extensive portfolio of Sonoma County wines as well as vineyard designated wines, limited production Reserve wines, and the flagship Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Margo Van Staaveren uses her more than 30 years of vineyard and winemaking expertise with Chateau St. Jean to continue the tradition of highlighting the best of each vineyard site to produce exceptional wines. Chateau St. Jean was the first Sonoma winery to be awarded the prestigious “Wine of the Year” award from Wine Spectator Magazine for its 1996 Cinq Cépages, a Bordeaux style blend of “five varieties” and has long been recognized as a leader in vineyard designated wines.
