Winemaker Notes

This Belle Terre Chardonnay presents fruit aromas of pear and dried apricots on the nose with creamy buttery hints of smoky vanilla. On the palate, forward fruit flavors integrate with creamy oak flavors to a long melon finish. The grapes for this Chardonnay were grown on the Russian River in the Southern Alexander Valley. The terrain consists of gently rolling land with well-drained gravelly and sandy loam soils. Plantings of Old Wente and Wente Greenfield Chardonnay clones date from the early 1970s. Entirely free run juice was totally barrel-fermented and aged sur lie in small French oak cooperage for nine months. The majority of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation.

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.
