Chateau St. Jean Gewurztraminer 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Varietally pure and true. This is a crisp, elegantly structured wine with tropical fruit flavors, honeysuckle, vanilla and masses of dusty crushed brown spices. Finishes really powerful in fruit.

  Chatea St. Jean’s life started in 1920, when it was built as a summer home for Ernest and Maude Goff. It is located in Sugarloaf Ridge in the Sonoma Valley near the legendary Kenwood, California. While the 250 acres of land were originally planted with white grapes, Prohibition encouraged the planting of prunes and walnuts instead. When Chateau St. Jean was founded in 1973, the chateau was restored and opened to the public in honor of the Goff family. As the company says, “only the finest” from their wines, and they delivered on that promise in quick time. In 1999, Chateau St. Jean’s 1996 Cinq Cépages Cabernet Sauvignon won “Wine of the Year,” making the chateau the first Sonoma winery to receive this award. Chateau St. Jean was one of the pioneers in vineyard designation, stressing the importance of a grape’s origin. They didn’t just talk the talk - they took grapes from successful vineyards and made individually labeled Chardonnays, Pinot Noir, and Fumé Blanc. With the hard work and dedication of Margo Van Staaveren, the winemaker for Chateau St. Jean, the winery is able to make high quality wines with a persistent signature flavor profile across different vintages.

The exotic, essentially dry (there is some residual sugar), light to medium-bodied, spicy 2001 Gewürztraminer is pure rose water and lychee nuts.

Fans of the varietal will cheer the intense oriental spiciness that seasons the flowery, fruity flavors. Made Alsatian style, the wine is pretty dry, with a hint of honey on the finish.

Both soft and juicy, with honey, pear, peach and spice notes and a dash of citrus. Drink now.
