A super oaky nose. Oak dominates in the mouth, and guess what, the finish is full of oak. I believe there's some fruit there, somewhere, but come on, it was like sucking a cricket bat. Spicy (oaky!) finish.

I rate this Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay only a tad behind the outstanding 2006 Chardonnay from the Robert Young Estate Winery itself,and since the price of the Chateau St. Jean version is about half as much, it is a relative bargain. Quite a different style than the Robert Young Estate Winery bottling - a little less fruit-driven, a little spicier and toastier, and with a livelier, higher-acid feel to it. Excellent, rich, complex nose of ripe peach fruit and a heavy dose of nutmeg/cloves spices and butterscotch. Ripe, full texture, but with plenty of acidity backing it up, making it feel crisp, clean, and precise. Really an excellent price for a Chardonnay this classy.

a little too sweet for a chardonnay, but has amazing creamy buttery texture.

Light smooth oak, nice fruit. Acidic food enhances the frutiness. Goes extremely well with lemon dressed avocado or yogurt dressing. Highly recommended

The 2006 Chardonnay Belle Terre Vineyard (which sees full malolactic fermentation) offers more tropical fruit, honeyed apricot, and hints of mango, orange marmalade, and brioche. Medium to full-bodied, rich, and tasty, with good acidity as well as a ... Robert Parker. A Chardonnay wine from California in USA. 2006 Chateau St Jean Chardonnay Belle Terre Vineyard 750ml

Fresh aromas of yellow fruit, citrus zest and hints of honeysuckle and smoke introduce the nose of this single vineyard Chardonnay. A medium-bodied entry fills the mouth with notes of pear, citrus, honey and nutmeg. Balanced acidity and lingering notes of Meyer lemon make this an excellent food wine.

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92 HIGHLY RECOMMENDEDPerfumed floral, tangerine, nectarine and vibrant green pear give this full-bodied wine lots of lively flavors, ending with a long, clean finish that picks up a nice vanilla and honeysuckle note. Drink now through 2011.Wine Tasting NotesFresh aromas of lemon cream, Bartlett pear, vanilla and light tropical notes introduce the nose of this Chardonnay. A medium-bodied entry fills the mouth with notes of melon, lemon oil and cardamom spice. Bright acidity and lingering notes of roasted almonds and vanilla cream on the finish make this an excellent food wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

The Sonoma County Chardonnay showcases fruit from all over the county but, year after year, the Robert Young Vineyard in Alexander Valley takes a prominent role in the blend (16%). Alexander Valley , Sonoma Valley , Russian River Valley , Dry Creek and Carneros are dynamic growing regions that offer a new set of variables with each vintage. With Chateau St. Jean's Sonoma County wines, we look to make the most of these variables, seeking the best expression of Chardonnay from a particular vintage. Classic winemaking techniques to include barrel fermentation and seven months of sur lie aging in small French and American oak barrels impart richness and complexity to the wine. Approximately 84% of the blend underwent malolactic fermentation. Inviting aromas of lemon, pear and jasmine along with a touch of toasty vanilla mingle on the nose of this classic Sonoma County Chardonnay. Refreshing and balanced, the wine has vibrant acidity with pleasing flavors of pear, pineapple and roasted almonds that lead to a clean finish.
