Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay Hrzn 2009
My rating 86: Body has noticeable Glycerin what gives it the smooth mouth feel. It is of the dry fruity kind. On the nose it comes up short nothing long or appealing. The other ratings mention Mango taste, and other wild stipulation o tastes that I cannot follow. This all BS to the extreme! Just take it as it is a simple full bodied Chardonnay that white wine lovers will enjoy.

External Reviews for Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay Hrzn
A wine with intense fruit flavors of ripe apple, pear and citrus. Partial barrel fermentation and aging on the yeast lees impart richness and complexity with a subtle blend of vanilla bean and hazelnut flavors.
You'll find some tasty apricots, peach and vanilla-oak flavors in this soft, creamy wine. It's a nice California Chardonnay, slightly sweet in the finish, and a great accompaniment to salmon or pork.
Very similar to the prior vintage, this popular medium-bodied Chardonnay opens with pleasing stone fruit, vanilla and floral spice aromas. On the palate, the wine is well-structured and perfectly-balanced.
Rich and intricate, a Chard that satisfies with its array of white peach, pineapple, mango, buttercream and spice flavors. Finishes with a slightly sweet, vanilla ice cream flavor.
Pale, bright yellow. Leesy aromas of peach, spicy oak and roasted nuts. Juicy, clean and fruit-driven, with a ripe peach flavor firmed by harmonious acidity. Another fruit-driven Chateau St. Jean wine with little pretension of profundity but plenty of early appeal.
A real classic. A wonderful butter bouquet, built on classic dry peach, caramel and vanillins. Long, round balanced finish. Buy this wine and discover why insiders consider St. Jean one of the Top 10 values in Chardonnay.
Lots of oak here, with toast, butter and caramelly vanilla riding over underlying peach and tropical fruit flavors. The texture is creamy smooth and rich. Nice Chardonnay at a decent price.
