Lots of oak on the nose--I have the feeling that this is one of those California Chardonnays that everybody now loves to hate--some hints of pineapple. Initial palate sensation is nice, refreshing a bit of acid, but it doesn't take long before the vanilla/caramel from the oak takes over. This wine will go better with tonight's grilled chicken that it does by itself. US$13.99 at Costco.
External Reviews for Chateau St Jean Chardonnay Robert Young
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.
