Golden straw bright, aromas of mandarin orange, pear and banana; bright flavor notes of tropical citrus, melon, pineapple and a kiss of flint, balanced with moderate acidity and a medium finish.

2009 : Citrus flavors, slight dryness, adding a white pepper follow through, crisp. Not very impress less then expected; average to that of a $5.00 - $7.00 bottle with slightly higher price tag; in a nut shell? Average 80!

Holy cattle, whata wonderful wine if you like older Sauvignon Blancs. Heavy yellow oxidized color. The nose and mouth was very petolium and burnt caramel. Burnt orange with alot of acid on the mid palet with a gorgious butterscotch finish ... pretty awsome.

Pale straw in color. Aromas of smoke and citrus. Round taste of melons, oak, citrus, and pear on the palate. Good QPR, if a little disjointed. Advise opening a bit before serving and letting some of the initially strong oak settle down a bit.

    The Chateau St. Jean Sonoma County Fumé Blanc is extremely inviting with vivid aromas of peach, nectarine, fresh fig and a soft floral citrus note. The nose leads to luscious palate with flavors of red sweet apple, lemon citrus and a touch of honey. There is a core of vibrant lemon-lime acidity on the finish which makes the wine bright and very food friendly. - Winery

    Lifted nose that is reminiscent of hay and baked apple. Medium-bodied and silky palate that is dry with moderate acidity; fresh grass and pear dominate the palate with a spicy, peppery finish.

    Crisp and refreshing, this Fume Blanc offers fragrant aromas of green tea, lemongrass and lemon meringue pie. Flavors of grapefruit, spice and wet stone combine with lively acidity, creating a beautifully balanced wine with a lingering lemon zest finish.

    Soft aromas of apple blossom are enlivened with notes of fig and crisp citrus. Honey and white peach flavors complement the luscious mouthfeel, drawn out to a vibrant lemon-lime finish. This is an appealing, well-structured wine that's enjoyable from first sip to last. - WineryVARIETAL COMPOSITION:90% Sauvignon Blanc10% Semillon & ViognierVINIFICATION:Primarily stainless steel.

    This Fumé Blanc is bright and fresh. Showing notes of grapefruit, lemongrass, and jasmine, this wine will pair well with grilled chicken and seafood dishes.

    A crisp entry leads into flavors of nectarine, tarragon and lemon zest integrated with spicy vanilla oak and comes to a well-balanced refreshing finish.

    Winemaker's Notes:

    Vibrant aromas of fresh Asian pear, sweet citrus and blossom jump from the glass. The nose leads to a refreshing palate with distinct Fume Blanc flavors of juicy fruit and floral notes.
