Chateau St. Jean Fume Blanc Sonoma 2009

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.

  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.

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!

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 great value, the 1999 Fumeacute; Blanc includes 11% Segrave;millon in the blend. Approximately 32% is barrel-fermented and the remainder is fermented in stainless steel. The wine does not see any malolactic, but is picked very ripe, which is obvious from the smoky, honeyed melon, passion fruit, and floral-scented bouquet. Medium-bodied, with gorgeous layers of fruit, it is meant to be consumed over the next 1ndash;2 years.

An absolutely outrageous bargain is the 2009 Fume Blanc Sonoma, which exhibits notes of flint, honeyed grapefruit, orange rind and mango in a fresh, light-bodied, vivacious style bursting with fruit and acidity. It's hard to believe that a wine of this quality can be found at this price point. Nicely aromatic, featuring fresh ginger and smoke overtones to the juicy lime, pear, melon and peach flavors within. Smooth texture. Drink now. 36,500 cases made. -MW

The 2001 Fumeacute; Blanc is a delicious, fragrant, floral, pungent, spicy, fruit-driven, light to medium-bodied effort that is full of character as well as pleasure. At the price, itrsquo;s a steal.

Fresh fruit aromas of orange blossom, lemon drop and grapefruit zest leap from the nose of this Fumeacute; Blanc. On the palate, nectarine and fig flavors integrate with spicy vanilla oak and come to a well-balanced, crisp finish.

Tangy, with lemon, orange, passion fruit and nectarine flavors lingering in the vanilla tones of the finish. Drink now.
