Chateau St. Jean la Petite Etoile Fume Blanc 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Complex aromas of crisp lime, rich musk melon, toasty oak and green tea notes open the wine, leading to bright flavors of green apple and kiwi fruit and a dusting of white pepper. The mouthfeel is full and rich, with refreshing acidity and a lingering finish.

  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.

The 2010 Fume Blanc La Petite Etoile from a vineyard in the Russian River shows the influence of the site the presence of 30% Sauvignon Musque and aging in French oak barrels all of which yielded a rich textured white. All of the elements are beautifully balanced in this honeyed expressive Fume Blanc. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. - Antonio Galloni Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.
