Château St. Jean Pinot Blanc Robert Young 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

This Pinot has always been a favorite of the staff and has rapidly become one of yours, too! Vintage after vintage, our winemaker, Margo, continues to craft a deductive Pinot Noir from selected Sonoma County vineyards. She loves to say it’s got to be grown in the “right places” and she has fond them. Lovely aromas of raspberries, black plums, rose petals, cola and mocha welcome you in the glass of the Pinot. On the palette, this wine is velvety and satisfying with a gorgeous texture.

  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.
