Year in and year out, probably our favorite Chateau St. Jean wine, and one of our favorite Chardonnays from anybody. Fortunately they haven't priced this one out of reach. Wonderful nose of lemon, orange, vanilla, caramel. Fruit flavors beautifully framed by the perfect acid level. Has the clean, crisp, food-friendly feel of a good French Chardonnay: no rough edges or overdone oak. - WB Team 2001-07-15
