Chateau St. Jean Fume Blanc 2005 wine review by (PB)
Pale clear with slight green touch on the pour with gentle but finessed bouquet that is extraordinary--some citrus and other fruit which is baffling.
The palate is fresh and rather classic Sauvignon Blanc though a tad weak in structure. Reading the label I realized why I was baffled by the bouquet. I thought this was 100% Sauvignon blanc but is blended with Semillion which explains the nice but out-of-character aromas. This is a tasty white from Sonoma and the always reliable Ch. St. Jean. It will run you about $13 so raise a glass!
