Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay 2008 Sonoma wine review by (PB)
Light golden hue with pronounced of aromas full of creamy, almost floral, citrus with vanilla hints a slight touch of pineapple and tropical fruit.
Palate--nice rich texture, racy acidity, a touch of the bitters, with vanilla pudding, sour orange, and an interesting touch of smoke on the finish. It is a quick wine with fleeting character but is a great food wine and palate cleanser for fatty foods. Now, I see this wine around in the low teens but I found it on sale in New Hampshire for $8 a bottle. At that price, raise a bottle and stock up with more!
