2016 Chateau St. Jean Single Vineyard Belle Terre Vineyard Alexander Valley Chardonnay

14.4% alc., $35. The winery has made wine from this vineyard since the 1970s. · Moderate light golden yellow color in the glass. Aromas of lemon, pear and riverbed. Really nice harmony in a flavorful style with dancing acidity. Citrus, honey and nutmeg are the main tastes with oak way in the background. Very inviting, with a brightness and purity that elevates this wine that also sports a quenching and haunting finish. Score: 94. Reviewed March 17, 2018
