Reviews and Ratings

Chateau St Jean vines are panted in the heart of Sonoma, and experience a great diversity of micro-climates and soils resulting in a rich complexity in wine styles. Sonoma is one of the coolest wine growing regions in California due to its proximity to the cooling Pacific Ocean breezes. Half of the 2012 vintage of this Chardonnay from the Sonoma Coast underwent a full malolactic fermentation and the other half did not, which keeps the balance between the creamy texture and balancing acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
