95 points - James Suckling

A fresh, fruity white with very subtle, mineral and light herb or pine undertones to the dried apples and pears. Full-bodied, creamy and complex with a wonderful flint undertone at the finish. Drink or hold.” - James Suckling,, April 2020

Vineyard Notes

Since the early 1970s, when Chateau St. Jean first began working with the Dick Family, they have built a reputation as one of the premier grape-growing families in the region. The Belle Terre vineyard terrain consists of gently rolling land with well-drained, gravelly and sandy loam soils.
