This is an outstanding representation of St. Jean’s Reserve Chardonnay. The wine invites with aromas of warm lemon cream pie, toasted hazelnuts and bright notes of tropical fruit like pineapple and mango. The palate is complex with layers of flavors including orange blossom, lemon zest, browned butter and baking spice. The well structured wine is balanced with a rich texture and expressive acidity. The lively finish lingers with a classic lemon oil flavor.

Blend: 100% Chardonnay
ABV: 14.4%
