According to Antonio Galloni - The 2011 Fume Blanc opens with attractive scents of citrus, flowers and melon. Here, too, the style is very much shaped by a cold vintage that brings out the steelier side of Sauvignon. Dollops of Semillon and Viognier add fragrance and inner perfume.
According to Connoisseur's Guide - Lighter in most aspects and squeaky clean in them all, this lively youngster marries a bit of white-melon fruit with token touches of grass in a very fresh and somewhat milder take on the grape. It is medium-bodied and balanced to firmness, and, while never an especially demonstrative wine, it hits the proper Sauvignon Blanc marks squarely and at very reasonable price.
Tasting Notes - The 2011 Chateau St. Jean Sonoma County Fumé Blanc is extremely inviting with bright aromas of peach, nectarine, apple blossom and notes of fig and spice. The nose leads to luscious mouthfeel with flavors of Fuji sweet apple, citrus and a slight touch of honey. There is a core of vibrant lemon-lime acidity on the finish which makes it bright and very food friendly.
