Chateau St Jean has been renowned for chardonnay since its inception. Early on they developed vineyard designated wines, practically unheard of back then. Their white wine leadership continues today. Try a bottle of the 2010 Sonoma County Chardonnay. It's vibrant, bright and juicy. Citrus, apples and toast abound. Its verve and vigor make this a great food wine. Costs about $15.
