Domaine Ste. Michelle Blanc de Blancs Columbia Valley Sparkling Wine was absolutely terrible. Undrinkable. I was given a bottle, and so do not know what this usually goes for, but I wouldn't pick this up at any price. Bitter as heck, so badly it couldn't even be drunk when mixed with other things, like Midori or OJ. I forced a little of this down, and even felt sick the next day. Absolutely the worst wine I have ever drunk. Very dry, no flavor apart from bitter and sour.
Good for the price. Very mellow taste. It made me wish I could "taste" more.
Two and a half glasses
External Reviews for Domaine Ste. Michele Blanc de Blanc
Although Ste. Michelle states there is only chardonnay in this non-vintage wine, there is a delightful riesling-like freshness to both the nose and flavor. Firm acidity frames appealing apple, pear and apricot flavors. The wine is nicely balanced with a touch of sweetness — or is it just the ripe fruit? A festive wine and with a price to celebrate.
Bright, tart and lively, with citrus, apple and white pepper aromas and flavors. Drink now.
A wonderfully balanced and tasty sparkler with creamy effervescence; the chardonnay shows through with tropical fruit and hints of apple; a notable value.
Blanc de Blancs is made primarily from Chardonnay and has essentially the same fruit profile.
A sweet-tart sort of balance lets the pear and citrus flavors play against each other, finishing with a touch of toast. Drink now.
This pear-scented Washington state wine has a clean finish that makes it ideal with hors d’oeuvres and main courses.
Light, crisp, on the coarse side but pleasantly tart, with grapefruit and herb flavors. Drink now.
