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
Very ripe fruit flavors with a soft fleshy mouth feel and a super clean finish.
Light, crisp, on the coarse side but pleasantly tart, with grapefruit and herb flavors. Drink now.
Bright, tart and lively, with citrus, apple and white pepper aromas and flavors. Drink now.
Bright and crisp, lively with peppery peach and citrus flavors, lingering nicely on the finish. Drink now.
Earthy, somewhat tart style has a welcome generosity and sense of pear-centered richness as the finish sails on. Drink now.
Distinctively spicy, this Washington bubbly is jazzy on the palate, delivering pear, black pepper and yeast notes that persist on the creamy finish. A great value at this price and score. Drink now.
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.
