Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut Columbia Valley 2011

Member Review by BRUNOHOEPERS:

“Sparkling wine is a wonderful yet often overlooked accompaniment to food. Bright acidity and effervescence cleanses the palate, while the delicate flavors complement a wide array of dishes. Brut pairs very well with Japanese cuisine, my favorite is with sashimi. Sip with bagels and lox for a relaxing weekend brunch.”- Rick Casqueiro, Winemaker

peach cobbler with a stoney aroma. Palate offers up strawberries and some tangerine with crisp bright acidity.

Nice citrus notes and overall a pretty decent balance. This was a nice, relatively inexpensive sparkling wine that went well with Sunday brunch.

Wonderful fruit both on the nose and the palate. Very floral, and a great pick if you are looking for a reasonable bubbly to take to a New Years Eve party or a boozey brunch! More fruit and floral than French traditional-method Champagnes.

Smooth and simple, this sparkling wine fits nicely with it's pricetag. Great for popping with convervative guests, but not the best for under 13$. Try a prosecco or a small production Spanish cava to have some more Fun while staying in the budget

Nicely balanced, Brut is not too dry and not too sweet. This crisp and jazzy wine delivers delicate apple and citrus characteristics with a fresh, light toastiness.

This distinctive medium-dry wine shows off an attractive plum skin hue. The Blanc de Noirs exhibits delightful spicy characteristics of ripe raspberry and strawberry aromas and flavors.

The richest and finest of this wineryandrsquo;s series of value bubblies. This Chardonnay-Pinot Noir blend is delicately scented with raspberry, peach, smoke and yeast, and itandrsquo;s smooth on the palate. So elegant and complex, itandrsquo;s hard to believe it costs so little.

A very fruity, slightly sweet sparkling wine thatandrsquo;s easy to drink and enjoy, with clean, straightforward peachy, appley, Riesling-like flavors. Simple and good.

Soft and creamy sparkler, with a delicacy to the fizz adds class to the pear and toast flavors. Reliable choice with the budget in mind. Drink now.
