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

External Reviews for Domaine Ste. Michelle Brut Columbia Valley
Light, lean and smoky sparkler, with a nice touch of pear on the dry finish. Drink now.
Soft and appealing for its lemony pear flavors, finishing with a touch of earth. Drink now.
Bright and appealing for its citrusy flavors, shaded with toasty notes as the flavors echo.
Elegant nose with yeasty complexity. Intense and tightly knit, complete palate with a long, stylish and fresh finish. From 2009.
Vibrant aromas of citrus and apple fruit, with a faint hint of peppermint and toast. Well-balanced citrus/tart apple fruit and acidity; tart, persistent finish. Great with oysters.
The regular Brut bottling is the star of the new Michelle lineup (formerly Domaine Ste. Michelle). Yeasty and foamy when first poured, it settles into a light and pleasing sparkler, with gentle hints of lemon curd and fresh cream.
Light, bright and spicy, with modest fizz to the pear, tangerine and floral flavors, lingering easily. Drink now.
