|Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Michelle Brut is a traditional (aka Champagne) method sparkling wine from Washington State. At under $17 it offers impressive value. Beautiful aromas of crisp yellow apple, baked goodies (imagine Fig Newtons) and homemade bread. The palate is dry but nowhere bitter, showing more delicious fig pastries, apple, and biscuit. What a smart buy for a traditional method sparkling. Ideal with hors d'oeuvres, Thanksgiving meals, as a base for Champagne Cocktails, and at this price point a great candidate for your house bubbly to have on-hand, chilled, for those impromptu occasions that command sparkling wine. Tasted September 2015. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine has tons of freshness and would make an excellent aperitif. Yellow apple, stone fruit, and a toasty, yeasty note guide you through to similar flavours on the palate. Very crisp and refreshing. Enjoy over the holidays or use as a base for mimosas at your next brunch. Great value traditional method sparkling from a region not known for their sparkling wines.

The price is right for the sparkling wine out of Washington State. Nice lasting bubbles. Notes of flint with pear and lemon. Slightly sweet finish but refreshingly acidic. Looking to buy more and enjoy more evenings with Michelle!

This wine is a steal! Classic method sparkling with puckering acidity, fresh stone fruit, toasty yeasty note, loads of citrus zest and tangy Granny Smith apple characters. This light bodied sparkling is quite moussey on the palate and finishes crisp and refreshing. Enjoy on your patio, under some sunshine and perhaps with a shrimp cocktail.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A classic sparkling wine at a great price. Aromas of pear and yellow apple as well as fresh baked white bread. The taste is pear, apple, apricot and an interesting bit of nuttiness. Great acidity, long pear finish, and fine bubbles. Pair with friends and pretty much anything else.

An excellent brunch bubbly, this sparkling wine provides aromas of sweet apple, fresh apricot and baked bread. Try this wine with eggs benedict and smoked salmon. Tasted November 29, 2015.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
This is a fine bubbled traditional method from Washington state from 63% Chardonnay, 19 % Pinot noir and 18% Pinot Gris. Perception of off dry at 1.3g/100 ml. Balanced. Yeasty and citrus notes persist on a medium finish. This is an accessibly priced traditional method wine from North America and is a great choice for brunch or festive dinner parties where "Champagne infused" mimosas and cocktails are enjoyed as well as straight up bubbles in a flute. This wine is ready to enjoy. Pair with parties and bubbly lovers.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Pale gold with small uniform bubbles, lees notes shows on the nose along with some apple, citrus and toasty aromas. Medium light on the palate with a nice depth to the apple along with a kiss of sweetness. Not overly complex but very enjoyable for the price. A good aperitif wine for the holidays.

The price of this sparkling was the first thing that caught my eye! Fine bubbles with aromas of apple, baked bread and some yeasty notes. Mouth watering acidity with toasty notes. This would be a great bubbly to bring out for a big gathering - or just to sip on your own!
I re-tasted with some girlfriends and it reaffirmed what a fabulous sparkling wine this is! Everyone loved it - especially the price!
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Subtle nose of green apples. In retro, you get the pastry aromas. A little short and flat in the mouth, but festive and inexpensive.
|Michelle Brut is the perfect accompaniment for a wide array of foods. Sip with bagels and lox at brunch, or with appetizers such as calamari or dips. Brut also pairs very well|
with Japanese cuisine.
|Domaine Ste-Michelle Brut is fantastic value bubble from Columbia Valley, Washington made in the traditional method with a rich nose of crisp yellow apples, baked goodies (fig bars) and homemade bread. Perfect on its own. - Community Wine Reviews|
