Champagne: Domaine Ste. Michelle Extra Dry

January 1, 2008 - wine

Lovely, lightest golden color. No ‘winey’ aftertaste. Overwhelming favorite from the group – complex nose with many fruits. Difficult to compare to bruts, a completely different style of champagne. Up next: comparison to other Ste. Michelles and a head-to-head with Veuve Clicquot, the heavyweight champ. Bubble taste not as refined as the Mo√ęt, larger, coarser feel, but not to a point to detract from bouquet. Overall: surprisingly good, light, dry and complex. Definitely worthwhile in terms of bang for the buck.
