N/V Chateau Ste Michelle Brut Columbia Valley Sparkling Wine
The well known brand that's available anywhere for under $9.
The palate is lemony....no toast, a slightest hint of yeast....just some generic citrus...I actually am having flashbacks to my childhood and that drink “Five Alive.” Large, flimsy bubbles that dissipate quickly.
The finish leaves the mouth with a strange syrupy coating....some interesting floral notes but just an unsettle honey feel.
Quaffable and just a touch too sweet. We’ve had some good bottles right around this price range, this is fine, but after we’ve tried a bunch of sparklers right at this price point I’d put this low on my list. It just tastes cheap, sadly.
