By Matt Goldstein

In a blind taste test that featured wine experts, sommelier’s, decorated chefs, winemakers, food critics and many other wine connoisseur’s, a Washington State sparkling wine, Domaine Ste Michelle Brut, has defeated champagnes retailing for more than 10 times its own price.  For the 2nd year in a row, a $12 bottle of Domaine Ste Michelle Brut has been declared the winner of the Wine Trials and defeated Dom Perignon in the process.  Perhaps the most famous Champagne in the history of wine, more for its price than anything else considering that virtually no one can afford it, Dom Perignon retails for about $140.  Domaine Ste Michelle Brut sparkling wine retails for about $12 but has even been seen online for as little as $8.99.  From the book, The Wine Trials 2010, authors Rubin Goldstein and Alexis Herschkowitsch give detailed account of how 150 wines $15 and under beat out wines over $50 in “rigorous brown bag blind tastings.”  Domaine Ste Michelle Brut is made from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes and has a “fresh and light” style.  Domaine Ste Michelle Extra Dry was also a finalist.

  • I do trust all the ideas you have introduced to your post.

    They are very convincing and will certainly work.

    Nonetheless, the posts are very quick for newbies.
    Could you please prolong them a bit from subsequent time?

    Thanks for the post.


  • A motivating discussion is worth comment. There’s no
    doubt that that you ought to write more on this subject,
    it may not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t talk about these issues.

    To the next! Many thanks!!


  • I don’t know whether it’s just me or if everyone else encountering issues with
    your blog. It appears like some of the written text within your content are running off
    the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and
    let me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be
    a problem with my internet browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Many thanks

    I bought 4 bottles of Domaine Ste Michelle this weekend for Sari & Kevin’s wedding. Everyone seemed to really enjoy it although I never got the chance to try it, but I did get a hold of the Bushmill 21 year. :)

    Who are these “so-called” experts? Somebody needs to buy me a bottle of
    Dom-P so I can decide for myself?!!!!

    I’m not buying Dom P, but we can do a taste test with Moet, Veuve-Clicquot, Domaine Ste Michelle and a few others and see what happens.
