Looking for a new sparkly for New Year’s Eve? Domaine St. Michelle is the perfect pairing. #spon

Posted by on December 27, 2012

Last week a lovely packaged appeared on my doorstep.  When I opened it up I was delighted to find Domaine St. Michelle Brut and Brut Rose.


With the #TGtaste Twitter Chat happening this past Wednesday I couldn’t wait to try out these sparkling wines, and it couldn’t have come at a better time.  A time to celebrate with the holidays, and a time to welcome in a new year up ahead.

Because we all know when it comes to New Year’s Eve we all need a little sparkly to toast to.

But was Domaine St. Michelle worth it?


First up to try was the Brut.  After first taste with nothing else, the sparkling wine was on the dry side, however, the minute you added almonds to the Brut, it brought out all of the flavor.  It was the perfect combination.

The Brut didn’t work so well with cookies.  Trust me, I tried.  But a little bit of salt, and it tasted divine.  Very light and crisp.

I wasn’t a fan of the Brut Rose.  It was strong, and had those fruity undertones, but the full taste just didn’t fit in with my palette.  However, during the evening of #tgtaste there were definitely some fans out there.

However, the Brut truly won me over which even surprised me considering I usually go for more of the fruity type wines.

Disclosure: I was provided with samples of the Domaine St. Michelle Brut and Brut Rose wine on behalf of #tgtaste and Thirsty Girl.
