Domaine Ste. Michelle, Brut Luxe 2006

Michelle Luxe 2006 #1

100% Chardonnay.  From Washington state’s Columbia Valley.  Aged sur lie in bottle for five+ years.

Straw yellow.  An estery, à la mode nose: bready, lambent and toasted.  Ample, sherbet-y orchard fruit with citric cut: jonathan apple, bartlett pear.  Stylish if a bit anodyne.  A well-executed sparkler.  For drinking soon.
