Light golden in color.  Nice mousse with lots of small bubbles.  The nose is nice almonds, slightly yeasty, and some ginger.  This is spry and a bit shy at first.  Ginger and slightly chalky.  Good acidity.  Works well with food.  Some complexity.  Good finish.  Not a big wine but certainly persistent.  Good value for Champagne.
