One of my favorite affordable-ish rose Champagnes.  It's too good just for celebrations. Made from 40% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir.  Light salmon pink in color.  A nice mousse with lots of tiny bubbles.  The nose has nice strawberries, some orange peel and a bit of rhubarb.  On the palate, there is a hint of sweetness though for the most part, it is dry.  Nice cherry and slight rhubarb notes.  A nice streak of acidity.  Long finish.  This wine is incredibly food friendly.  It will go with about anything, but fried foods are ideal (and of course pop corn).  Bottles should be consumed within five years and from a source that has good turnover.
