Dosage is 8 grams per liter. Silvery light gold in color. A nice amount of smaller bubbles. The nose has seltzer and gun powder. On the palate, this is lively. Plenty of a (red) apples with a tart sourness that is very nice. A reasonably long finish. This is an affordable Champagne that is very user friendly. It will work well on its own and with just about any foods but especially salty foods. This should be consumed within the first few years of release. There was no disgorgement date on this bottle so purchase from stores with good turnover.
