Deep salmon Pink in color.  There is a nice mousse with lots of tiny bubbles.  The nose has seltzer, and strawberries.  Reminiscent of the Faygo Red Pop of my youth.  Nice.  On the palate, there is a bit of depth and complexity.  Dry.  Nice acidity.  Good finish.  Would go with practically any food.  This drinks quite well now but should develop some maturity and drink well for a while.  Aged Champagnes are not to everyone's taste but I think this should easily last for a decade.  delicious and more traditional Rose.
