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.
