My wife's favorite inexpensive go to sparkler which I enjoy as well at times. This was one of those times. Nice mousse and bead. Lots of yeast, some citrus and a hint of strawberry. Not as sweet as some prior bottles with nice oomph (acidity). Fairly priced rose Champagne in the low 30's in PA.
Darker than the usual rosé. By a lot. Rich berry fruit, in fact, one of the fruitiest champagnes I have ever tried. Think Kir Royale without the sweetness. But there is the requisite acidity to make this really fun. thedrunkencyclist.com
My wife's reasonable go to sparkler. 10 bottles in the last year. Sometimes good and sometimes better. This was better. Not as red or as sweet as some bottles. Pretty pink with very nice mousse and bead. Nice balaced palate of strawberry, minerals and brioche. Perfect acidity and punch. Good QPR.
Opened on thanksgiving. I thought it was quite pleasant and was fantastic with a light salad with a balsamic dressing. It thought perhaps it would pair well with turkey, but I think this is more of a salad / aperitif rose rather than a fish / poultry rose. It's refreshing and loaded with bright berry fruit. It was interesting, though, revisiting this at the end of the night at room temperature and less bubbles. It was a different wine, but surprisingly tasty, like a wonderful dry pinot noir-based rose.
