Wine Pick: Pascal Pibaleau La Perlette Sparkling Grolleau NV

Pascal Pibaleau La Perlette Sparkling Grolleau NVIf you aren't familiar with the ancient "rural method" for making sparkling wine, this fizzy, ruby-toned rosé is a marvelous introduction. Its single fermentation was stopped in the tank and then restarted in the actual bottle you're buying, which can lead to some unpredictably funky flavors. Biodynamically produced in the Loire Valley, this wine bears an uncanny resemblance to cherry cola. Drink with roasted fruit or blue cheese.

Drink with:

Maple–Cherry Semifreddo [JBF]

Cherry Clafouti [JBF]

Chilled Plum Soup with Green Grape Sorbet, Horchata Gelée, and Crispy Rice Clusters [JBF]

Cherry Cola Float [Cooking Channel]

Roasted Strawberries [Leite's Culinaria]
