Domaine du Landreau, Crémant de Loire (France) “Volage” Rosé Brut Sauvage NV

($28):  This wonderful sparkler is not your typical Crémant de Loire Rosé.  Made entirely from Cabernet Franc, it has all of the allure of the grape with power and depth.  It’s been aged on the lees for 36 months, which imparts a lovely texture.  Beautifully balanced, its spine of acidity keeps it fresh. This rosé cries for food — grilled bluefish or tuna, because the heft of the wine will support it.  It’s a great buy.
