woman on wine with amy reiley
I don’t know about you but I’m ready for spring – and not just spring weather, I want spring wine. And I figure that until Mother Nature delivers on bright, clear days, we can at least drink like we’ve got great weather. So here’s a splash of Provencal rose.
2009 Chateau de Pourcieux
This is a lovely, classic – somewhat simple – pink made of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsault. Its flavors are of bright raspberry and strawberry, with a fresh, thirst-quenching finish.
2009 Chateau de Saint-Martin Eternelle Favorite
This wine was made with the ladies in mind. A pink suitable for giggling girls and sophisticated women, it offers devastatingly delicious tropical (passion fruit) aromas and flavors accented by a veritable bouquet of floral notes.
2009 Chateau de Saint-Martin Grande Reserve
Serve as an aperitif for refreshment or offer this brightly acidic, faintly herbal rose with dinner – it will stand up to either treatment like something more serious than a wine colored pink.
2007 Chateau D’Esclans
This is not your typical rose. Using unconventional techniques, the winery creates this big, barrel-aged, lees-y wine that at once has the freshness of Provence and the body of White Burgundy.
2009 Saint Andre de Figuiere Vieilles Vignes Rose
Complex and unexpected, this wine delivers the typical fresh berry notes but mingled with vanilla and a hint of baking spice. A wonderfully delicate wine, it almost tiptoes across the tongue.
