2010 Saint André de Figuiére Cotes de Provence Cuvee Magili

PINK 4/9/12  2010 Saint André de Figuiére Cotes de Provence Cuvee Magili (13% abv., $18, Paul Marcus Wines): A bright but pale salmon pink, this youthful wine is classic Provence, with aromas and flavors of strawberry and watermelon and just enough earthy minerality to give it some backbone. Crisp, mouth-watering acid is refreshing and easily invites an extra taste or two. Conclusion: This is a great summer pink. A very good value for The Real McCoy.  Let’s raise a glass to warmer weather and plenty of pink to pass the summer days!

About Tom Riley

My passion for wine has led me to my third career. First, many years in public relations and publications for colleges and universities in New York and New England. Then, as my children grew, a career as a high school teacher so I could be home with them after school. Now that they have both finished college, I'm digging constantly deeper into the world of wine. In 2010 I earned the WSET (Wine and Spirits Education Trust, UK) Advanced Certificate, Level III, with Merit. I am now a candidate for the WSET's Diploma, Level IV, working to finish those studies as fast as I can. In the mean time, I'll continue to share my views as I examine all things related to wine through my work as a journalist, educator, and consultant.
