Wine of the Week: Cuvée Pigoudet Première

For the love of rosé, is it ever going to be consistently nice out? These crazy temperature fluctuations and dark-as-night rainy days are getting me down!

This weekend in Maine was a gorgeous one, and I discovered a new favorite pink wine, just in time for boat season. I chose the Cuvée PIGOUDET Première from Provence for its ballet slipper pink color. For years I tried to pretend I didn’t love pink; I grew up in the era of grunge, after all! But truly it’s my favorite color, and I am happy to say that loud and proud!

Cuvée Pigoudet Première I tweeted that I was having this wine by the sea while wearing Lilly, a pretty happy moment in my life and one that gave hope for the season to come. The wine is gorgeous; fruity but dry, with a nice acidity, nectarine and lemon notes, and a slight effervescence making it ideal for a picnic celebration or beach day. It’s super refreshing and pairs well with the ocean and seafood but would also be awesome with things like grilled chicken and asparagus with lemon.

Memorial Day isn’t too far off now, but if you love to drink pink year-round, this one is a keeper and definitely worth stocking up on. And at $14/bottle, it’s a great value for the exquisite flavor you get.

    We went back to Oregon wine country last weekend, and I fell in love with rose all over again! I’ll have to see if we get this one out here.
